For someone who actually doesn’t like oatmeal that much, I sure do love baking with it. I’ve made delicious no sugar strawberry banana oatmeal muffins, perfect little granola energy bites, animal shaped oatmeal cookies, mini oatmeal pumpkin toddler bites, and now this: Healthy oatmeal breakfast cookies.
I realized, the only way I don’t really like oatmeal is in the porridge form. Go figure. But these oatmeal breakfast cookies are my favorite. Especially when loaded with walnuts, cranberries and chocolate chips.
Just look at all that goodness. Bananas, quick oats, all natural peanut butter, walnuts, dried cranberries, chia seeds and chocolate chips.
The base of these oatmeal breakfast cookies are bananas and quick oats. But the add-in options are endless. So far, this is our favorite combo. My daughter obviously loves the chocolate chips. I, think the walnuts give it the extra special touch.
It also makes a great after school snack. My daughter and I are actually munching on these as I type. Yum. Recipe below!

I wanted to try these – the recipe looks great! Can you tell me if I can freeze them?
I’ve never froze them, but if I made a double batch, I would probably try. I would freeze it for a couple hours on a tray and then transfer to a ziplock. Please let me know if it turns out! To thaw, I believe, like muffins, you could thaw it overnight in the fridge or counter. Thanks!
