Easy Breakfast Cookies are a hearty and tasty nutritious start to your morning.
Hey friends! Before I get started sharing my Easy Breakfast Cookies I just want to say how great getting back into a routine feels! Who’s with me on that one? There’s nothing like sleeping in your own bed and hitting the gym again to feel at ease. I’ve touched on how important it is to take rest days and even multiple back-to-back rest days after intense training’s. My workouts have been pretty intense the past month so when I was gone in Chicago last week I took about 4 days off from working out. This week my body feels rested and recovered! Okay now onto cookies… duh!
I am such a cookie girl. I heart pretty much any type of cookie. Especially a warm, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookie dunked in a cool glass of milk. I know you totally agree with me.
Lately I’m kind of over having hard-boiled eggs for my mid-morning snack. Sometimes I’m all about em’ and sometimes I want nothing to do with them. My taste buds go in waves. So I’ve turned to alternative snacks to hold me over until lunch time including fiber cereal and almond milk, soaked nuts and these easy breakfast cookies.
I don’t have an exact recipe for them because I throw together pretty much anything I have on hand however the base is always bananas.
- 3-4 bananas and mash them up
- Then add a drop of vanilla extract
- Then I add in some nuts (walnuts, chopped almonds, etc.)
- And some seeds (chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pepita seeds, sesame seeds, etc)
- And some ground flax and raisins
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
- Mix up all the ingredients in a bowl and scoop out in spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
- Bake for about 25 minutes
See! Easy! These cookies are always packed full of naturally fueling ingredients and since they’re cookie size they make for an easy grab-n-go snack!
(3-4 mashed bananas makes about 14 cookies)
Make these in your Sunday food prep to have on hand during the week and double the ingredients if you need more.
