Healthy breakfast cookies

This breakfast cookie idea came to me one day because I had ripe bananas and I was out of flour. I was also out of things to eat for breakfast the next day so I had to make something up. Basically, it was time for me to go grocery shopping. That being said, I went through my kitchen cabinet and found a bit of this and a bit of that. I put all of it together and TADA! These little breakfast cookies were born.

I love creating stuff from scratch; more specifically, making good healthy food from leftovers. I always had a “problem solver” type of personality. When my fridge is full, there are so many options that I stand up in front of it and I don't know what to do. However, when my fridge is almost empty and I have a little bit of everything left, that is when I enjoy making up stuff. I get to use my creativity the most and play with it. It is like solving problems in a way and putting the pieces of a puzzle together to create something delicious.

Try these cookies and let me know what you think in the comment section below. *Please see the recipe note for a little hint. If you want to share these on Instagram, I would only ask you to tag me (@vic_r.c) so I can see what you came up with.

Thanks & Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

These cookies are at their best when they are warm and fresh from the oven. There is a crunch to it that makes them irresistible. They are also very good cold but the crisp will be missing.
