When you were a kid did you ever dream of waking up to homemade cookies for breakfast? Sounds yummy, huh? Well, these cookies are the perfect morning treat because they are packed with healthy vitamins and contain no added sugar! Plus, you only need three ingredients! I love how simple they are to throw together in the morning, as I have become less of a big breakfast gal. Sure, I love to make my kids pancakes and scrambled eggs, but other than that, I want something easy and quick.
The bad thing about easy and quick breakfast solutions is that they’re typically not the healthiest of choices. Sugar-filled instant oatmeal packets, sugar-filled cereals and don’t forget those sugar-filled pastries and pop-tarts!
These breakfast cookies make me feel good when I serve them to my kiddos. The kids get their “cookies for breakfast” dream come true, and I know they’re enjoying a healthy, real food breakfast. Seriously, who wants to feed their kids stuff with 30 difficult-to-pronounce ingredients?
If you’re kids aren’t consuming enough fruit, this is a fun way to add some bananas to their day. Plus, these cookies are great for gluten-free diets too! You won’t find a smidgen of flour in these yummy treats!
Rolled oats have been one of my fave ingredients for a couple of years now. They have taken easy baking to the next level. I love to throw a handful in my shakes and smoothies too! These cookies are just one more excuse to enjoy some healthy rolled oats in the morning!
If you’re a busy mom and you’re looking for something super-quick but healthy to feed your family in the mornings, you definitely need to try these simple, healthy cookies. Plus we always drink milk with our cookies — so you get some added calcium right there!
These cookies can be frozen too, so make a double batch for later! I recommend freezing up to one month. Recipe follows!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 large bananas, mashed
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Stir rolled oats and bananas until thoroughly combined.
- Gently, stir in chocolate chips.
- Roll cookies into 2 inch balls, and then flatten to make the perfect cookie shape.
- Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet for 12 minutes.
