Breakfast Cookies

Almond Joy Style…

FullSizeRender-122

I don’t know what it is, but when I wake up in the morning and take that first sip of coffee, I immediately start to crave something sweet to go along with it.  I hate starting my day and diet off on the wrong foot, but if I’m being honest I have to admit that I have grabbed that bag of Oreos on more than one occasion.

But..

That all changed when I learned about a basic recipe for Breakfast Cookies that can be switched up with different types of healthy ingredients to keep everyone happy and on the right track each and every morning.

Here is what you will need:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup of quick cooking oats
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Today I am making the cookies in honor of one of my most favorite candy –  Almond Joys – so I added…

  • ½ cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup of shredded coconut

Here is what you will need to do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mash up your ripe bananas with a fork.  Mix in your oats, egg, almond milk, honey and vanilla, making sure to get everything nicely combined.

Next add in the chocolate chips, almonds and shredded coconut (or whatever fun ingredients you have up your sleeve).  Give it all a good mix and make sure that all the extras are nicely distributed.
