What if I told you you can have cookies for breakfast? Awesome, right?! Well these cookies are nutritious, full of fiber and completely good for you! Waaaaay better for you than store bought cookies that are full of artificial ingredients, preservatives and GMO’s. Instead they are full of oats, bananas, nuts and seeds… and chocolate, if you would like.
And yes, I eat these cookies for breakfast. And snacks. And dessert. They are guilt free, animal product free, gluten free and 100% good for you!
Clean and Simple Breakfast Cookies
– 1.5 cups of rolled oats
– 3 ripe bananas, smashed
– 1/4 cup each of nuts or seeds of your choice ( I used unsalted sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and raw almonds – I only used a few tablespoons of flax seeds)
– 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, if desired
– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
You can use whatever ingredients you have on hand! Dried fruit, chia seeds, walnuts, or just leave it with banana and oats! Experiment with other spices – nutmeg, pumpkin spice, etc.
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Spoon out a large tablespoon of mixture and place on a cookie sheet that’s lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Flatten out and shape into desired thickness and shape. I use my hands for this part and ditch the spoon!
Bake for 13-15 minutes. Once done place on a cooling rack to cool. They will be thick and chewy and completely irresistible!
