Cookies...for breakfast! Is this real life?! I've always *thought* about having cookies for breakfast, but I never actually have done that. Okay, maybe a few times I have. But how great would to be to eat cookies for breakfast and feel really good about it? Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies make that possible!
Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are filled with peanut butter, oats, dried cherries and pecans, and slightly sweetened with honey! They are super delicious, healthy, and the ultimate grab and go breakfast item!
These cookies are really easy to whip up. To start, mix together the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, egg, mashed banana, cinnamon, and salt. Once this is a uniform consistency, fold in the oats, dried cherries, and chopped pecans. Form into large cookies about ¼ cup in size, and bake for about 12 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
Yes! As long as your child is old enough to eat the consistency of a cookie and able to have honey (so older than 1 year old, these are great for kids! My kids love having these for breakfast because they think they're getting a treat for breakfast. Only I know they're also getting some whole grains, protein, and nutrients, too!
If you use gluten free oats, then yes they are gluten free! The rest of the ingredients are all naturally gluten free.
