Kids Kitchen Instructor Paige Balius led students at Brushy Creek Elementary in making Banana Breakfast Cookies. Paige reported, “We melted, mashed and measured — Once our cookies were done, they were gone in a flash!” Kids learned that making a delicious cookie for breakfast can in fact be nutritious.
This recipe combines bananas, oats, and flax with sweetness added using maple syrup (or honey) and either chocolate chips or raisins. Make a batch and have several breakfasts ready to go. Add a cup of milk and you have a complete meal (60% carbohydrates, 20% protein, and 20% healthy fats) to sustain you throughout your morning.
