Do you ever buy a bunch of bananas and you look up one day and they’re all spotty. You’re like waiiiit I just bought you. But it’s kinda a blessing in disguise because then you get to treat yoself to some delicious baked banana something.

That’s more or less what happened to me the other day.

Two loley, browned bananas were just staring at me. So while I debated whether I should make my favorite coconut almond banana bread or my double chocolate banana bread, I ended up settling on something different…

I decided to make a breakfast cookie that definitely feels indulgent and has chocolate chips but also loaded with protein and good stuff to make it a great way to kickstart your day.

But, probably my favorite part of these cookies is the kid-friendly aspect. My kids are big snackers and my younger son loved heating a couple of these cookies up to eat and random times throughout the day.
