Recipe: Breakfast Cookies

I was up early this morning and looking around on Pinterest and discovered this Breakfast Cookie pin.  I decided immediately that I wanted to make these today and quickly wrote down the ingredients and directions and headed to the kitchen to whip them together.  I knew they would be the perfect breakfast post run.  Unfortunately, the pin doesn’t link to the original source :(

Breakfast Cookies
Original Source Unknown

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of oats
  • 2-3 ripened bananas
  • 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • handful of craisins
  • dash of cinnamon

Directions

  1. Mash the bananas in a bowl.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and combine well. 
  2. Spoon onto a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

*I didn’t have craisins so I used raisins.  I only used 2 bananas; one really ripe, one not so much.
*I suggest lining your baking sheet with parchment paper or using a silicone baking mat – my cookies stuck to my cookie sheet.

Not only were these super easy but they come together really quickly with minimal dishes. 
BONUS --- they are super yummy and #healthyonabudget
