Directions

I love these "breakfast cookies." No added sugar, and they contain fruit, whole grains, and protein. Even lower in sugar if you use natural peanut butter, and chocolate chips are optional.

Breakfast Cookies

* 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
* 1/3 cup peanut butter ~ creamy or chunky
* 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 1 scoop vanilla protein powder ** (can be made without, cookie will just be lower in protein)
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 tsp butter flavor extract ** (optional)
* 1 1/2 cups quick oatmeal ~ uncooked (or use old fashioned oats for more oatmeal texture)
* 1/4 cup chopped nuts (peanut, walnut, or your favorite)
* 1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips (**optional)
Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix mashed banana & peanut butter until completely combined then add in the applesauce, vanilla protein powder & the extract(s) ~ mix again until all are completely combined.



Add in the oatmeal & nuts to the banana mixture & combine. (** add the optional carob / chocolate chips at this time if you want them mixed throughout)

Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet & flatten cookies into circles. (** if you just want the carob / chocolate chips on the top of the cookies, add now)
Bake 20-30 min. until golden.
