Strawberry Banana Monster Breakfast Cookies

Strawberry Banana Monster Breakfast Cookies: Easy | Healthy | Gluten-Free | Dairy-Free | Grab & Go BreakfastBecause convenience food doesn’t have to come in a box…

Mornings can be hectic, which is why I love grab-and-go breakfasts. Unfortunately, most prepackaged breakfast foods are loaded with sugar, and highly processed or artificial ingredients. That’s why I set out to create a delicious, easy, and healthy breakfast cookie recipe. These strawberry banana breakfast cookies are a convenient and healthy breakfast, snack, or dessert option that takes just 10 minutes to prep!

Easy Prep

With just 10 minutes of prep, this recipe is seriously easy! Toss oats and Cheerios in a food processor or blender, blend for one minute, then dump the oat mixture and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, stir until well combined, drop by 1/3 cup full scoops (I use an ice cream scoop) onto a baking sheet, pop in the oven and you’re done!
