A healthy breakfast cookie for Chicago families

This morning I struggled to find a healthy breakfast for my kids. My son wanted chocolate chip pancakes again and my daughter wanted a bagel and cream cheese. How about eggs? Peanut butter on toast? Oatmeal? Yogurt with granola?

I had one banana sitting on the counter and my daughter came up with a brilliant idea! Banana Cookies! I combined eggs, yogurt, oats and peanut butter all into one cookie! My daughter helped measure, pour, stir and taste test the batter. She approved.

Breakfast is served!
