Cookies for breakfast

7 Feb

These are “healthy” cookies. My twins like to feed themselves so I’ve been trying to come up with easy nourishing foods for them to experiment with.

Ingredients:

2 cups quick or old fashioned oats

1/2 cup whole wheat or gluten free flour

2 Tbs Nutritional Yeast (optional- I wanted a protein bump)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 ripe bananas mashed

1/2 cup applesauce

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Drizzle of honey- probably 2 tablespoons

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2 cookie sheets.

Combine dry ingredients except oats, set aside. Combine wet ingredients, add dry to wet, mix and add oats. The batter will be pretty wet.

Drop spoonfuls of batter onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for 14 minutes or so. Do not over bake. The cookies will be moist, spongy and vaguely cake like.

cranberries, raisins, coconut, nuts, all those would be good additions! In my opinion, they needed more “sweet” but since they are for my toddlers I’ll leave it as is. I’m sure this could be tweaked to be better, but for my first attempt they were pretty awesome!
