Banana Walnut Breakfast Cookies

 

IMG_3186Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Unfortunately, I rarely have time to sit down and enjoy a relaxing meal in my kitchen. Most breakfasts are on the go! For those days when you can’t afford to take a break for a morning meal, these breakfast cookies are the perfect grab and go option! Bake them the night before and you can have breakfast for the entire week prepared. They are fairly healthy and have a great flavor that will make your hectic mornings a little more enjoyable! Just save them in the refrigerator, pop them in the toaster, and go tackle your day.
