Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies: yummy & soft gluten free banana oatmeal breakfast cookies. EASY healthy breakfast cookies, packed with chocolate & chewy oats! Vegan, GF, Dairy-Free, Flourless.
Have you ever been on a super, super long road trip and gone nearly nuts with hunger? I have. And so has Erik. Come to think of it, we were in the same boat (er… bus).
Back when we were living in Maine, Erik and I frequently took the bus to Boston to visit my mom and my sister Jenny. And when I say frequently, I mean long-ly. Okay, that’s not a word, but you know what I mean! There were so many times I wished we had a few oil-free peanut butter oatmeal breakfast cookies or, perhaps some banana oatmeal breakfast cookies, ya know?
Those four-hour bus rides were so, sooooooo dreadfully long. Especially if you take into account the fact that we had to get to the bus station early, sit there for 4.5 hours, then navigate through South Station (the bus/train station where we arrived), then take like 100 million more hours ‘til we arrived at Jenny’s.
You can imagine the hunger that we built up during those trips. I mean, a few fellow bus riders had whole jars of mayo to snack on. <– I literally still do not know what to do with that information.
Meanwhile, as naturally hungry folks, our baseline is hangry, m’kay? 😉 After too many trips to count, I finally realized that we had to bring some fine, fine healthy snacks to keep us going/not grumpy because my mom would not be feelin’ that.
Enter: gluten free banana oatmeal breakfast cookies!
Gluten Free Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies: Banana Chocolate Chip!
These healthy breakfast cookies were our saving grace during all of those smelly and exhausting trips. (Alright, you really didn’t need to know about the smelly part. But those herbaceous buses, tho!)
We’d each unashamedly unpack and reverently unwrap a couple of these banana oatmeal breakfast cookies… and as Erik would like for me to point out, proudly enjoy the jealous stares and drools of strangers. Lol. Like, keep those eyes on your jars of mayo, m’kay?
These healthy breakfast cookies kept us sated, sane and energized throughout long trips, long days and post-workout (they’re multi-functional hehe). Try these easy, vegan, dairy-free and gluten free banana oatmeal breakfast cookies and ENJOY!
The Ingredients: Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
Bananas are the star of these gluten free breakfast cookies! Make sure to use very ripe bananas—the riper the bananas, the naturally sweeter the breakfast cookies.
Creamy, Natural Peanut Butter
One of my favorite ingredients in vegan gluten free baking: natural peanut butter, adds creaminess, protein and healthy fats to this banana oatmeal breakfast cookies recipe. Bonus: peanut butter keeps you full longer for a great morning! PB Lovers: be sure to try my Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Cookies and my Healthy Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe (Vegan, Gluten Free).
Gluten Free Rolled Oats
Make sure to use gluten free-certified rolled oats to keep these healthy breakfast cookies gluten free. If you’re having trouble finding rolled oats, look for old-fashioned oats (their other name).
With just 3 tablespoons of coconut sugar in about 30 banana breakfast cookies, my banana oatmeal breakfast cookies recipe doesn’t include much added sugar. Naturally sweetened treats, ftw! Woohoo!
I love using coconut oil in place of butter, canola oil or other traditional oils for all of my vegan gluten free cookies. Don’t worry, this healthy oil doesn’t add a coconut flavor to your gluten free oatmeal breakfast cookies!
Vegan Chocolate Chips
An optional, but not really (hehe!!), ingredient in these gluten free banana oatmeal breakfast cookies. Here’s one of the vegan chocolate chip brands that I use for cookies, this Almond Joy Overnight Oats Recipe and more. Make sure to top your banana breakfast cookies with chocolate chips to make ‘em pretty!
