Sick of your usual morning oatmeal? Try these easy oatmeal banana breakfast cookies. They are perfect for on the go, school lunches, or a post-workout snack. Combining the complex carbs and sugars from the bananas and oats with the healthy fats from the coconut oil and coconut flakes with the protein from the collagen powder, these cookies are satisfying and healthy. In addition to adding protein to the cookies, collagen powder may also improve joint health and improve hair, skin, and nails.

- ¼ cup coconut flakes
- ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
