When I first realized there was a whole world of food blogs out there, Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy was one of the first that I started reading. I've been striving to make a bigger commitment to breakfast and have been trying out some new recipes in that direction (cereal bars, mighty muffins, migas, etc. I saw the recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Cookies earlier this year on Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy and printed it out for a future baking. The future is now here. And it confirms what I've always known: I can bake almost any kind of cookie successfully, except traditional chocolate chip.
What You Need
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 medium ripe banana, mashed1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup chunky peanut butter - I used the Kroger brand Honey Nut Chunky PB....so good!
3/4 cup whole wheat flour - Buying this flour makes me committed to healthier baking
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole honey nut O's (not Cheerios per se, but they were made using wind energy, so I felt good about myself)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut
What You Do
Good news - no Denver altitude problems or adjustments needed for this recipe!
Preheat oven to 350 F.
I posted the picture of these cookies for my friends on Facebook on Sunday and it persuaded another friend to make a donation to my Bike MS ride in return for me making her a batch of breakfast cookies.
