Healthy Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are the best way to start your day. They’re easy to make & packed with simple ingredients, healthy fats + protein.
Happy Sunday my friends! I hope you had the BEST Thanksgiving! I know I did. I ate SO much delicious food, laughed with my family, and got to spend time with friends… talk about a perfect weekend! Unfortunately, Monday is so soon and it’ll be back to reality! (But Christmas is right around the corner!)
Sunday’s have always been my day to ground myself and prepare for the week ahead. Usually my weekend starts out on Saturday by writing a giant to do list. Whether it’s cleaning the apartment, going grocery shopping, doing laundry… anything I have to do goes on the list. Then throughout the day I’ll check it off. Call me crazy, but I get so much satisfaction getting in bed Sunday night and being able to see all the things I’ve done!
One thing that I can’t not do on Sunday is meal prep. It’s pretty much engrained in my routine, and I just feel weird if I don’t do it. It helps me get ahead of the week + make the best possible choices for all of my meals. I save money because eating out isn’t an option when I have everything all ready + waiting in my fridge! Annnnnd since I make extra – lunch is always prepared too! Win win.
On Saturdays I plan out the week’s meals, go to the grocery store + get all the ingredients so that Sunday I can prep everything! (P.S… if you want to find out what we make each week, join our email list! You can sign up in the right hand column right under our picture!) In addition to my meals, I also prep one thing for breakfast that I eat throughout the week. Usually it’s something like this Pumpkin Cranberry Baked Oatmeal or these Healthy Lemon Chia Seed Muffins. But this week… It’s these Healthy Banana Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies!
They’re the ultimate breakfast to prep. Don’t get me wrong… I love making my oatmeal in the mornings.. but cleaning the pan and getting involved with waiting for it to cook nicely… who really wants to do that when you’re half asleep? Not me. These cookies are basically portable oatmeal that couldn’t be easier to make. They’re packed with seeds for healthy fats, collagen peptides for a little nutrient boost, and carbs to get you fueled + ready to go for the day… Basically they’re a breakfast powerhouse.
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1½ cup oats
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- ½ tablespoon flaxseed meal
- 4 tablespoons collagen peptides
- 3 tablespoons mini chips
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl + allow it to sit for 5 minutes (the chia seeds will start to bind + make the batter thick)
- Scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough and form into shape of a cookie. Make sure to press the cookies down flat. (Because these cookies do not have any baking powder/soda or flour, they do not rise or expand. The cookies will stay whatever shape you bake them at)
- Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until cookies are a light brown on the edges.
Things we used in this recipe: oats, coconut oil, cinnamon, chia seeds, flax seed meal, Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips, Vital Proteins Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides
Do you typically prep your breakfasts? If you do what do you like to make? Baked oatmeal + these cookies are usually my go tos, but I’m always looking for new ideas!
