Oatmeal Banana Cookies only take a few ingredients, one bowl, and maybe 20 minutes of your time. They make a great addition to breakfast or snack. These are not to take the place of your favorite gooey chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookie, by any means. But they’re an easy project to get the kids involved in the kitchen and have a little extra fiber!
If the kids need a snack for school, these make a great addition to the lunch box as well. I made them for our 20 Energizing Back to School Snacks your Kids will Love blog. But they’re definitely not just for the kids!
So how do I incorporate these cookies into breakfast? Well they are a good source of carbohydrate. So I’ll have a few cookies, and pair it with some protein! Maybe some egg muffins or a Greek yogurt or some turkey sausage. The protein will help keep me full until snack time!
