These powerhouse Maple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies will give you energy to take on the day like a champ’. They’re sweetened naturally with banana, maple syrup and coconut to make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast.
Sometimes we just need a cookie for breakfast, amiright?
No but really, let’s face it. Trying to make a nutritious breakfast each and every morning can sometimes be a struggle and a half. Often the debate between “15 more minutes of sleep” and making a hearty, well-rounded breakfast can be a hard battle to win. So for those days… enter, the breakfast cookie.
These aren’t really cookies, per se. They’re kind of like imposter cookies, but in a still-healthy, still-delicious kind of a way.
These Maple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are sweetened naturally with banana, shredded coconut and maple syrup, unlike your conventional cookie which might be filled with butter, all-purpose flour and sugar. They don’t contain flour, and are formed with oats and chia seeds, so could be made gluten-free if required for dietary reasons.
So for the mornings that require 15-minutes of extra sleep, here’s an easy way to still start your day off on the right foot. Make them ahead of time and throw them in the freezer so you can eat em’ as you need em’.
Yields about 10 large cookies
