These delicious, wholesome Roasted Banana Breakfast Cookies are the perfect food to start your morning off right! Refined sugar free, these cookies are sweetened with roasted bananas and are soft, moist and incredibly scrumptious!
Ingredients
  • 4 roasted bananas
  • 2 cups large flake oats, gluten-free certified
  • ¾ cup coconut milk (we use Silk)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup pepitas
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup enjoy life mini chips
Instructions
Roasting the Bananas
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Place whole bananas (with the skin on) onto a parchment lined baking tray and roast for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
The Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Place peeled, roasted bananas into a large mixing bowl and mash. Add oats, baking powder, pepitas, cranberries, nutmeg and mini chips. Stir until mixed.
  3. Add coconut milk to dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop cookies onto a parchment lined cookie tray. Using a fork, flatten the top of each cookie.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, removed from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Notes
While there is no refined sugar used in this recipe, the Enjoy Life Mini Chips do contain brown sugar. If you're trying to avoid refined sugars, I would suggest leaving these out. Cacao nibs would make a delicious swap in place of the mini chips.

Prep time does not include the necessary time to cool the roasted bananas.

Storage: These cookies will keep for up to a week in an air-tight container, stored in the fridge. Don't worry thought, I'm sure they'll be gobbled up before the week's over!
