Banana Breakfast Cookies

August 31, 2016

You: “Cookies for breakfast?”

Me: “Heck to the YES!”

You: “No way”

Me: “Yes way!”

I love how we communicate…and I love these cookies so much! Such an easy recipe and a great on the go snack or breakfast!

This is one of my new favorite way to use up ripe bananas…  and when I make these they definitely end up being ‘anytime’ cookies instead of breakfast cookies!  The texture is deliciously moist and soft, similar to a banana bread.  The chocolate chips are optional (the kids love them) and it makes these yummy cookies taste like a real treat!  You could certainly replace them with extra raisins, dried fruit or whatever additions your family likes best!

These cookies contain no added fats, no butter, no oil and no white or brown sugar (unless you add the chocolate chips) but they DO contain tons of flavor and are really delicious!

Try them! Here’s what you’ll need:
