Here's a recipe for a healthy breakfast cookie, perfect for busy mornings or teenagers who need a low sugar breakfast but can't face eating a bowl of cereal. They are high fibre, high protein and low sugar, low salt so you know they are a healthy breakfast option.
They also make the perfect healthy snack to have with a cuppa or put in kids lunchboxes.
2T goji berries (raisins or low sugar dried cranberries work too) 2T sugar free chocolate chips (optional)
Pinch of salt
1/2 banana, mashed
2 1/2T almond butter* (peanut butter works too but ensure it is a wet mixture)
2T maple syrup
2T coconut oil, melted
1/2t vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Use a cookie scoop* to make even sized cookies and press down gently.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes on the tray the transfer to a cooling rack.
* I have also made these replacing the almond butter with cashew nut butter and they were delicious!
* If you do not have a cookie scoop, you can use a spoon
