Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast cookies

If you are anything like me then you could eat sweets for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, before bed snack, dessert…pretty much anytime of the day! I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know and I’m proud of it. 😉 I always carry a sweet snack with me in my purse when I run around and do errands and I often have some sort of sweet treat in the house for after dinner. In fact, there is a stash of fruit snacks in the glove compartment in my car. I think my favorite sweet treat is some sort of chocolate, but I am not bias and will eat anything with tons of sugar in it haha! I have tried in the past to trick myself into thinking key lime pie yogurt is a dessert…but that didn’t last long, and I try to eat fruit more often for dessert but I always find myself wanting to dip my fruit in some sort of melted chocolate!! I know I have a sweet addiction, but I don’t want you to think I over-do it every day on the sweets. Like I said, I often eat fruit for my sweet tooth cravings and if I do eat more than one sweet treat a day, I eat a small amount of it. I came up with this somewhat healthier alternative to a sweet cookie for breakfast. Jesse loves them and believe me, he would choose savory over sweet any day, so that is a testament to how great these little puppies are! I just call them Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies. They come together really quick and they are a great grab and go breakfast. Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ C of oats (I used the quick oats kind)
  • ¾ tsp. salt
