Three Ingredient Breakfast Cookies - a Recipe!

You know when you read recipes by famous people and think "Nah!  There is no way I can recreate that?!"  That is how I feel when I read any of Gina's recipes over at Skinny Taste. Her pictures are so beautiful and her food always seems delicious. 

This time, I decided I would try one of her super healthy recipes and blog about it to you no matter what the final product looked like. I settled on her breakfast banana oatmeal cookies since I had two BLACK bananas in my fruit bowl. Turns out that's exactly what they should look like for this recipe. 

Super easy!
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. 

MASH 2 super ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Add in 1 cup of oats (not steel cut!) and 1/4 cup chocolate chips. You could add in gluten free oats and chips to make this a GF recipe!

Then grab a cookie scoop, like this one, and place 1 tbs size scoops on a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. 

Keep going until you have used up all the "dough."

Bake for 16 minutes and remove from oven to cool. 

SD Dad and I sampled one right out of the oven.  SD Dad, who doesn't like recipes that have been healthified (new word!  YAY!), reached for two more!

But the real test came in the morning when D & S had them for breakfast.  S LOVED them and had 2.  D said he liked them but was full after one.  His code for "Not sure about these mom!"

I tried one too.  Almost as good as the night before just cold with harder choclate.  So there you have it, next time you have BLACK bananas and a sweet craving, make these.  According to Gina, they are only 1 WW point!

What is your favorite kid-friendly (and SD Dad) healthified recipe?  Share with me please!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. I make something similar but I've never baked mine! Great idea!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. What ingredients do you put in yours Jan? I have been trying to figure out how to add in some Nuttzo to these cookies. Maybe idea! Thanks!

  2. I can't wait to try these! I'm tired of banana bread lol!

    1. Hope you like them! They were an easier (both effort and calories) than banana bread!

  3. I make these all the time! It really is the perfect way to use up old bananas and my kids love them :)

    1. My daughter LOVES them. My son isn't so sure. I love them and they feel naughty and nice, you know?
