Who said you can't have cookies for breakfast?! These breakfast cookies are tasty, filling, and packed with healthy ingredients. They are also very versatile, you can add any of your favorite ingredients to make them your own!
Got old bananas sitting on your counter but don't want to make unhealthy banana bread? This is a great healthy alternative. You could also make my Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Banana Muffins.
When I lived in the dorms in college I ate these EVERY MORNING for breakfast. They were great because they kept me full during my morning classes, and who doesn't want to start their day with chocolate? Just mash your bananas then mix up all your ingredients in one bowl.
I love adding superfoods like chia seeds, hemp hearts, and ground flax seed to these cookies. It is a great way to get them into your diet without really noticing them. This recipe is also full of fiber which keeps you full longer!
Scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter for each cookie, you will have to form and flatten each one with your spoon to make a cookie shape. Bake for 15 minutes.
Look at that chocolaty goodness!
5 ripe bananas
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup PB2 powder (optional)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
2 Tbsp hemp hearts
*This recipe can be easily modified if you don't have the exact number of bananas, it is just a two bananas to one cup oats ratio
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Mash bananas and add them to a large bowl.
Then add the rest of your ingredients and stir everything together. Add any additional ingredients that you would like to taste.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spoon out about 1/4 cup of the batter (doesn't have to be exact) onto your parchment paper and form a cookie shape by flattening the top and rounding the edges. These cookies won't spread or raise so make them how you want them to look.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Store your cookies in the fridge for a couple days, or I like to freeze mine to make them last longer. I then warm them up in the microwave for a warm gooey cookie for breakfast!
