Breakfast Cookies from The Blue Zones

I made these easy and healthy breakfast cookies after seeing them in the Blue Zones cookbook HERE, I slightly modified it (no nuts) but you can find the original recipe HERE. They are made with oatmeal, which is a healthy affordable staple and filled with fiber, iron, potassium and B Vitamins.

I really liked these, but felt like the chocolate was too sweet for breakfast (I prefer savory things first thing in the morning) but they made the perfect mid-morning snack. They were easy to make with just a few ingredients you probably have on hand.


3 large ripe bananas

1 3⁄4 cups quick oats (I used gluten-free)

1⁄4 cup chocolate chips (I used the mini chips)

1⁄4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)

1/8 cup honey

Mash the ripe bananas with a fork, and add in all the other ingredients. Drop about one rounded tablespoon per cookie on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 350, remove to rack to cool.
