Oat cookies are a dime a dozen it seems, but do you know how versatile they truly are?
Watch how we make them a snack, breakfast, and fun for kids to help make.
When I made this cookie, I was sure the kids would actually not like it. The recipe is similar to a million out there, even ones I have done before, but I knew I had to add an element of creativity to have my kids get in on it.
It’s so important to get the kids involved, so they have a say in what they are eating, even if they don’t totally understand it’s good for them.
Furthermore (I love that word), I realized that you really can’t screw up these oat cookies, and we have settled on ones that we seem to like BEST.
Watch Caiden and I make our favourite breakfast cookies.
1 cup of rolled oats
1 ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup of natural peanut buttter or nut butter of choice
2 tbsp of milk of choice
Toppings of choice (we prefer cranberries, chocolate chips and sunflower seeds).
- Mash up the banana quite well
- Add your nut butter and mix well
- Add in the milk and mix until combined
- Add in your oats, vanilla and cinnamon and mix until all combined

- Have fun topping each cookie however you like (get the kids involved here)
