Time for a healthy breakfast can be fleeting. Make these Chocolate Coconut Oat Banana Cookies ahead of time for a quick grab and go. Made with just 4 ingredients to make these gluten free, egg free and added sugar free.
Now that January is history, it’s ok to bake again. At least that’s what I think. Valentine’s Day is coming and so I say let the desserts come out in full force.
You know I’m all about trying to make healthier desserts. So why not a breakfast dessert-cookie? It’s calling your name… Eat me, I’m really just oats and banana. I’m perfect to grab and go in the mornings. Don’t judge me as unhealthy by the rich chocolately outside.
I’m making the food talk…
I can’t help it. I’m going a little crazy with cabin fever. It happens every year. Wisconsin winters get a little crazy. Monday, we broke a 100 year record for the largest snowfall within a 24 hour time period. Go figure the roads weren’t plowed very well…
But back to the cookies. These would be an easy balanced breakfast. Breakfast seems to be source for many of my inspirations for recipes. Remember my Blueberry Bars? Yep, our regular oatmeal with blueberries did that, which of course also created my Blueberry Oatmeal Popsicles. And then there’s the Coconut Blueberry Muffins… The list goes on and on. It goes without saying, I love blueberries, oats and coconut.
I also love cookies. And chocolate. And coconut. And…
Make ’em. You’ll love them. 🙂
