Peanut Butter Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

A great time saver when you are on the go and don't have time to make breakfast. These are great with a scoop of ice cream for desert too.

They are the result of me experimenting with my basic oatmeal cookie recipe as I had ingredients on hand. I have recently eliminated the butter entirely from this recipe and it comes out great, just stir in the flour VERY well so the mix is even.

To make them even healthier you could add protein powder, switch to whole wheat flour, add wheat germ, etc.
