These crispy cookies are chock-full of healthy ingredients. A drizzle of white chocolate might help you fool your kids into thinking they’re not.
I’ve been working on stocking my freezer for the school year lately. For lunches, I’ve made Pizza Sauce, Pizza Rolls, and Pizza Balls from Weelicious Lunches; some easy baked chicken nuggets; PBJ Smoothies frozen in silicone pop molds; and a couple muffin recipes that will work for breakfast, lunch, or snacks. For breakfasts, I’ve also thrown in a few waffles and extra pancakes as well as both baked and unbaked muffins!
I listed these cookies on a post I did two years ago at ParentLife: 25 Make-Ahead Breakfasts for Back-to-School. But I had never actually tried them. So today, tucked inside due to the pouring rain, I decided it was time.
The original recipe calls for mashed banana instead of eggs. I didn’t have any that were ripe enough, so I just used eggs as a binder. I added some coconut sugar for a little sweetness. I’ll admit that these still are not very sweet. I like the almost bitter taste from the allspice mixed with the sweet bite of dried fruit. But I drizzled a little white chocolate over most of them to help my kids enjoy them. They are used to pretty sweet baked goods (and yes, often prepackaged granola bars), but if yours will eat straight oatmeal or don’t have much sugar, you can leave off the topping.
I am super happy with how these turned out, and I will be enjoying them for breakfast along with my kids on these busy back-to-school mornings.
Note: These are gluten-free as written. Use gluten-free oats if necessary. For a nut free cookie, simply substitute some type of flour for almond meal.
