Healthy Protein-Packed Breakfast Cookies

Pin It
Chris is still on the hunt for something low-calorie, substantial and portable, yet flavorful, that he can take to work for breakfast in the morning. He's gone through the typical smoothie, oatmeal, fruit and yogurt, but none of those peak his interest anymore. That's where these cookies came from.
I know cookies are probably the last thing you think of when thinking of breakfast items. Until now. These are jam-packed with tons of protein and good-for-you fillers that will fuel you and curb your appetite. Feel free to switch up the nuts, seeds and dried fruit to suit your preference. The recipe below is mainly a guide, but these can be transformed into anything you want! Enjoy!

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease two baking sheets and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, oil and agave. Stir in banana. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Drop the dough in 2 tbsp. rounds onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten with wet fingers and shape into circles. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are brown. Let cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes then transfer to a baking rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
