I don't know about you but I can only have so many scrambled eggs during the week. Time for something new, and something that can be prepped ahead of time...banana oatmeal breakfast cookies!
I tried to make them as healthy as I could I promise. No dairy, gluten-free, and only one egg! Plus, just a little honey and maple syrup are added to sweeten them up.
I may have also used a hefty cup of raisins and cranberries to add a little oomph slash deliciousness to these banana oatmeal breakfast cookies, but you can add or more less depending on your personal taste. You can even nix them entirely if you're not into dried fruit!
I like to make a batch of these on Sundays and have them as quick on the go breakfast or even as that awkward 3:00 pm snack. You know that time where you're starting to regret eating your entire lunch at 11 am and now you have to make it till dinner? These cookies are perfect for that. Just a little bite to tide you over!
