These yummy breakfast cookie recipes are crazy simple to make, and crazy delicious. My favorite version of the breakfast cookie recipe is one of the simplest to toss together. All you need are 2 ripe bananas, 1 cup of oats and 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts. The kids love to help mix these cookies up and especially love the fact that they can eat them almost any time since they’re so healthy. These cookie recipes are naturally vegan and, if you use gluten-free certified oats, also gluten free.
