Happy Recipe Redux Day!

Today, I’m sharing these delicious and filling breakfast cookies with you as part of the Recipe Redux monthly challenge.  Here is the theme for February: Break Out of Breakfast Boredom

Cooks aren’t always pressed for time in the mornings – they just need new ideas. Think mug cakes, smoothie bowls, breakfast cookies and more. Show us the healthy way you wake up your breakfast – or wake up just for breakfast!

Delicious right?

When I first read the theme for this month, I was overwhelmed with ideas.  Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day and I know there are so many things that can be done to make this early meal a bit easier to get in during the week.

Should I make something fun and delicious or an easy grab and go week day nosh?

I opted for both!

You see, I’ve converted Brian into a breakfast person but I’ll be honest…he rarely makes it for himself and during the week it needs to be something made in a larger batch during meal prep on the weekend so that he can easily throw it into his lunch box to take to school to eat after our morning workout.

I wanted to make something new for him that was delicious and fun for me to create!  These cookies were it.

The cookies are made with rolled oats and oat flour and the “glue” that holds these babies together is a combination of nut butter, maple syrup, and mashed ripe bananas.  That means there is absolutely no refined sugar or flour in the babies, they are packed with energy-rich ingredients, plant-based protein, whole grains, and a bit of fruit (in the blueberries!).

While I clearly thought they tasted wonderful, Brian also couldn’t stop raving about the flavor combo.

Let me know if you give these a try! You won’t be disappointed 🙂

    • I would think that they would work, but I haven’t tried them. If you do try, please let me know and I’ll include the notes in the recipe! Thanks, Courtney!

  1. Love how you took the classic 3-ingredient cookie recipe and TOTALLY beefed it up with lots of good nutrition. My kids will LOVE these…and I’ll love having a use for the hemp seeds in my pantry!
