Healthy Breakfast Cookies

If we want to have energy and focus on our daily tasks, we need to eat breakfast. Having breakfast gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus on our callings. Breakfast also kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day.

 

These Breakfast Cookies are full of nutritious ingredients, perfect to get your day going! If you are tempted to skip breakfast, grab one of these. I make them ahead and keep them in the fridge or freezer.

Breakfast Cookies
  • 1½ cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 c. coconut flakes
  • ½ tsp. Himalayan pink salt
  • 1½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. allspice
  • ¼ c. of almond meal
  • ⅔ c. chopped nuts – I used hazelnuts, cashews, and almonds
  • ½ c. chopped dates
  • ½ c. raisins

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 large (or 3 small) bananas, mashed
  • ¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except wet ingredients and blend well until evenly mixed. In another bowl, combine oil, banana and vanilla extract. Mix in with the dry ingredients until mixed well. Take a large spoon full and make a cookie shape – I placed some of the batter in a 1/4 cup measuring cup and plopped it onto the cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
