Looking for a quick and easy breakfast or midday snack that will keep you going. I know myself busy with a little toddler running around I need something quick and easy to get my day started and keep me going through the day. These oatmeal cherry cookies are a much better tasting then the prepackaged protein bars you find at your local store. These are soft and chewy, plus they have no added sugar and are gluten free so it can keep you feeling good and guilt free. Check out the recipe below.
These cookies have only few ingredients that are shown above. If you are not into big into the protein shakes, I found that stores like target (where i got it) carries single serve packets that will give you enough protein powder for 2x this recipe. The first thing you want to is preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Start mashing the bananas in the bowl until smooth. I find that a fork works great, but you can use a potato masher.
Once you got the bananas ready, you want to add the melted coconut oil and mix until smooth.
Add all of the remaining ingredients , start folding it into the banana/oil mixture.
Mix together until you get a firm ball that is all combined.
Divide the mixture into 12 equal balls, it should be about a golf/ping pong ball size. Press the ball down with your palm until the cookies are about 2" diameter wide.
Bake for around 20 minutes until the edges start to get lightly brown. Let cool on the sheet pan for a few minutes before transferring them over to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
