Healthy Breakfast Cookies
Do you ever have those days where you just need a quick grab and go snack? These soft and chewy Three Ingredient Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are the perfect fix!
Who doesn’t love the idea of a cookie for breakfast? These breakfast cookies are different than your average cookie though! They are healthy! They are also gluten-free and nut free, so they are perfect for those with restricted diets!
The other day, my friend Michelle (also responsible for the amazing Cinnamon Sugar Cheesecake Bars) told me about this life-changing Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie Recipe that she found on Skinny Taste.
I just so happened to have some over ripened bananas sitting on my counter and thought I would give them a try.
Wow…. just wow!! These breakfast cookies will blow you away! They only take 3 ingredients (I added an optional 4th) and only take about 15 minutes to whip up – and you likely have all of the ingredients in your pantry as we speak!!
These breakfast cookies aren’t just for breakfast! They are a very healthy after-school snack for your kids or a quick snack any time of the day! They are soft and chewy and delicious.
I think they are best when they are warm and out of the oven. But, you can also make them ahead and throw them in the toaster oven for a minute and they are soft, chewy and delicious again! (although they are yummy cold too!)
How to make healthy breakfast cookies
To make these easy breakfast cookies, all you need to have on hand are three simple ingredients bananas, uncooked quick oats, and chocolate chips. If you have some cinnamon sugar or peanut butter, those are great add-ins too!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray or line it with a silicone baking mat.
- In a medium bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork or spoon. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips until totally combined.
- Place a teaspoon of the batter on your cookie sheet (I like to press them down slightly with the back of a spoon).
- Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional).
- Bake for 15-18 minutes.
