Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Who says you can't have cookies for breakfast? These delicious treats beat a donut, muffin, or greasy hash browns any day.

Peanut Butter ~ Oatmeal ~ Chocolate Chip
Breakfast Cookies


2 Ripe Bananas, Mashed
3/4 C. Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/2 C. Applesauce (unsweetened)
1/4 C. Maple Syrup
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
Dash of Ground Cloves
Dash of Ground Nutmeg
Pinch of Salt
1 1/2 C. Quick or Old Fashioned Oats
3/4 C. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 C. Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silpart or parchment paper and set aside. Mix together the bananas, peanut butter, applesauce, maple syrup, vanilla, and spices. Add in the oats, chocolate chips, and coconut; stir until well combined.
Scoop 2" rounds of the cookie mixture onto the baking sheet, placing a few more chocolate chips on top of each cookie. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool slightly on cooling rack. Enjoy!

Note: You can substitute by using almond butter instead of peanut butter.
Other ingredients that would be fun to add include: raisins, walnut, or even shredded zucchini. Ooohhhh, maybe I'll try the zucchini next time now that sounds delish!
