Yummy Breakfast

IMG_1436

Cookies for breakfast! They were AWESOME! So easy to put together, a little sweet, and pretty good for you!. I based my recipe on this allrecipes.com recipe for pumpkin protein cookies.

Banana Breakfast Cookies

  • 1/4 cup honey (I didn’t measure though and it was maybe a little less)
  • Heaping 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (plus extra to bring up to the right consistency)
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (I used one large banana and didn’t measure)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil (I used coconut oil)
  • 1 egg
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients Stir in wet ingredients (and add extra flour to make it a more cookie consistency, but still fairly wet, you just don’t want it to spread too all over the place in the oven). Drop by ice cream scooper fuls. I made 6 with this recipe.
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes in preheated oven. DO NOT OVERBAKE: the cookies will come out really dry if overbaked.

I fully plan on brining this to the weekly breakfast rotation. So far we have dutch babies, baked oatmeal (though I vary it. less sugar, and may try out a few more recipes), and now breakfast cookies. I can’t wait to try different variations, pumpkin, apple, etc. Oh, yeah, me and two kids, totally ate all six breakfast cookies this morning!

So I guess you could use pumpkin puree instead of banana in that recipe?? We'll try those this weekend.

Yep, but I would add back in some spices, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (or your own blend). You could always double the recipe to have leftovers for during the week!
