Coconut Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies
Did we say coconut + chocolate chip cookies for breakfast? YES, yes we did. We are combining two of our fav ingredients into one delicious [+ nutritious] breakfast cookie ++ guess what? We also snuck in a little peanut butter, because everyone knows that PB is a CHAARGie’s best friend : ). Not only are these cookies packed with protein + healthy fats to help you kick-start your morn, but they are also super easy to whip up! Grab one on your way out the door + #BOOM, you’ve got a yummy breakfast that will fill you up + satisfy your sweet tooth! [++ major bonus points — these pair wonderfully with a big ole cup of coffee ; )]
*makes: about 10 -12 cookies [depending on size]
2 ⅓ cup Quick Oats [gluten free if needed]
¾ tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla Extract [optional]
¼ cup Honey [or Pure Maple Syrup]
1 cup Peanut Butter [or your nut butter of choice]
2 large, over-ripe Bananas [mashed]
⅓ cup unsweetened Shredded Coconut
⅓ cup Dark Chocolate Chips [dairy free if needed]
#1] Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined.
#2] Spoon out onto lined baking sheet [parchment paper or pan liners work great!]. These cookies will not spread in the oven, so form ‘em how you want ‘em [ours were about 3 inches in diameter].
#3] Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes [or until the edges start to brown], then let cool + DEVOUR!
Store them in a sealed container at room temp for about a week, or throw some in the freezer to have on hand for busy weeks!
