Cranberry Pecan Banana Breakfast Cookies

2 Apr

Having cookies for breakfast sounds rebellious.

Actually, it is rebellious.

But you can’t REALLY feel bad about being rebellious, at breakfast, eating cookies, when you take a closer look into the ingredient list.

So if anyone asks, you are having cookies for breakfast.

Who really knows what’s in your cookies anyways?

Secrets are just as fun as breakfast cookies.

So join in, be rebellious, and eat cookies for breakfast.

Cranberry Pecan Banana Breakfast Cookies
Makes 4 Large Cookies

Nonstick cooking spray
1 banana, mashed
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon dried cranberries, chopped
9 walnut halves, chopped (any nut would substitute)
sprinkle of cinnamon, to taste


Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Divide mixture evenly into four cookies (a little over 1/4 cup of mixture per cookie)
Bake for 25 minutes, or until brown around the edges.
Eat cookies plain, or take after us and break them over smoothies in a bowl (SIAB) and Greek yogurt!
Each cookie has about 123 calories and 2.5 grams of protein!

Just before going in the oven.

A close up. Just because they look heavenly.

So, what rebellious activities are you engaging in this week? Cookies for breakfast? Smoothies for dinner? We would love to know.
