The kids have been asking for some new breakfast recipes to add to some of their everyday favorites. I like to keep things homemade. So coming up with a variety of options that are also time friendly can be challenging at times. So when I tried whipping up these Peanut Butter & Banana Breakfast Cookies in just a couple minutes – I was thrilled. They are soft & moist & packed full of heartiness to keep the kids full through the morning.
I love that these are simple enough that the kids could actually make them on their own. Just whip up the batter – NO EGGS & bake for a few minutes. The batter looks like very little in the bowl but ends up making about 15-16 cookies. That works out great when you have 3 very hungry teens just waiting to get their hands on these. They are the perfect thing to use up those over ripe bananas too. However – you don’t have to wait for them to get past their prime. I made these with a green banana & they still turned out great.
