Whenever I notice I have a bunch of over-ripe bananas sitting on my countertep I use them bake up some of my favorite banana treats: moist banana bundt cake, chocolate banana muffins, and these banana oatmeal breakfast cookies.
Cookies for breakfast? Heck, yea!

You will see that the recipe calls for cinnamon chips. These can be found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips.
Cinnamon chips are seasonal in some areas, so if you can’t find them, you can substitute white chocolate chips and add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture.
How to Make Breakfast Cookies
Start by gathering your ingredients.
For this recipe, you will need: butter, brown sugar, ripe bananas, egg, flour, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, walnuts, cinnamon chips, coconut, dried blueberries, and quick rolled oats.
You will also need 2 cookie sheets and parchment paper for lining.
Line your cookie sheets and set them aside.
Using a stand or handheld mixer, beat your softened butter and brown sugar together well in a large bowl.
Then beat in 1 egg and mashed ripened bananas.
Once well mixed, stir in flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.
Add walnuts, cinnamon chips, coconut, and blueberries, stirring until just blended.
Add oats and stir until incorporated. The dough will be very soft.
Next, scoop rounded tablespoons of batter onto lined baking sheets about 1 inch apart.
Bake 11-12 minutes.
Finally, remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 or so minutes before transferring to cooling rack to cool fully.
