Healthy Breakfast Cookies. These moist breakfast cookies feature bananas, oats, almond butter, honey and chocolate chips | Five Marigolds

I have a serious sweet tooth in the morning, so I’ve long been on the hunt for sweet breakfast recipes that are healthy’ish AND taste good. It’s been a long journey! After a testing a  lot of recipes and coming up short, I’ve finally found something that balances a little of both – it’s super yummy, and the ingredients are in the healthy’ish zone that I can feel good about serving my kids. Rich flavor – with no flour, butter or refined sugar.Another thing I love about these cookies is that they are really satisfying. I’m almost always hungry within 30 minutes of breakfast, but not with these.  Ladies and Gentleman: I proudly introduce you to Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies.

I’ll often mix up the dry ingredients before I go to bed, and in the morning just add the banana, nut butter and honey and pop them in the oven. So good! Here is the recipe with my preferred ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/3 C. quick oats
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 C. nut butter (I prefer almond butter)
  • 1/4 C. honey
  • 1/3 C. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, folding in the chocolate chips at the end.
  3. Scoop 3 tablespoons per cookie onto a parchment-lined baking sheet  – I used my Pampered Chef large scoop to make easy work of this – and gently flatten to the desired shape.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes and let cool on a baking rack.

Makes around 15 cookies. These stay good for about three days, or can be frozen for later. Be sure to separate cookies with parchment paper in storage.
