Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies!

  I often make muffins for breakfast because they are so easy to make and also easy for the kids to grab and eat as many as they would like.  I really like using Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes from Costco (you can buy them other places too!).  This baking mix already has protein in it, so using if for waffles, pancakes, and muffins is perfect for breakfast!  I'm a little bit crazy about making sure my kids have a good amount of protein with each meal, and I LOVE how easy this baking mix makes it!

  So, this morning I decided an oatmeal breakfast cookie could be a fun change of pace for us.  I used this recipe from Yummy Healthy Easy, and adapted it to use the Power Cakes.  Instead of using whole wheat flour and baking soda, I used a half cup of the Power Cakes mix.  So, between the peanut butter and the Power Cakes, these little cookies have plenty of protein and make a great breakfast to start the day!  I also only used 1/4 cup of sugar instead of the 1/2 cup the recipe calls for. The banana helps the cookies in the sweetness department too!  And, we were out of raisins, so I didn't add those.  These would probably be wonderful with mini chocolate chips, but I decided not to add them this time!

  The kids gobbled them up in no time, and will likely grab one or two more as the morning goes on.  I'll make these again!
