Breakfast Cookies Recipe

These breakfast cookies make a nice change from the ordinary eggs or cereal.Although these breakfast cookies aren't as nutritious as say, a bowl of oatmeal, they do provide a nice source of fiber, protein and iron. I've tried to balance kids' taste for sweet with moms' interest in giving them a healthy start with this breakfast cookies recipe. If you want to up the nutrition ante on these breakfast cookies, replace the mini chocolate chips with raisins, decrease the sugar to 2/3 of a cup, and use 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana (the riper, the better)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut ****er
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash banana. With an electric mixer, beat in sugar, peanut ****er, water and egg whites until smooth.
  3. Add flours, baking soda and salt.
  4. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by the quarter-cupful onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat (Compare Prices) or a heavy, ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 14-18 minutes until golden brown on top and set.
