gf cookies for breakfast {recipe}

My dad has been known to eat cookies, pasta, pizza and even hamburgers for breakfast. Some of his genes were passed down to me {lucky lady} and I, too, like cold pizza and cookies for breakfast. Nowadays, I try to ‘healthify’ my eating habits {most of the time} and make healthy versions of the refined sugary foods I love for my family and me. Don’t get me wrong, I still can’t say no to a chocolate donut when presented with the opportunity to devour. These Breakfast Cookies are delicious and I don’t need to feel guilty having one or two, or four of these babies for breakfast.

Breakfast Cookie
recipe adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction
makes 15-20 cookies

Ingredients
2 cups gf quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup almond butter
1 large banana, mashed
1/2 raw and shelled pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or raisins {I made with the chocolate}

Bake it, girl
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips or raisins in a medium bowl and use a mixer to blend well.
Add the chips or raisins and stir.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Grab a very large tablespoon size dough and place on cookie sheet. The cookies will not spread, so shape dough like an already cooked cookie.
Bake  at 325 degrees for 16 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.

These are healthy and nutritious, and these moms {us} are giving you and your kids permission to indulge in cookies for breakfast!
