I've been looking for a healthy replacement for my world famous "Breakfast Cookie" for a while now and these Banana Oatmeal cups might just be it. In fact they are very similar to my cookies but don't have all the sugar and shortening. And the less refined sugar I eat, the better. So they're easy to make, healthy AND sugar free.
Why are they called Breakfast Cookies when they really should be called Banana Oatmeal Cookies? It started as a joke because I used to boast that these cookies were so healthy that I could eat them for breakfast. Now I don't endorse them as a 'breakfast food' but I have been known to eat the odd one with my morning coffee. And I can't really say that a cookie with shortening and lots of sugar is really healthy but they do have oatmeal, banana, flax seed and sunflower seeds,..and those things are kind of healthy. But with cookies it's all about yumminess and for me this is it.
