It is zucchini season and while we do not have a garden, both of our parents do and they are always giving us a lot of zucchini. We like to grill the zucchini or to make zucchini muffins or bread, but I wanted something different to do with the zucchini this year. I decided I wanted to make a breakfast using zucchini.
Recently I have been seeing a lot of breakfast cookies on blogs. These cookies always intrigued me because they are cookies, yet they are healthy enough to make for breakfast. Because I wanted to try breakfast cookies and I wanted to make a breakfast using zucchini, I decided to combine my two ideas and make Zucchini Breakfast Cookies.
These Zucchini Banana Almond Breakfast Cookies combine zucchini, banana, almond butter, and slivered almonds. They also have oats in them and are healthy and a great breakfast food. They reminded me of a soft granola bar or oatmeal in cookie form. My son loved the idea that he was allowed to eat cookies for breakfast, plus he loved the taste of these.
We all that these little cookies were delicious and were a great breakfast. I also really liked that these can be made ahead of time and grabbed as you leave the house. We area always busy in the mornings and I love easy and fast breakfasts that are still good for you. This is a great way to use your zucchini too. I hope you try these great breakfast cookies!
