Mornings can be hard. Whether you’re getting kids out the door or just getting yourself into work, eating a healthy breakfast can sometimes be a challenge. These healthy breakfast cookies made from a base of bananas and oats and are the perfect solution for those busy mornings. Just make a big batch on Sunday and have them ready to pack in baggies for the kids to bring on the bus or to take in your car. Easy, healthy, filling, the whole family will love them!

*White whole wheat flour is milled from whole white wheat rather than “red” wheat, which makes it lighter in color and less dense/bitter in flavor. Yet it’s got the same nutritional value of regular whole wheat flour, which we love!

    Fixed these this morning. The picture of the cookie and the ingredients sounded great. But unfortunately they weren't. Too doughy in the middle. Had to cook them for 20 minutes minimum at 375 degrees and they still weren't done. Such a disappointment.

      Hi Judi - so sorry to hear that! We've made them several times and they turn out great! I wonder if you made any substitutions?
