Sometimes, I crave dessert for breakfast. I should probably ignore these cravings, knowing that my sweet tooth is immense; but, I’ve found a way to compromise between something kind of outlandish and maybe not so healthy and something that has some great components to it that aren’t terrible for you. How can anyone be mad at that? 😉
Last week I made a batch of these Strawberry Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies before coming out to work the second weekend of Coachella, mostly for the few guys that I work with because I get in “mom mode” like that sometimes. Well, let me tell you, I should have doubled the size of that batch because these things disappeared almost instantly. This was probably my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe to date, and the guys I fed them to (even the picky eaters) agreed!
I would recommend that you feed these to anyone that will have them, and that you double the batch because these cookies aren’t very large and they will go fast. The sweetness of the banana compliments the strawberries as perfectly as you can imagine and even with the little amount of coconut oil in them it takes on a buttery flavor without any processed substitutes.
