Healthy Breakfast Cookies

What does your family like to eat for breakfast?

Almost every morning I struggle to find a healthy breakfast that my kids will actually eat. My son wants chocolate-chip pancakes every day, and my daughter wants a bagel and cream cheese.

One morning, my daughter saw a banana sitting on the counter and came up with a brilliant idea: banana cookies. I combined healthy breakfast elements—eggs, yogurt, oats and peanut butter—all into one tasty breakfast cookie that was a huge hit.

My daughter helped measure and pour ingredients and stirred and taste-tested the batter—and she approved! A healthy breakfast is served.
