The Best way to get your kids to eat veggies, fruit, protein and healthy fats for breakfast?! Put them in cookie form, of course!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I must say Iโ€™m pretty happy about these cookies! They check off ALL of those PLUS theyโ€™re gluten/grain-free (paleo) and are only sweetened with fruit (so zero added sugars). Bonus: the boys DEVOURED them! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #momwin


Yield:

A LOT! Over 3 dozen… some for now, some to freeze for later!


Ingredients:

  • 3 largeย  super ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup natural almond butter
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (if using frozen, be sure to squeeze all the water out)
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup unflavored collagen powder*
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Add-ins such as raisins, craisins or chocolate chips (I like the brand Lilly’s that are sweetened with stevia)*If you do not have collagen powder, you can try subbing it with an unflavored or vanilla protein powder, but I have not tried so I cannot vouch for it! You can also try leaving it out and instead adding another 1/4 cup coconut flour (but note that that will lower the protein content)
    **If you desire a sweeter cookie, feel free to add 1/4-1/2 cup coconut sugar

Directions:

  1. Throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. NOTE: It will still be a bit runny… like in between regular cookie dough and muffin batter. BUT it should still be thick enough to scoop onto a cookie sheet.
  2. Spray a cookie sheet well and use a cookie scoop to scoop dough onto cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Remove from pan and let cool on a cooling rack.These should be fluffy and soft and delicious!! Store in a tupperware in the fridge or freeze for later!
