Breakfast at my house can be crazy. The bus comes pretty early for my taste and I do not always have the wherewithal to make much more than toast. I found this recipe for banana oat breakfast cookies and thought that it might be a great to get a little more nutrition into my babes before I send them off to start their day. Full of bananas, whole grains, and protein, are a great way to start the day. I added some chocolate chips because I knew that I might have a better chance of the kids trying them. Feel free to leave them out.

What You Need to Know About Bananas //

  • Bananas are nature’s energy bar – Bananas are portable and easy to digest. Chock full of fiber, potassium, manganese, vitamin B6 and vitamin C, they are proven to pack the same punch as expensive sports drinks.
  • Bananas come is more varieties than just yellow. I never knew that there were different types of bananas. Red bananas are fruity with subtle raspberry and apple flavor.
