Brookies

Not quite a cookie, not quite banana bread, brookies have become my family’s solution to breakfast on the run.

I am constantly on the hunt for a filling grab ‘n go breakfast that is nutritious and delicious. We have experimented with a wide variety of granola bars and bread recipes but none worked for everyone.

I created brookies from our list of favorite ingredients. Bananas, oatmeal, dates, and walnuts are all delicious and nutritious. I love that I can send my family out the door with a filling breakfast that has no added sugar.

Make a batch on the weekend and store them in the refrigerator or freezer. Warm them up in the microwave or toaster oven for a quick breakfast or snack.

Instructions
  1. Mash bananas. Pit and chop up dates.
  2. Place dates in a food processor or blender. Pulse until broken up. Slowly add hot water to turn dates into a puree. Add to bananas.
  3. Measure out olive oil and maple syrup. Add to bananas and date puree. Mix until well incorporated.
  4. Measure out and add milk and vanilla to banana/date mix.
  5. Add chopped walnuts.
  6. In a separate bowl, measure out oatmeal, all purpose gluten free flour mix, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Whisk until well incorporated.
  7. Add cranberries to dry mix, mixing until incorporated.
  8. Slowly add dry ingredients to banana/date mixture. Stir well between each addition until incorporated.
  9. With a 1/3 measure, scoop mixture onto parchment paper or silicone mat covered baking sheet. Gently press each brookie down to flatten to about 1/2". They will not spread much while baking.
  10. Bake in a 350 degree oven, until firm and the bottoms are light golden brown - about 15-20 minutes.
  11. Place baking sheet on a cooling rack and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes. Remove from baking sheet, place on cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  12. Store in a plastic storage bag in refrigerator or freezer until needed.
Recipe Notes

*Depending on the type of dates that you use, you may need to add more or less hot water to create a puree. Only use the amount of water that is necessary.
