Banana Breakfast Cookies
Before I give you the recipe for these banana breakfast cookies, I have a confession to make. For the longest time, I couldn’t stand bananas and I’m not just talking about the taste. The smell of them made me gag. I can remember doing my student teaching in my early 20’s and a first grader asked me to peel their banana. I had to walk away. I just couldn’t stomach it. Even when my girls first starting eating solid foods, I hated giving them bananas because they just grossed me out. Now at 35, I’ve finally come to like bananas and I would honestly eat one of these cookies every morning if they’d last that long.
The reason I love these banana breakfast cookies so much is that I know I’m eating something healthy. My five year old went to gymnastics the other day and told her instructors how I was eating cookies for breakfast. He proceeded to tell her that cookies were not a very healthy choice and she adamantly listed off the ingredients to which he had nothing to say. These cookies are just so much more than a cookie with peanut butter, maple agave and chia seeds there’s just so many great flavors all in one.
