I love eating cookies for breakfast. Of course I don’t mean chocolate chip cookies…they have to be wholesome and nutritious if I’m going to start my day with them!

My banana oatmeal cookies and pumpkin breakfast cookies are completely suitable for breakfast because they’re packed with whole grain rolled oats, no refined sugar or dairy.

These Banana Breakfast Cookies are fashioned the same way, with creamy almond butter and fun add-in’s to take them over the top.

They make eating breakfast fun, but truthfully they’re great any time of day. 🙂

Ingredient notes

  • Oats. For best results, use rolled oats for this recipe as quick oats will not lend as much texture.
  • Banana. Overripe bananas are best for this recipe as they have a sweeter flavor.
  • Almond butter. Sub with your favorite nut butter or sun butter.
  • Maple syrup. Substitute with honey if desired.
  • Coconut oil. Sub with your favorite oil.
  • Add-in’s. I added mini dark chocolate chips and unsweetened coconut flakes to my cookies, but your favorite dried fruit, chopped nuts or chocolate chips will work great.
