This mama messed up big time, but what else is new am I right?

If you have been following my IG stories recently, you would have seen that I accidentally ordered SIXTEEN POUNDS of bananas. Yes. You heard that right. I am still trying to get a hold of this online grocery shopping and when I clicked for 7 bananas, I thought I was getting 7 individual bananas. That is not what I got. This mama received 7 bunches of bananas!

What’s a mama to do? Well, for a week straight we were eating banana bread, drinking banana smoothies and towards the end I was just straight up scooping the banana in a tub of peanut butter and eating it like a fork.

I did find a great recipe and wanted to share with you guys, because these delicious cookies really came in handy during our busy mornings while trying to get ready for work and daycare. The best part? Franco loved them! All you need are 4 ingredients and about 20 minutes to prepare and you will have breakfast for a week! These breakfast cookies are super filling and guilt free!

These breakfast cookies are super filling and guilt free! This recipe makes about 10 cookies.

I am not the best baker in the world, but these cookies were so easy to make and pretty hard to mess up!

These cookies lasted all week and they were perfect to just throw in my bag for a quick pick me up throughout the day. These bad boys are packed with protein and energy.

2 cups rolled oats
3 ripe mashed bananas
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Here is what you will need:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 ripe mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix all ingredients together very well, use hands if needed.
  • Once combined fold in chocolate chips.
  • Form ten balls and place on cookie sheet. Press each ball into the shape of a cookie.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely until serving.

It is best to refrigerate to avoid change in texture or spoiling. You can even freeze them! I prefer to take them out the night before so they are fully thawed out before you eat them.

let cool completely until serving.

So I might have screwed up but I definitely benefited from it. Not only did I learn that 16 pounds of bananas are only about $8.00, but I learned a great recipe that I will definitely be making on the regular!
