Em sent me a pinterest link a few months ago that inspired me to make breakfast cookie that can also double for dessert or pre-workout protein treat. This recipe has been a 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 morning 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...
I like to make these for dessert the night before I am serving them for breakfast. It sure does streamline the morning experience to have the meal prepared! Chocolate chips not optional in any of the baintrain's opinion.
