Breakfast Cookies

I don’t like rules when it comes to food. Like the kind that says you can’t have cookies for breakfast (and I’m not talkin’ about Cookie Crisp cereal). Or that you have to eat this particular recipe at breakfast – have these anytime! They’re amazing.

cookie 1

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup Old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 tbs Peanut Butter (I like to use crunchy for this recipe)
  • 4 squares Chopped dark chocolate (or 1-2 tbs chocolate chips)
  • Optional add ins: Raisins, Dried Cranberries, 1 tbs ground Flaxseed, 2 tbs protein powder.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Press down (these cookies don’t spread). Bake 8-10 minutes. Serves 8.
