3 Ingredient Breakfast Cookies

3 Ingredient Breakfast Cookies

3 ingredient breakfast cookies

I love breakfast. It is my fav meal of the day, but most mornings I do not have time to sit down and have a big breakfast. I am always running late and in a rush out the door.

I mean sitting on the couch snuggling with the most adorbs Frenchie ever kinda takes precedent over whipping up some scrambled eggs in the kitchen [<-am I right?].

Five out of the seven mornings I have a green juice for breakfast. I prep my juices at night so I do not have to worry about it in the morning. I can grab it and head run right out the door.

But last night instead of making juice, I had a couple of bananas sitting on my counter starting to turn brown. Normally, I cut them up and stick them in the freezer [I make this recipe with them or use them in smoothies]. But, I am traveling for work this weekend and decided to make my 3-ingredient breakfast cookies to take with me.

Yes, I said breakfast and cookie in the same sentence. My 5 year old self would have loved these!

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

These breakfast cookies are only 3 ingredients and taste like you are eating dessert for breakfast [<- which BTW I am totally ok with eating dessert for breakfast], but in reality you are eating a really healthy cookie.

Bananas are high in potassium, can help lower blood pressure and have shown to improve your mood. Oatmeal is high in fiber & protein and low in fat. Almond Butter is rich in monosaturated fats (helps reduce bad cholesterol) and has antioxidants.

These cookies are great because you can throw them in a zip lock bag and take them with you, you do not need to sit down and eat them before you leave your house. Plus, you are eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast instead of grabbing for a chemical filled pop tart or calorie filled granola bar.

Three ingredient breakfast cookies

Even though I call these breakfast cookies, you really can eat them anytime of the day. They make a great dessert to eat after dinner as well. You can also add a ton of other ingredients such as chocolate chips [<- they are the best with them], walnuts, craisins, almonds, shredded coconut, flax seeds … you get where I am going.

These are the perfect lil treat to keep in your house.

Ingredients:

2 ripe bananas

1 cut rolled oats

1 tablespoon almond butter (or any butter of your choosing)

Banana-Oatmeal-Almond-Butter-Breakfast-Cookie

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash the two bananas with a fork in a bowl. This takes a couple of minutes and is a great lil arm workout. Once bananas are all mashed up, add your oats. Mix well. Next, add the almond butter and combine everything together. Scoop one tablespoon of the batter and place it on a baking sheet (I use tinfoil on my baking sheet so I don’t have to clean up as much). You should make about 12 cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Either eat right away or let cool and enjoy the next morning for breakfast. I like to sprinkle cinnamon on mine.
