Breakfast is a time when I don't really have the energy to cook something. Come on I'm just not a morning person. So I love to bake things on Sunday for the week. Muffins, bread, and breakfast cookies and things to freeze for the week. My lack of being a morning person has spawned a huge list of Easy Breakfast Recipes like these banana bread breakfast cookies that are easy to make and many times I can make ahead of time.
Easy Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies
The number one reason I love this recipe this because my kids hear ‘cookie' and think they are getting a big treat for breakfast when I know it's good for them! Lots of great yummy stuff to get their day off right.
You can change this recipe up to use whatever nuts you want to use and change the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips or even peanut butter chips.
Ok here is what you need.
6 ripe bananas (the kind you use for banana bread)
2 & 3/4 cup quick oats
3 palm fulls chocolate chips (yes this is how I measured them!)
1/2 Cup of Shredded Coconut
1/2 Cup of nuts of your choice (I used pecans)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Now pay attention this is where is gets super hard. Ya ready? Add all the ingredients to a bowl. Done? Now mix them together…..
Whew! Now that the hard part is over go ahead and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease the baking pan. Then roll the dough into 1 inch around balls (or into your desired shape) and place about an inch apart on the parchment.
Next bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until done all the way through. Let cool before eating.
There you have it. Super easy recipe make several batches to have a great breakfast for the week!
