Breakfast Cookies

What better topic than breakfast for a Saturday morning post? I've been making breakfast cookies just about every day since I came across the recipe on this blog. A "cookie" in shape only, it's actually a really easy and healthy breakfast that tastes like it could be a dessert.

You start by mixing together a mashed banana and the egg whites from one egg. Then add a dash of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of baking powder (that's the only ingredient I measure exactly; everything else is eyeballed), a spoonful of flax seed, some oats, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. Transfer onto a plate, flatten into a cookie shape, microwave for 1:45, and then top with a spoonful of peanut butter. I prepare these the night before, then cook them in the morning right before I leave for work. Between these and my favorite Keurig coffee, I've come to look forward to my homemade breakfasts more than any breakfast I can buy out.
