I hate mornings. Yep. I said it. What I do love are quiet, slow mornings where I can not talk to anyone or do much when I wake. Well, that dream died the second I gave birth to my first daughter almost 5 years ago. Now, mornings are filled with so much talking and questions – I am ON the moment my eyes open. Of course I LOVE and adore my family. It is just different now. Let’s just say that I rely on quick and easy breakfasts. They use the least amount of my limited morning brain power!!
I created these cookies when we first started to reduce and eliminate grains from our diet. Typically, cookies like these are made with oats, but I needed to create something that didn’t use oats. Eating grains affects my skin quite dramatically and it is hard on my daughters digestion. So using shredded coconut instead of oats was just the solution I was looking for.
I consider coconut to be one of the most amazing foods. Not only is it delicious, but it super versatile and PACKED with nutrition. Coconut is naturally blood sugar balancing because it contains healthy fats, fiber AND protein. Such a great choice for breakfast to get you all powered up for the day!
These breakfast cookies are sugar free but still sweet thanks to the natural sweetness from the bananas. I also always make a batch for road trips because they keep well in a container, and are easy snacks for the road.
I hope you enjoy them! Let me know what you add in to yours in the comments below!
