Cookies for Breakfast?
Why yes! I don't mind if I do!
These are a staple around here. And who doesn't like cookies for breakfast?? This is a cookie you can feel good about eating. For a seasonal touch try the pumpkin version. These breakfast cookies are gluten free, sugar free and egg free if anyone cares. If you leave the chocolate chips out, its dairy free too! You could always substitute a dairy free chocolate.
We love taking sweets and changing them into a healthier version. Check out this Breakfast Banana Split, or Chia Breakfast Pudding!
How to make Breakfast cookies
I love this recipe because it super easy and doesn't take a lot of time to put together. If you got up a little bit earlier, you could whip this together.
We also eat them as a healthy snack, and I've even made them ahead and enjoyed the next day. They are best when they're warm though.
Step One: Gather your ingredients, mash up the bananas, and warm the coconut oil
Step Two: Stir it all together. Really, just throw it all in a big bowl and stir so everything is mixed well.
Step Three: Roll and bake! Take a small handful and roll the "dough" into a ball, place it on your baking sheet and just flatten a touch. They go in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Notes about breakfast cookies
Another reason I love this recipe is because it's so adaptable. If you don't have the specific ingredients you can easily change it up.
- Don't have 3 bananas? Use two.
- Don't have coconut oil? Use Olive Oil or Avocado oil. I've had to make adjustments sometimes, and they always turn out.
- Ovens do vary, mine always go for 15 minutes and they are perfectly golden on the bottom. But you may need a little more or less time
- Try some different add ins, like dried cherries or dried cranberries or dried apples.
- If you don't have almond meal, you can grind up whole almonds in a blender or food processor until they are closer to an almond meal texture. Some chunks are okay, but mostly ground.
