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.

Banana & Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

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.
