When I started this blog, I was a new yoga teacher, teaching one or two classes a week, with lots of time on my hands. And in that free time, I played around with creating easy healthy recipes to share.
Fast forward FIVE years and a lot has changed. I’m still cooking whenever I can, but my schedule has changed pretty dramatically. I’m so happy that I have now been able to make a career doing what I love. I teach yoga classes, train others to become yoga teachers, run a yoga program, offer workshops and special events and lead yoga trips internationally.
So with less free time, I haven’t posted in this blog for quite a while. In this new year, I hope to do more. Starting today with a simple breakfast cookie that is quick and so easy. Only a few ingredients and (gasp) a microwave, gives you a satisfying way to start the day.
It’s so simple. Mash a banana, add some oats and maybe a little sweetener (that’s up to you) and “bake” your cookies in about 90 seconds in the microwave. I like to drizzle them with nut butter but they are great just as they are too.
This is another fun way to have oatmeal in the morning. I eat mine with a fork. They’re not really the kind of cookie you pick up and eat. But who cares? They are so good.
The topping I used this morning was a little sunflower butter, coconut oil and agave. It was perfect. 🙂
Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup rolled oats
Agave to taste
1 Tbps nut butter
1/2 tsp coconut oil
Mash banana in a small bowl and mix in rolled oats. Add a little agave if you wish.
Form small cookies by dropping spoonfuls of the mixture on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes or until the cookies are a little dry to the touch.
Mix together the nut butter and coconut oil and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Add agave to taste.
Drizzle the nut butter on top of the cookies and enjoy your cookies for breakfast.
