Breakfast "Cookie"

Breakfast "Cookie"
Yields: 12 cookies

I've seen a few different recipes for a breakfast cookie, and I immediately thought of Josh. He needs something he can grab when running out the door in the morning, something that can also satisfy his insatiable sweet tooth, that I can still feel good feeding him....

Hence, this breakfast "cookie" made without flour, sugar, diary and eggs.


2 bananas - well ripened (mine weren't so to this I added 1 tablespoon brown sugar)
4 oz applesauce
1/3 cups craisins - or dried fruit of your choice. I'll try blueberries next time
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or cardamon would also be nice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon flax seeds
1 cup traditional whole grain oats
Pinch of salt
 - You could also experiment with various chopped nuts for added protein

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Add sliced banana into mixing bowl and smash slightly - but leave in pretty large chunks

add applesauce, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and sugar (if needed)
Mix in oats and flax seeds

Let mixture sit for 5-10 minutes to help hydrate the oats.

Spoon mixture onto greased baking sheet, my mixture made 12 "cookies" - although next time I will make a huge batch and freeze them (already baked).

Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes until cookie has turned golden brown in color, then let cool. My cookies kinda stuck to the cookie-sheet - so next time I will line the sheet in wax or parchment paper.
