I did a pretty good job with my weekly goals yesterday. I worked out in the morning, did some cleaning and organizing. I didn’t get to social media as much as I would have liked but that is only because I was busy with cleaning and organizing.

Here are some of my new favorite breakfasts recipes.

 

Peanut Butter Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies


 

 

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter ~ creamy or chunky
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder ** (can be made without, cookie will just be lower in protein)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp butter flavor extract ** (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oatmeal ~ uncooked (or use old fashioned oats for more oatmeal texture)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (peanut, walnut, or your favorite)
  • 1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips (**optional)


Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix mashed banana & peanut butter until completely combined then add in the applesauce, vanilla protein powder & the extract(s) ~ mix again until all are completely combined.

Add in the oatmeal & nuts to the banana mixture & combine. (** add the optional carob / chocolate chips at this time if you want them mixed throughout)

Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet & flatten cookies into circles. (** if you just want the carob / chocolate chips on the top of the cookies, add now)

Bake cookies approx. 20-30 minutes (some like their cookies less cooked, some cooked more - try it both ways to find which works best for your tastes) or until golden brown & done. Remove from oven & let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack. (if you want the traditional fork tong marks on the cookies, use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to score the tops of the cookies while they're still warm)

When cookies are completely cool, store in a covered container. Enjoy!
