These Healthy Banana Breakfast Cookies are the perfect breakfast for meal prepping.
They’re made with wholesome ingredients like oats, ripe bananas and chia seeds while also having a chocolate chips for a little sweetness.
These breakfast cookies only take 25 minutes to make store great in the refrigerator or freezer. You can even easily make the cookies without chocolate chips to cut back on the sugar. (Although, who doesn’t love a little chocolate?!)
One of the things many people struggle with is getting a healthy breakfast in on busy mornings. So many people reach for unhealthy grab and go items in the morning.
I find that when I take a few minutes on a Sunday night to prep something for myself, then I am set up for the week and don’t need to think about my breakfast!
I love meal prepping these banana breakfast cookies! Sometimes I will even make a double batch of them. I like to let them cool completely and put half of them in the fridge in a container, and half of them in the freezer for future mornings.
Rather than wondering how you’re going to fuel yourself for the day, you can quickly grab one of these nutritious cookies from your fridge or freezer, pop it in the microwave + enjoy with a cup of coffee.
I used to prep baked oatmeal all the time, and while I enjoy having my healthy blueberry baked oatmeal or chocolate peanut butter baked oatmeal for breakfast, these cookies are even better for enjoying on the go.
They’re perfectly portable, and taste amazing! Plus, you only need a few ingredients to make them!
How to make banana breakfast cookies:
These breakfast cookies are packed with seeds for healthy fats, collagen peptides for a little protein boost, and carbs to get you fueled + ready to go for the day. They’re basically a breakfast powerhouse.
Substitutions for this banana breakfast recipe:
- Collagen- You can omit the collagen peptides from this recipe if you’d like. They add a little bit more protein so I always add them in. I haven’t tried substituting protein powder for the collagen peptides but that might also work
- Oil – You can use olive or avocado oil in place of coconut oil
- Chocolate chips – You can omit chocolate chips and add in dried fruit or nuts if you’d prefer
