Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookie

breakfastcookie1I always find breakfast the hardest meal of the day. Most good breakfast choices take too long in the morning. I love the concept of a quick breakfast bar but most store bought brands have so much sugar I might as well eat a cookie. Which is what gave me the idea to make a Breakfast Cookie from my yummiest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. With the help of GGC Dietitian Joanne, I think we came up with something that is packed with goodness and still tastes good. And the best part is you can make them the night before and you have a weeks worth of easy grab-and-go breakfast.
