Banana Cranberry Cashew Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Unfortunately I don’t always have the time to prepare a smoothie or muesli and sit down to eat. These breakfast cookies are perfect for the busy days.  They’re packed with healthy ingredients, vegan and sooo delicious. The cookies will only take about 20 minutes to make. You can even make them ahead of time and eat them throughout the week. After all, you’ll need the vitamins and fibres to be the awesome person you are and kick ass. And cookies for breakfast? Definitely for winners!

    1. I guess you could leave them out, but I’d recommend you to add some water or milk to make sure the dough is moist enough. Or use soaked flaxseeds instead. Let me know how they turn out if you try it.

      1. I did try it before your reply. Without the seeds. I added dried raisin instead of the cranberry. I added some. I did not have milk. They were so good. My family loved them. Next time I will try with the cranberry and the seeds. Thanks a lot for sharing your recipe.
