Three Ingredient Toddler-Approved Breakfast Cookies

This “recipe” is so simple it doesn’t even feel like it should be called a recipe, but I wanted to share it for all my fellow toddler moms out there. I know many of us can struggle with your little one’s eating- whether they are a picky eater, just want to eat snacks or don’t want to sit down long to eat. These breakfast cookies only include three ingredients, all of which I think most moms would feel good about. Not only does Nicholas love having these cookies for a snack, he also really liked helping me make them which made it a fun activity we can do together. If you have a child with allergies, these cookies are free of major allergens so are a great option to get your little one in the kitchen too! While I am calling these cookies toddler approved, I will say I’ve eaten my fair share and like them for an on the go option too! Because they are packed with oats, they are a great option for nursing moms- I’m thinking I’ll t

Hope you get the chance to make these cookies with your little ones! If you do, I’d love to hear about it!

You’ll Need:

Makes one dozen cookies

  • Two ripe bananas
  • One and a half cups of quick oats
  • 1/3 of a cup raisins (can sub in dried cranberries or mini chocolate chips if that is more your thing)

To Make:

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.

Prepare your baking sheet by covering with parchment paper or cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the two bananas using a fork.

Add in oats and mix together until it looks like a very thick dough.

Add in raisins or other toppings and combine.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop the dough onto prepared baking sheet in a cookie shape. These cookies will not change shape, so if you have them as balls or flatten out, that is the shape they will cook in.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until set and slightly golden around the edges.

Cool and enjoy with your little one!
