Breakfast… it’s the first meal of they day. Everyone says you should make sure to eat breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day. When I was growing up breakfast was cold cereal and milk. I didn’t mind it at the time. I mean it was sugar after all.
Breakfast has always been a hard meal for me to make sure I eat. Often breakfast has been coffee, or a bit of yogurt or maybe a banana. Nothing spectacular or great, and nothing wholesome and filling. I’ve tried to make sure to eat breakfast and eat something good for me and filling. This recipe helps meet that goal.
Since I joined WeightWatchers earlier this year (I’ve since canceled my membership) I added several WW related blogs to my Google Reader. This recipe is one of those. I love the http://www.loserforlife.com website. She’s so good about sharing how her weight-loss journey is going and sharing recipes like crazy. I love LOVE this recipe for breakfast cookies. These things are filling and also healthy. There’s almost no sugar and there’s lots of bran. Make some this weekend and enjoy each morning in the coming week. I know I will be.
In a large bowl, combine flour, bran, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a smaller bowl, combine banana, egg white, applesauce and vanilla.
Add banana mixture to oat mixture and stir until fully incorporated. Stir in walnuts.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop batter and place mounds on lined cookie sheet.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes.
