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!

- ¾ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

- ¼ C Chocolate chips (or more if you like sweets!)
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix all your ingredients together really well.
