Did you know that today is National Oatmeal Day? It is! To celebrate, we made some yummy breakfast cookies to celebrate National Oatmeal Day. Psst! They are the perfect on-the-go breakfast treat to nibble on the way to the bus stop.
Baking breakfast with kids in the morning is not the easiest. But when it’s a baked treat like these cookies, the kids can help me make it the evening before – it’s perfect. Our usual go-to breakfast is oatmeal for my daughter or Quaker Oatmeal Squares for my son, so can you see why we are celebrating National Oatmeal Day – it is our favorite breakfast!
This is why when Quaker asked me to be part of their Oat Authority, it was such an easy yes – it’s already a product we love and use daily. Quaker believes that everyone should begin each morning prepared for the good things that lie ahead. That’s why on National Oatmeal Day, Quaker is giving away up to one million bowls of oatmeal to help give people across the country the best start to their morning. After the recipe check out the fun giveaway I am hosting for National Oatmeal Day.
1cup Quaker Old Fashion Oats
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
a handful of raisins
dash of salt
Mash banana – this is my son’s favorite job. We use a potato masher to make it easier!
Pop on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven. Our recipe made 10 cookies. Bake for 15-20 minutes. I like them well done and mine were cooked for 20 minutes.
