My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Simple Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

These cookies are so good! They would be perfect as part of breakfast or as a healthy snack. They are fast and easy to prepare and produce a very yummy soft chewy cookie. They have a great banana flavor and the oats provide the perfect texture. Healthy and delicious, a perfect combination.

Simple Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

2 bananas, mashed thoroughly
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp cinnamon, optional
1 tsp vanilla extract, optional
1-2 tbsp add-ins, optional (raisins, Craisins, currents, flaked coconut, safe chocolate chips, Sunbutter, chopped strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)

Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. Drop into 12  equal mounds onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Form into a cookie shape, flattening as desired. The cookies will not change their shape as they bake. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until they are set and starting to brown on the bottom.
