Ingredients For These Banana Breakfast Cookie Recipe.
Bananas. Bananas bind this cookie together AND add a great punch of potassium and carbohydrates to make them the perfect post-workout snack.
Almond Butter. If you don't have almond butter, you can use your favorite nut butter instead!
Oats. Delicious, full of fiber, and a great base for this breakfast cookie!
Blueberries. Blueberries are my favorite, but if you don't like them, you can swap them out for nuts or dried fruit instead.
Protein Powder. I love adding protein powder to these cookies to help bind them together and to give them an extra oomph, but you can leave it out if you prefer. If you want to add even more protein, you can incorporate an egg white into the batter.
