Quick, Easy {Allergy Friendly} Chocolate Banana Walnut Breakfast Cookies

We are a food allergy family.

My husband and I don’t eat gluten. I also stay away from dairy and soy. My 18 month old son breaks out almost immediately when he eats anything with soy, egg, or peanut in it.

Though I often wish we could go through a drive thru to pick up something fast and easy, {oh, what I would give for a Breakfast on a Bun from Whataburger!} eating out is a real challenge. So we’re always trying new recipes.

This morning’s grape, peach, carrot and cabbage smoothie was an epic fail. My son was disgusted. Thankfully, I came across this sweet breakfast treat from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen. I tweaked her recipe a little, but my son and I really liked it. I hope you and your family do too.

Disclaimer: I am not fancy. I bake with one goal in mind: Feed my family something quick, easy, tasty, and allergy friendly. That said, I do not use more dishes than necessary. I do not mix wet and dry ingredients separately. I dump, mix, cook, and run on to the next thing.
