Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies
So my co-workers, friends, and a few of you had asked about my transition from whole30 and what's my plan? To be honest, I don't have a plan per say, I will eat everything like before but be more mindful of my choices. For the next couple of weeks I see myself eating more plant-based meals because I am kind of sick of eating meat.
I won't trick you by saying these Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies are the softest, yummiest cookies ever. No, these just aren't but I am confident that you will love them for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. It taste like banana bread, there is a slight crunch from sunflower seeds and walnuts. Dark chocolate makes everything better..if you know what I mean. The texture is a cross between a cookie and a chewy granola bar. And did I tell you it requires only one bowl and 30 minutes total.
Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies (recipe from here) makes one dozen
Ingredients 2 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed 2 cup old-fashioned oats (oat flour should work too) 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips 2 oz dark chocolate, chopped 2 tablespoon sunflower seeds Cooking spray or little coconut oil to grease the pan
Directions -Preheat the oven to 350F. -If using old-fashioned oats, grind them together in a food processor until it resembles coarse flour. -Combine everything in a large bowl until everything mixes well. -Grease the baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or use cooking spray) with coconut oil and drop the batter into the sheet using a large spoon (about a tablespoon). Flatten it a little bit using the back of the spoon. -Bake it for 12-15 minutes. -Remove from the oven and let it cool down before eating. I kept mine inside a refrigerator and it taste amazing even after two days. The recipe is just a guideline but you can swap any other nuts and seeds of your choice and even add dried fruits. Happy Wednesday!
