Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
These breakfast "cookies" have become a staple in our house. I make them 3-4 times per week because they get devoured pretty quickly. They are a great sort of grab and go breakfast for those busy mornings, but also great to have as an afternoon treat with a nice cup of tea.
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground Ceylon cinnamon (it is milder than Cassia)
1/8 tsp. of kosher salt
2 Tbsp. of maple syrup
1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand are vegan)
1 1/2 cups of old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts
Preheat oven to 385. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Next, add the vanilla, cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined. Place large spoonfuls on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten them into patties with the back of your spoon. Bake them for 25-30 minutes (until the edges have browned a bit). Enjoy!
