Healthy Breakfast Cookies. These moist breakfast cookies feature bananas, oats, almond butter, honey and chocolate chips | Five Marigolds
I have a serious sweet tooth in the morning, so I’ve long been on the hunt for sweet breakfast recipes that are healthy’ish AND taste good. It’s been a long journey! After a testing a lot of recipes and coming up short, I’ve finally found something that balances a little of both – it’s super yummy, and the ingredients are in the healthy’ish zone that I can feel good about serving my kids. Rich flavor – with no flour, butter or refined sugar.Another thing I love about these cookies is that they are really satisfying. I’m almost always hungry within 30 minutes of breakfast, but not with these. Ladies and Gentleman: I proudly introduce you to Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies.
I’ll often mix up the dry ingredients before I go to bed, and in the morning just add the banana, nut butter and honey and pop them in the oven. So good! Here is the recipe with my preferred ingredients.

- 2 1/3 C. quick oats
- 3/4 t. salt
- 2 bananas, mashed
- 1 C. nut butter (I prefer almond butter)
- 1/4 C. honey
- 1/3 C. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix all the ingredients together, folding in the chocolate chips at the end.
- Scoop 3 tablespoons per cookie onto a parchment-lined baking sheet – I used my Pampered Chef large scoop to make easy work of this – and gently flatten to the desired shape.
- Bake for 15 minutes and let cool on a baking rack.
Makes around 15 cookies. These stay good for about three days, or can be frozen for later. Be sure to separate cookies with parchment paper in storage.
