Guilt Free Pumpkin Banana Chip Cookies

Cookies for BREAKFAST? Don't worry, I said it was ok ;) I love that I don't have to feel guilty when I pop...ohhhh, I don't know...maybe three or four of these in my mouth.

This recipe was originally adapted from a "2 ingredient" recipe (just mashed bananas and chopped oats) but since then, I've made MANY variations, all equally delicious. 

They are husband and niece approved and really fun to make with kids! Plus, I can't help feeling a little tricky when I get my niece all excited for cookies and I know they are super healthy. hehe #guilty Emma loved helping me in the kitchen with these, almost as much fun as she had eating them up! How cute is she?? I know...I'm a little biased though. 

Have fun with this recipe and feel free to mix in other ingredients to make it your own!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cups of oats

  • 2 well ripened bananas

  • 1tbs honey

  • 1/2 cup Carob chips

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  1. Preheat the over to 350 degrees.

  2. Dump the oats in a food processor (or chop it up) until it breaks down into smaller pieces. 

  3. Add in all of the ingredients into a mixer & blend well.

  4. If the consistency is too runny (it should be wet, but thick) add in a few dashes of oats until the consistency thickens.

  5. Spoon out a tablespoon sized dollop on a greased cookie sheet and flatten out/form the cookies (they won't rise, they'll bake as is.)

  6. Pop in the oven for 20 minutes & enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.
