Breakfast Cookies for MOM

With a little bit of help from a big person, this is mainly a job for the littles in the family! Some easy measuring and a lot of fun mixing, mashing and dolloping, these fun breakfast cookies are exactly what mom wants to nosh on for her Mother's Day Breakfast.



  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 2 1/2 cups whole rolled oats (not instant)
  • 2 tablespoons almond or peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (or to taste)
  • Pinch of salt (optional)


Pre-heat your oven to 350-F

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Peel the bananas and add them to a large mixing bowl. Mash them with a fork.

Add the rest of the ingredients and with your hands (I use food-grade gloves during this time, just a personal preference), mash, fold and mix the ingredients very well together. This is a great job for the little people in your family!

Using a spoon, scoop large dollops of the mixture on to the pan and put a little divot in the center with your pinkie finger so they thoroughly warm through.

Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Yields approx 12 cookies.
