Healthy Breakfast Bars/Cookies
2 mashed browning bananas
1/4 cup unsweetened, organic applesauce
1/2 cup nut butter of your choice
1.5 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp agave
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
We added flax seeds, hemp seeds and goji berries but you can throw in any number of ingredients! Try chocolate chips, walnuts, dried cranberries, fresh blueberries or chia seeds to change it up.
Mix all dry ingredients together. Mix vanilla, oil, applesauce, agave, bananas and nut butter together separately. Combine all. It should be thick, but you can add a little more applesauce if it’s too difficult to stir.
Drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown (longer for thicker, larger breakfast bars or cookies). We made them round but you can shape them however you like!
And go ahead, eat a few of them. They’re the healthiest cookie out there and are heavy enough to get your through the morning (even with a light workout). Enjoy!
