Healthy Breakfast Cookies



I usually wake up pretty early to head to work.. and let me tell you I am not a morning person. 
And I really try my best to eat healthy.

On that note, I wanted to make something that I could just grab and go, to eat with my coffee on the way to work in the morning. 

These healthy breakfast cookies are packed full of yummy ingredients to help get your day started off right. Check out the recipe below.






Ingredients
2 1/4 cup oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup cranberries
1/3 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1 cup peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
2 bananas, mashed
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (get my homemade recipe here)

2. In a bowl, combine oats, flour, cranberries, almond, chia seeds, flax seed, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
