To get you ready for the weekend and prepare a treat for next week, I am sharing this delicious Breakfast Cookie recipe as a guest blog post from Dr. Robin’s Corner! Enjoy!
Sometimes, the trickiest part of changing our diet is figuring out EASY recipes that fulfill the new way of eating. This is certainly tricky at breakfast, when most of us are used to a bowl of cereal, some toast, maybe pancakes, french toast, or waffles…all those foods are FILLED with gluten and sugar!
Enter the breakfast cookie to save the morning!
These take 5 minutes to mix up, and 12 minutes to bake. On a Sunday afternoon, my kitchen is always full of new ingredients I want to add in to the basic recipe. They taste like banana bread meets a granola bar (if you add that stuff), and are truly filling!
This recipe makes 8-12 cookies (depending on your scoop) and has NO added sugar, NO grain, and NO dairy. The cookies will be soft after baking, and should be stored in the fridge for the week (if they last that long).
“Paleo” Breakfast Cookies:
2 bananas (ripe, peeled, broken into pieces)
3 Medjool dates (pitted, halved)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add-ins: 1/2 cup nut of your choice (walnuts, almonds, and cashews are all wonderful), 1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit), 1/4 cup naturally sweetened chocolate chips, 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut.
Pre-heat oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend up! Add in 2-3 of the “add-in”s and stir well. Plop big spoonfuls onto your baking sheet (I get 8 good cookies from this recipe), and bake for 12-15 minutes. They will be soft, so use a toothpick in the center to make sure they are cooked. Allow to cool, and enjoy!
I eat mine slathered with peanut butter (or another nut butter), and I stay full until lunchtime. Also wonderful as dessert! No one will know they are full of protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
Thank you to Dr. Robin for sharing this yummy treat!
