THE RECIPE

Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies

Who said you can’t have cookies for breakfast?

Our parents always told us that we couldn’t have cookies for breakfast. Now that we’re grown up, we’re breaking the rules and not saying sorry. Lucky for us, we don’t have to feel bad about that morning indulgence with these “breakfast cookies” from Sally. They’re loaded with oats, dried fruit, and seeds and sweetened with maple syrup. The most creative part of this recipe, however, is what’s hiding inside. Instead of eggs, Sally uses almond butter and…wait for it…a mashed banana to hold the batter together and add a touch of all-natural sweetness. Since these cookies are dairy-free, they’ll keep good in an airtight container on the counter for days meaning that you can mix them up once and enjoy them all week. They are hearty and dense, keeping you full for hours and ready to tackle the day ahead.
