Blueberry breakfast cookies
I’m on a bit of a breakfast roll at the moment, although these could work as a snack or dessert option too.
They could be a good option for breakfast on the go, or when a child isn’t enthused about eating first thing.
Introducing different foods for fussy eaters is always good. Showing change helps with new.
These have blueberries on top as they are in season here in NZ, but you could use any fruit that would be a win for your child.
1 cup rolled oats (I used wholegrain and blitzed them a little in my spice grinder)
1 large mashed ripe banana (I used a frozen one as it’s all I had!)
¼ cup peanut butter
1/8 cup melted butter/light oil
1 hpd tsp melted honey/maple syrup (add more to taste)
Blueberries to place on top
Heat oven to 180˚
Mash banana and mix well with other ingredients except fruit.
Gently fold fruit through or place on top.
Split dough into 6 balls. Flatten into cookie shapes on a silicon sheet or greased oven tray.
Bake approx. 10 mins until browning.
Remove and eat!
