Banana Breakfast Cookies

Published on Wednesday, December 07, 2022 by Caitlin Riley

A grab-and-go breakfast can be a game-changer!

We all know those mornings when everyone is in a rush and you can barely get out the door on time, never mind sitting down to a hot breakfast. 

Enter my banana breakfast cookies for a filling and healthy fast breakfast. 

Like many of my recipes, you can customize these any way you like by adding mix-ins.

I will occasionally add mini chocolate chips for a sweeter cookie, but my favorite is to add finely chopped walnuts and raisinsThese banana breakfast cookies are also a great way to use all those bananas on your counter that are about to go bad. Pro Tip: The riper/brown the banana- the better! The brown spots mean that the banana will be sweet and concentrated in flavor.

These breakfast cookies are GERD and IBS-friendly as well as gluten and dairy free.

I hope you give them a try!
