Building The Breakfast Cookie

Six Steps To Building Yourself…

The Breakfast Cookie

1. Mash and smash one super sweet, medium-large banana.

2. Add 1/2 cup of uncooked old fashioned oats and your favorite spices.

(I usually add 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves and 1/2 tsp cinnamon)

3. Add 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa.

This is important if you’re like me and live for all things chocolate.

4. Add 1 Tbsp. chunky peanut butter and a tsp of your favorite jam.

(Raspberry, you know, goes very well with the whole chocolate thing you’ve got going on. ย Just sayin’.)

5. Smash, smash, smash everything together.

6. Roll out 4 portions in the palm of your hand, just as you would a meatball.

Top each cookie with an almond.

Sprinkle a pinch of coconut.

Serve with milk and enjoy each delightful bite.

If the mixture is too soft: Add wheat germ or wheat bran or crushed flax.

If the mixture is too firm: Add a Tbsp. or so of milk.

QUESTION: What are you eating for breakfast?

  1. For the day that’s in it I’ve had a full Irish breakfast! It’s definitely not something you can eat all the time, but for Christmas and St Patrick’s Day, it’s essential!!

  2. I’m trying that this weekend!!! I’ve been dying to try the breakfast cookie, and I like this mini version best. I’ll let you know how I like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. These look great! I will admit that I probably wouldn’t roll them into balls, but would just mash it up and eat it. I might even add some soymilk to thin it out a bit, and make it like a breakfast, pie filling oatmeal sorta concoction.

    I use a food diary so I might tweak it a bit, but it sounds really great!
