Morning Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

My morning oatmeal isn't your typical bland bowl of oats.  Most times I like to fancy it up a bit.  I always add bananas but sometimes I'll add Biscoff spread or mini chocolate chips or if I'm feeling sassy, both.

These babies were inspired by the sassy days...



Morning Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
(Makes 34)



3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups oats (regular or quick cook)
1 medium ripe banana, mashed (no lumps)
1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup Trader Joe's organic maple sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick Blue Bonnet margarine, softened
6 tbsp Biscoff Crunchy Spread
1/2 cup Nestle mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350, grease cookie sheets with cooking spray or use silpats.

Combine butter and sugars until fluffy.


Add vanilla, banana, Biscoff spread and chips.


Blend until combined.




Add flour, baking soda and oats and mix well.


Chill dough for 15 minutes.


Drop by rounded tablespoon on the cookie sheet about 2" apart.


Bake for 8-10 minutes.


Cool for 5-7 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

See that glossy sheen?  That's what you want.  Yum!


Now obviously you can't substitute these for a bowl of oatmeal calorie wise but they'll make one heck of an addition to your Fall/Winter baking rotation!

  1. Those look yummy. I always love your cookie recipes.

    At school they serve "breakfast cookies" every so often. My best guess would be about 300-400 calories each, but so yummy. Oatmeal based, molasses, always some kind of fruit, chewey, warm deliciousness. I always like breakfast cookie day.

  6. I'm always on the lookout for a portable breakfast.....but not a banana fan. Do you taste the bananas?

  7. You know, I do not like oatmeal itself, like in the "breakfast state", but I absolutely love oatmeal cookies. Your recipe is one I'd be willing to try because the outcome is just beautiful. I could practically taste these through the screen!
