Quick & Healthy Banana Walnut Breakfast Cookie

This quick and healthy banana walnut breakfast cookie reminds me of banana bread, but is a much healthier option for breakfast without any added sugar. The fiber, healthy fats, and protein will help keep you full all morning, and it’s even better with a cup of hot coffee in hand!

Is there anything better than starting your weekend days with blog reading and a breakfast cookie? I think not.

Healthy Banana Walnut Breakfast Cookie Recipe Speaking of breakfast cookies…I’m seriously obsessed. Gina has changed my breakfast life. I tried a new (to me) combo yesterday.

Banana Walnut Bread Breakfast Cookie

  • 1/3 oats
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 2 T almond milk
  • 1 T peanut butter
  • 1 T flax meal
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • 1 T chopped walnut
  1. Combine oats, PB, and protein powder until combined and kind of crumbly.
  2. Add milk and stir until well combined.
  3. Add in your tasty mix-ins – flax, cinnamon, banana, walnuts.
  4. Transfer it to a plate and using the back of a spoon, flatten and spread it out to make a cookie-ish shape.
  5. Stick ‘er in the fridge and let set overnight.
  6. Wake up to deliciousness. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and devour with a spoon.

I especially love this combo because it tasted just like banana walnut bread. SO GOOD!

For a different variation, check out my first post about making breakfast cookies.

Now, I believe I promised you guys a popsicle recipe. You know I’m trying to find ways to use up mint and I’m still working through some bottles of POM Wonderful that the wonderful folks at POM sent me a while ago.  DSC_0890

So, I give you…

Pomegranate Mojito Popsicles

Makes 3 small popsicles, about 50 calories each

  • 1/2 c. lowfat vanilla yogurt
  • 3 T 100% pomegranate juice
  • 3 t lime juice
  • 1 t chopped and muddled mint leaves

Combine all ingredients. Feel free to adjust the proportions to taste. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until hardened. (If you don’t have popsicle molds, paper cups with wooden skewers will work too.)

I recently bought these popsicle molds and am quite pleased. DSC_0970 Pretty and pretty tasty.DSC_0971 Let me know if you try these. I’m biased, but I think they’re great. 🙂

What’s your favorite kind of popsicle? I want to get a lot of use out of my new molds.

And guess who finally created a Facebook page? Become a “fan” or “liker” or whatever. 🙂

    I seriously want those molds! I’ve never made homemade icepops but I always loved the frezees when I was a kid – your version is way more mature – gotta try it! (:

      They are so cute and fun! And they are so easy to use. The silicone just peels back so easily.

    Popsicle molds make me feel like I’m a kid again 🙂 Well… maybe that’s because I haven’t had one since I was a kid, haha.

    Such a great idea!! I might have to try it 🙂

    What yummy looking popsicles!!

    I have also considered using a ball instead of a chair. I find that no matter what chair I use at work, I still have discomfort. Please let us know if you make the leap and try the ball!

    There are not enough thank-yous for the shout out!! You’ve made my week. Had I known my darierre was going to be on blast, I would have taken better pics, haa.

    Loaded oats are a divine way to start the day! My old colleague had a balance bar as a chair, everyone knew her as the “lady that sat on a balance ball” but I definitely would consider getting one. Two birds, one stone.

    What kind of pops are those?! I have never heard of such a tasty mixture. Pom mojito, that could also make for a lovely adult beverage. I have the serious old school molds but haven’t whipped them out this summer.

    Facebook – look at you go!!

      oops! sorry to blast your bottom pictures to the blog world! LOL.

      They are just some popsicles I made up trying to use up mint and pomegranate juice! We’d made virgin Pom mojitos a few months ago and I wanted it in popsicle form. 🙂

    I don’t use the stability balls at work although I’ve seen some that do. There are times when I will use one at home but I have to be very careful as time gets away from me and my lower back and core start to scream from trying not to roll away 😉

      Yeah, I’ve heard you have to build up to it. I’ll keep that in mind if I decide to get one!

    I’ve been purposely not watering my mint hoping it slows down how quickly it’s growing but so far it keep flourishing. I’ll have to try this recipe out when I get some POM!
