Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies


   These yummy breakfast cookies are packed with healthy ingredients that will give you energy to get your day started. These cookies are easy to grab when you don't have time for breakfast. I like to eat a couple of these cookies before I go for my morning walk. They also make a great afternoon snack. I love that they are low in sugar and fat but high in fiber.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies 

2 tablespoons flax seed meal
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

 1. Heat the oven to 350 F. Combine the flax seed meal, bananas, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla until well mixed.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, whole-wheat flour, coconut, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour in the banana mixture, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds. Mix well.

3. Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of batter onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper and flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. Repeat with the rest of batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the cookies on a plate or wire tack. Store these cookies in the fridge or in an airtight container at room temperature.
