These delicious cookies are the perfect breakfast for those in a hurry! Or a great post workout snack. Made with natural sugars from banana and honey then mixed with a selection of nuts and seeds to provide some essential good fats.
They are also gluten free and the recipe can be adapted to cater for any other dietary requirements.
For chocolate lovers I have added chocolate chips to this recipe which makes them even more delicious.
These cookies should be enjoyed as part of a healthy balanced diet. They may seem high in sugar but this is natural sugar and combined with the nuts, oats and seeds these will not cause a large insulin spike and will keep you fuller for longer.
If you wanted you could add a scoop of protein to increase the protein content. Or if you don’t like some of the ingredients change them for other items such as dried fruit.
