COOKIES FOR BREAKFAST....
Okay Guys, I know you're probably thinking this has to be breaking all kinds of breakfast rules... but REALLY it's not!
Especially since most of us have been told all our lives.... no cookies for breakfast or till after dinner.
But since they're loaded with oats, nut butter and bananas, it's really okay to substitute these for a your standard bowl of oatmeal or muffins.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THESE
- Rolled Oats
- Almond Butter- or any other nut butter
- Maple Syrup
- Vanilla Extract
- Dark Chocolate Chips
HOW TO MAKE THIS BREAKFAST COOKIES RECIPE
Start by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper and preheating the oven.
Next mash the bananas in a mixing bowl with nut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Stir in oats and cinnamon, and fold in chocolate chips last.
Scoop out equal portions and place on lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven till set.
I used this two tablespoon cookie scoop to make these.
Allow to cool about 10 minutes prior to removing from pan.
STORING THESE BREAKFAST COOKIES
You can store these in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days or the fridge for up to a week.
For longer storage freeze in an airtight container for several months.
RECIPE TIPS AND OPTIONAL ADD INS
Cookies will not spread during baking so you don't necessarily need a lot of space between them.
If you prefer flatter cookies you'll need to press them down prior to baking since they don't change their shape.
I wet my hand slightly and just pressed down lightly and rounded these out prior to baking.
You could make them smaller or larger depending on your preferences.
Here are some optional add ins....
- Chia Seeds
- Hemp Seeds
- Any kind of nuts such as walnuts, pecans or almonds
- Dried fruits
