Instructions for Easy Recipe for Oatmeal Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies
Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Mix the Oatmeal Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed banana, nut butter, oats, vanilla, and honey. Stir with a heavy fork until well blended. Fold in the desired add-ins. We used chocolate chips last time--but the husband requested raisins and nuts next time too! Get creative--but I wouldn't add more than about a 1/2 c. of additional add-in ingredients into the cookies so that they hold together and bake well. 

Drop the Cookies Onto the Baking Sheet & Bake. Drop the cookie mixture onto the prepared baking sheet by rounded tablespoon-full. Flatten each tablespoon of cookie dough gently with the back of a spatula or by hand. If you want to make the cookies "pretty"--you can round the flattened cookie by hand to re-shape it. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Let the baked cookies sit on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before moving to wire cookie racks to fully cool. 

Serve. The kids and I like to eat these Oatmeal Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies by themselves with milk--and we have them as afternoon snacks too! My husband likes to crumble a couple of cookies over some Greek yogurt instead!
