Blueberry Almond Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Blueberry Almond Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies ~ so much breakfast goodness, all rolled up into a tasty breakfast cookie!  Who says you can't eat cookies for breakfast?

I am really digging these Breakfast Cookies.  Where have they been all my life?  I'm making a different type every few days.  It's such an easy way to eat your oats.  I'm trying to eat a serving of oats a day, but sometimes I just can't face another these cookies are coming in mighty handy!  And depending on the size I make them, 3 or 4 cookies are a 1/2 cup serving oats.  I love eating four cookies for breakfast ~ it seems so indulgent, but it's not!  Needless to say, these are our new favorite way to eat oats.  It just amazes me that they have no sugar added & are dairy, egg & flour free.  Eating cookies is just so much more fun then eating a bowl of oatmeal, wouldn't you agree?  :)
