Breakfast Banana Oatmeal Cookies
What's great about it
From my award-winning cookbook Purely Delicious, these Breakfast Banana Oatmeal Cookies are made from all-natural ingredients and free from the processed sugars and preservatives found in many store-bought cookies.
Bursting with banana and Healthy Chef Protein goodness, these cookies are the ultimate go-to for a purely delicious cookie and super fun for the kids to get busy making! Bananas and dates are great energy boosters and excellent sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.
