Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I am all about some breakfast food. I love it so much. If I was able to, I would go full out Lucy Ricardo and make a big breakfast every day for my husband and I (minus the burnt toast). On Sundays, I usually make a batch of something to snack on for breakfast for the week. I have some great recipes like Yummy Breakfast Casserole and Gluten Free Banana Blender Bread.

I came across this recipe from A Night Owl (the blog name) and thought I would give it a try. It was SO easy to whip up and made the kitchen smell delightful. I took some “cookies” to work the next day and my co-workers ate them UP! So you should give these a try!

What You Will Need:

  • 2 Large ripe bananas
  • 1/2 Cup peanut butter (i used smooth but you can use crunchy)
  • 2 Tablespoons of pure maple syrup OR honey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups of Old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of toppings (i used chocolate chips and blueberries)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork
  3. Stir in the peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth
  4. In a separate bowl, stir the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together
  5. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add the beaten egg in and mix until smooth and completely blended.
  6. Fold in the toppings you choose
  7. With a spoon, grab chunks of the batter and form into a flat circle and place on a greased cookie sheet. *the cookies do NOT expand so you can place them close together*
  8. Cook for 12-15 minutes
  9. Enjoy!
