Gluten Free Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Cookies (GF/DF/V)
If there is a better combination than peanut butter, chocolate and banana I don’t know about it. I mean, these cookies are basically 3 of my favorite things put together in 1 bite size package.
They look like cookies. They smell like cookies. They taste like cookies. But there is absolutely NO added sugar and they are secretly loaded with wild caught seafood collagen (shhhhh… don’t tell the kids!) I know, I’m sneaky. Oh so sneaky.
Only 6 ingredients and 15 minutes to make. They store well in the fridge for 4-5 days and are the perfect on the go breakfast or snack. Sometimes I store them in the freezer and then throw one in my daughter’s lunch bag in the morning and it dethaws by lunchtime.
1 batch makes a bakers dozen.
Why Collagen Protein?
I am always looking for ways to sneak in superfoods into my kid’s diet. One of the things I try to have daily is collagen protein. Why? Well, not only is it good for your skin (hello wrinkles), joints, hair and nails, its is also easy to digest and won’t spike your blood sugar like some other protein powders. To take a look at a quick list of health benefits of this amazing protein, click here. I like the brands Truvani (by Food Babe) or Primal Kitchen (by Mark Sisson.)
