Our morning routine in my house can be pretty hectic and my daughter wakes up HANGRY. Normally the first thing she says when I get her out of her crib is, “eat eat eat”. And my girl does not like to wait on her food. Since she’s almost two and tantrums are a daily occurrence, I’ve learned that in order to avoid a def-con 5 meltdown before 7AM, that I need to have breakfast ready to go when she wakes up.

I’ve started making these super easy breakfast cookies ahead of time, in order to have breakfast ready for my girl – no matter how early she decides to wake up. These cookies are delicious and full of peanut butter, Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and banana. She’s getting the nutrients I need for her to get, with the taste that she loves. Plus I can tell her she’s eating cookies for breakfast and she’s super excited. Mom Win!

  • Preheat over to 360

  • Mash Bananas

  • Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well together
