Banana Breakfast Cookies Recipe
Banana Breakfast Cookies are a healthy banana cookie with oatmeal and mini chocolate chips! Eat cookies for breakfast - they're portable for on-the-go.
Servings: 20 cookies
- 2 overripe bananas
- ¼ cup coconut oil liquid
- 2 tablespoons (33g) peanut butter
- ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon ground flax optional
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ cups (128g) quick oats
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Mix bananas, coconut oil, and peanut butter with a hand or stand mixer until combined. Mix in sugar, egg, baking soda, vanilla, and flax. Mix in flour and oats and blend until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop 2 tablespoon sized cookies onto your baking sheet. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand (they will not flatten by themselves while baking). Bake for about 10 minutes until they start to get golden brown. Cool before removing from cookie sheet.
Best served warmed in the microwave! Keep some in the freezer for a fast morning breakfast.
You can also bake these as 1/4 cupfuls for a larger cookie.
