Food Is Medicine – Paleo-Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies

By November 5, 2020March 16th, 2024No Comments

 Sometimes we just don’t have time to fix breakfast.  That may create a need to go through a drive-thru to pick up some coffee and a quick breakfast item.  If you take your own coffee and grab one of these cookies you can save yourself about $6 to $8 and have a healthier meal.  The recipe is easy and will make about 10 cookies.  I added monk fruit to sweeten them a bit more but that is an optional step.  The cookies can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week or you can freeze them.  Be sure to wrap each cookie individually so they don’t stick together and are easy to grab and go. 

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts and/or dried fruit
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup monk fruit, optional
  1. In a large mixing bowl mash the bananas
  2. Add other ingredients.
  3. Chill the dough for one hour in the refrigerator.  This helps keep it from spreading out to thin during baking.
  4. Drop two to three tablespoons of batter per cookie on a parchment covered cookie sheet and spread out a bit with the back of the spoon.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.
  6. Allow cookies to cool in place on the cookie sheet.  It is helpful to use a metal thin-edged spatula when removing the cookies to avoid tearing the cookie.  Cookies will be soft.
