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
- 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.
