These cookies are great for breakfast because they are healthy, but they are also a great snack! Now, clearly, these aren’t quite as wonderful as normal chocolate chip cookies, however, they are still pretty great! Even your picky eater will like them (just add a little extra chocolate if you must), so it’s great for getting some good nutrients into your children!
Making the breakfast cookies
First, mix together your dry ingredients.
For my flour, I grind up hard white wheat berries to make flour. However, any kind of flour works! Oat flour, all purpose flour, whole wheat flour. I haven’t tried a kind that didn’t turn out yet.
For the nuts, I really like chopped walnuts, but use whatever you will eat! You can totally omit this.
Try adding in some dried fruit for a fun twist!
For the chocolate chips, I prefer mini chocolate chips, but normal size still tastes just as good!
Mix together your wet ingredients.
Bananas work best if they are over ripe, however I’ve used some normally ripe ones before. This recipe is great for those brown bananas sitting on your counter.
You don’t have to use coconut oil. Olive oil will work, too.
If you don’t have honey, use maple syrup, or any other liquid sweetener you like. If you don’t have a liquid, just add some sugar to the dry ingredients.
The milk can be any kind of milk you choose. Cow, almond, coconut. Whatever floats your boat!
Peanut butter can be subbed for any nut butter. It can also be omitted.
Enjoy your breakfast cookies!
Clearly, this recipe is versatile. So, play around to make it just right for you! If you feel like adding something I haven’t suggested, go for it! It’s your kitchen, have fun!
