Blueberry Breakfast Cookies

Hello my zebras!

Today we’re breaking all the rules – at least at first sight! Why? Because we’ll have cookies for breakfast! Really … no toast, no eggs …  breakfast cookies!

Of course, those cookies are special and not the average ‘triple chocolate death by caramel or whatnot’ sugar bombs from the supermarket. The list of ingredients includes bananas, eggs, oatmeal and many other good things, which keep us full for a long time and make sure you’ll have a great start into the day. Sounds good? Believe me, they are – try it!

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 20 g melted butter / coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 90 g rolled oats

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 40 g blueberries
  • 15 g semisweet chocolate chunks

 

Preheat the oven to 200 °C (180 °C fan) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a small bowl, mash the banana and combine with the egg, butter, yogurt and chia seeds. Set aside for a few minutes.

In the meantime, mix oatmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients and stir until a dough is formed, then fold in the blueberries and chocolate chunks.

Place a heaped tablespoon of dough on the baking tray, flatten and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let them cool and serve.

The cookies are really fast to make and a nice way to switch things up! They’re also great when you don’t have a lot of time and have to eat on the go or just need a healthy snack.

 

Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
