Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Monday through Friday I typically eat the same things because it is easy to transport to and eat at work.  It consists of hard boiled eggs and fruit or Greek yogurt, nuts, and fruit.  But not going to lie, I sometimes get sick of eating the same thing day after day and week after week.  So, I searched for a healthy, portable, and meal-prep friendly breakfast that I could make and take.  I found these breakfasts cookies with just a few ingredients.  I made a batch on Sunday night and they carried me through the week and even ended up as a mid-day, pre or post-workout snack.  You can always freeze and take one out the night before.  Then, you don’t have to eat the entire batch and the freezer keeps the cookies fresh. Try the below recipe!  If you want some added protein, you can top the cookie with some more nut butter of your choice!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 Banana

1/4 Cup Peanut Butter, or nut butter of choice

1/2 TSP Vanilla Extract

1/2 TSP Cinnamon

1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts, or nuts of choice

1/4 Cup Chopped Dates

Pinch of salt

2-3 TBSP Chocolate Chips

Optional:  1 TSP Turmeric
