Peanut Butter and Jelly Banana Breakfast Cookie

Let’s be honest.  The idea of eating cookies for breakfast pretty much sounds amazing, right?  Take my word for it.  It is amazing.  For the past couple of weeks I have been enjoying my Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie.  Pumpkin is all the rage right now, after all.  Hopefully pumpkin will be okay with sharing the spotlight, though, because this new breakfast cookie sure is tasty!

Servings: Makes one cookie

Ingredients

1/2 ripe banana, mashed
2/3 cup whole rolled oats
1 TB peanut flour (I used PB2)
1 tsp chia seeds (I used the milled variety)
1 packet of natural sweetener (I used Stevia) or sugar
1/8 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 to 3 TB grape jelly (or whichever variety you prefer)

For topping:

1/2 ripe banana, sliced
peanut butter + cinnamon
raisins (or your other favorite dried fruit)

Directions

1. Combine mashed banana, oats, peanut flour, chia seeds, sweetener, and almond milk.  Mix well.

2. Heat jelly in microwave for approximately 20 seconds, or until it is slightly melted.  Stir the jelly into the oat mixture.

3. Spoon the oat mixture onto a plate and flatten into the shape of a cookie.  Cover the plate with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

4. In the morning, top the breakfast cookie with banana slices, the peanut butter and cinnamon mixture, and raisins.

I hope you enjoy it as much as the Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie!  They are both keepers!

Finally, for the heads up, I am (hopefully) finally making the switch over to being self-hosted over the next week or so, so I apologize ahead of time if my blog is acting funky during all of that!

  1. I have made cookies like this before- so good. It is basically the same as when I make a bowl of oatmeal just in cookie form. My son loves it. Good luck with the switch to self-hosting – I am still trying to navigate myself around the self-host world lol.

  2. Oh yesssss
