Most schools in Tennessee have already gone back to school. Our classes won't be starting til the end of the month, but I've been test baking these yummy breakfast cookies. Em sent me the recipe and after a teensy tweak I've not had a single complaint.
Big hit with boys and farm workers alike. Made with no sugar, lots of protein, healthy coconut oil and chia, I think they might be a perfect fit into your back to school breakfast program.
:: Breakfast cookies::
makes approx 2 dozen
preheat oven to 325
3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c nut butter
3 fresh eggs, room temp
3 T coconut oil, not quite liquified
1 c ground oatmeal, or quick oats
1/4 c chia seeds
1/3 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 c raisins
1/2 choc chips, or just press into cookie tops
Mash bananas in a medium mixing bowl. Add nut butter and stir well to combine. Add eggs and coconut oil, then oats, chia, coconut and raisins. Let the soupy-ish batter sit for about 10 minutes while you get the parchment paper out and line your cookie sheets.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls and press down a little bit. They don't spread, so whatever shape they are when you put them into the oven they will be when you pull them out.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes (mine take 27)- you might want to rotate your pans about half way through, but it's not necessary.
They really are that easy to make. You won't be disappointed, and I think with the chocolate chips, even picky eaters will try them...
