As you know breakfast can be tricky for me though, because I go to work so early and I don’t have time to eat before I leave. That's why I love having on-the-go breakfast options. One of my favorite foods ever is oatmeal...in basically any form but ESPECIALLY in cookies. That's why I love these healthy oatmeal breakfast cookies. They're great for breakfast, or a snack! Like guys, they're really so good!
You know what’s also delicious? breaking them up into my yogurt and eating them as kind of a “cookie granola”. That's a thing...for sure.
Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
2 medium ripe bananas
1 cup oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax-seed
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Optional add-ins: Dark chocolate chips, nuts, craisins, etc.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients together (except add ins), it may seem slightly more wet than regular cookie dough - you can add a few more oats if needed but you’re going to stick the dough in the fridge so it will thicken a bit.
Place dough in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to let it thicken up a bit (it will still be pretty soft)
Scoop dough into 1-2 inch balls on a non-stick cookie sheet (you may want to pat them down with a spoon a bit if you want your cookies more flat and less round)
Add your dried fruit, chocolate chips (other desired toppings) to the top of your cookies
Bake for 10-13 minutes until they are slightly starting to brown
Let cool and enjoy!
