Cookies for breakfast? Yes please! I am always searching for ways to have breakfast on the weekday mornings. Most mornings I fail at this but these breakfast cookies give me the ability to succeed. Yay for success!
The great thing about these cookies is that they are are easy to make, they come together quickly, and they have no sugar. OMG! No sugar in a cookie? Have I gone mad?!? I think so. Now when anyone tries to give me any slack about cookies for breakfast, I tell them to shove it because these cookies here are healthy.
I always tend to make them in the afternoon in anticipation that I will eat them for breakfast throughout the week. The reality is that these usually end up devoured 30 minutes after I make them. If you and your family have self-control and can resist, then this will be a great breakfast cookie. If not, then enjoy this afternoon snack recipe.
Here are the recipe deets.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by laying out some parchment paper.
Next, mash 2 medium sized ripe bananas in a bowl until they look like mush.
Next, add 2 cups of old-fashion oatmeal, 1 cup unsweetned applesauce, 1 Tbsp honey, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp vanilla extract and stir to combine.
Next, add 1/3 cup raisins and 1/4 cup white chocolate morsels and stir to combine.
Next, use a cookie scooper or a tablespoon and place mixture on parchmanet paper by the spoonful about 2 inches apart. Use the back of a spoon or your fingertips to flatten each spoonful until it resembles a cookie.
Bake in your preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until golden. Your house will smell delicious. Once done baking, remove and let cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Then remove to cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy:)
