Today my women’s small group got together to assemble a gift basket and bake some freezer breakfasts for a single mom from our church. We made egg muffins and breakfast cookies, both of which freeze really well and can be heated up and eaten in the car. I thought I’d share here my recipe for the cookies. My kids love them and they are very filling and healthy. These are, unfortunately, not THM friendly, but perfect for growing kids and hungry husbands!
2 brown bananas
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
2 tablespoons nut butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon golden flax meal
1 cup finely ground oats (oat flour) or almond flour
1 1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts or dried cranberries
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Mash bananas. Blend in coconut oil, nut butter, maple syrup, egg, baking soda, vanilla, and flax. Stir in flour, oats, chocolate chips, and nuts/cranberries until just combined.
3. Drop about 1/4 cup portions onto baking sheet and press down lightly. Bake for about 14 minutes. Allow to cool completely before placing in freezer container.
Tomorrow we are starting our new school year- I will be teaching 3rd grade, Kindergarten, and chasing my 2 year old. We will be using My Father’s World this year for the first time, and I’m very excited to begin! I will be posting some pictures from our first day tomorrow afternoon.
