Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Breakfast Cookies

Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Breakfast Cookies

Watch the video for this recipe:

Ever since my girls started kindergarten I am trying to come up with quick breakfast ideas. These are probably one of the healthiest breakfast cookies you can ever get as they are full of nutrients.  I gathered a lot of healthy ingredients like cereals, walnuts, raisins, seeds, banana, yogurt and eggs.


These oatmeal banana chocolate breakfast cookies are really delicious, flavorful and have a great texture. This recipe uses no butter but used some coconut oil instead, which is known to have a lot of healthy benefits.


Oatmeal banana chocolate breakfast cookies are not too sweet, I used a small amount of brown sugar and mostly let the raisins, banana and chocolate to work as sweetener. You can replace sugar anytime with any other sweetener like agave nectar, honey, Stevie etc. if that suits you better.


You can make these breakfast cookies one day in advance and have them ready for the next morning. As I added chocolate chunks my daughters simply loved them all day round. I would say it's one of the best snacks over the day and on the road. I like to serve them alongside a cup of milk or some yogurt or simply as they are.

Hello. I was wondering, is it okay to remove nuts from this recipe? My brother is allergic to nuts so I would like to try this without nuts, if possible?

Hi Ryan.

Yes, you can leave nuts out.

Never tried carrots in this recipe, might work.
