I’m heading to Boston next week for a 5 day vacation. I literally cannot wait! I’ll be visiting my good friends from Australia; we’ve kept in close contact over the years and try and visit every so often.

Boston has great weather this time of year, too! I’m excited to check out some restaurants and explore a bit so definitely let me know if you have any suggestions!

I also have a new obsession to share: Banana bread breakfast cookies. Normally I would say regular cookies, but since these taste like banana bread AND oatmeal, I’m really quite in love. And when chocolate chips are thrown in the mix? OMG!

Plus they only take 15 minutes to make and clock in at around 60 calories per cookie. YES!

This really isn’t even a recipe. It’s me telling you to mix two things together for sweet satisfaction that you don’t have to feel guilty about.

For reals. No weird processed ingredients from a box. Just all natural stuff.

Dairy free. Gluten Free (use GF oats). Nut free. Vegan. Vegetarian. I think they’re a good breakfast (or healthy treat!) for whoever you are. That is unless you’re allergic to bananas or oats. Sorry!

The possibilities are endless with these little bites! Try adding in some of the following to make it your own:

  • vanilla extract
  • vanilla beans
  • chocolate chips
  • peanut butter chips
  • peanut butter
  • nutella
  • butterscotch
  • dried cranberries
  • raisins
  • chopped walnuts, almond or pecans
  • coconut flakes
  • cocoa nibs

Hope you enjoy a cookie or two for breakfast! xoxo

Banana and oats bake together to make easy breakfast cookies that tasty like banana bread!
Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place oats in blender or food processor and blend until oats become the consistency of flour; it's okay if it's not perfectly ground.
  3. In large bowl combined mashed banana with oats until smooth. Add in 1/2 cup of your favorite add in; I used dark chocolate chips and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  4. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray. Drop dough by large tablespoons onto cookie sheet; flatten a bit with a rubber spatula. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until cookies are set. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. Cookies will keep in a covered container for a few days, or they can be frozen and reheated. Makes about 16 cookies.
