Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookie
If you are not the kind of person who has time in the morning for a large breakfast, but you want to make sure you and your kids have something to eat before heading out the door, try this recipe. The Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookie recipe requires simple, wholesome ingredients that are good for you. The cookies have a fantastic banana taste with a slight crunch that comes from the walnuts added to the cookie batter. They are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast to have when you want to feel full and energized until it is time for lunch.
The Ingredients Needed to Make the Banana Breakfast Cookie
You can make the cookies with the following essential ingredients:
- Old-Fashioned Oats. Buy any brand of old-fashioned oats to use when preparing these cookies.
- Ground Cinnamon. Give your cookies a naturally great taste by adding cinnamon into the mix.
- Bananas. You will need two ripe bananas mashed into pieces to add to your cookie batter.
- Maple Syrup. Use maple syrup to bring an added sweetness to the cookies.
- Vanilla. A hint of vanilla pairs perfectly with the flavors of cinnamon and sweet maple syrup.
You will also need baking soda, melted butter, ground nutmeg, salt, flax, an egg, and some chopped walnuts.
Can I Replace the Walnuts With Other Nuts?
If you do not like walnuts, you can leave them out! If you would like to replace them with other nuts, consider using chopped pecans or peanuts, both of which will provide that added crunch and flavor to the cookies.
How Many Servings Does the Recipe Make?

What Other Ingredients Can I Add to the Cookies?
While these cookies taste great the way they are, you can add a chocolate touch to them if you are a chocolate lover. When combining your ingredients, such as the mashed banana and oats, you can toss some mini chocolate chip morsels into the cookie batter. The chocolate will add a great touch to these flavorful, sweet cookies.
How Do I Store the Cookies to Save Them?
Give these cookies time to cool down on a wire rack before you attempt to store them. Once they are no longer hot, you can place them in a large food storage container, separating rows of the cookies with parchment paper. Place a lid on the container and leave them on the kitchen table for up to three days. You can place them in the fridge to keep them fresh for up to five days. If you keep the cookies in the fridge, consider heating them in the microwave for a few seconds to enjoy them while hot and fresh.
