I am not vegan but I am cooking for a friend and wanted to make a homemade dessert for her. Most of the vegan desserts that used pantry-standard ingredients sounded more like exercise bars which aren't a treat to me. I was worried about this one using the banana as the binder thinking the flavor would overwhelm everything else, but they turned out really well. If you didn't know they were vegan, you might not figure it out without prompting. Since most non-organic sugar is not vegan, I substituted organic turbinado since that's what I had and they turned out fine.
