Anyone else love a good breakfast cookie? I may be addicted and try them from every local bakery. Because I'm trying to stick to a budget and quarantine baking is in full force, I've been working on mastering an at home version. These are the perfect thing to have on hand for those mornings you're running to bus (will happen eventually) or for that picky eater who won't eat breakfast items.
2 1/4 cups oats (you can use whatever kind you have)
good pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup of honey (I'm going to test maple syrup but haven't yet)
2 bananas well mashed
1 cup nut butter (my kids like peanut butter best)
1/2 sunflower seeds (have also used finely chopped walnuts and would like to try coconut flakes)
1/4 cup raisins and/or 1/4 dark choc chips (or whatever you like)
Just mix all of the ingredients together.. I drop them on to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (you could also used a greased sheet). I shape and flatten them a bit because they don't rise etc. I bake at 325 for about 15+ minutes. Once they cool completely you can put them in Tupperware or baggies etc store and you can also freeze them and pull them out when you need them.
Next time I think I will try adding a little shredded coconut, but all in all this basic recipe has been a hit. My four year old is probably the biggest fan. Do you have a go to easy breakfast or snack recipe? I'd love to hear about it in the comments. Thanks as always for stopping by.
