Hello my beautiful friends! How are you doing? I am doing well today. Time is going at just the right speed and I'm checking everything off of my list. I think that we should credit these cookies for the fact that good things are happening. If you make a batch of these and start your morning off by munching on a few of them, then you're bound to have a good day! Trust me on this. I was snacking on these all morning while creating amazing things.
My sister and a couple of her friends are interested in eating better and were going to go on some crazy ridiculous diet. I'm sure that you all know how I feel about that. So guess what! I'm coming up with a little healthy lifestyle plan for them. Woo, excited! While I was working on the plan I was trying to come up with some different breakfast ideas that I would have enjoyed while in high school. That's how these little guys were born. Chocolate breakfast cookies, yes please!
These are so easy, fun, and magically delicious! You could definitely make them the night before or even make a bunch to last for the week. I can't promise that they will actually last that long in your house though. I'm running quite low right now and they were made very recently. That's okay though! Make 'em, eat 'em, love 'em.
Let's do it!
Chocolate Breakfast Cookies
makes 4 cookies
Cookies: 1 banana
1/2 cup oats
1 tablespoon cacao
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash the banana in a medium bowl. Add the oats and cacao into the bowl and mix together thoroughly. Spoon out medium sized cookies onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside.
Filling: 1/2 cup dates
1/4 cup cashews
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoon cacao
In your blender or food processor blend together all ingredients.
Spread filling on half of the cookies and top with the other cookies. Top with any toppings that you'd like. I used hemp seeds and peanut butter and can confirm that they are good!
Store in airtight container for 5-7 days.
