Orange Banana Breakfast Cookies

Orange Banana Breakfast Cookies | On Sutton Place

Welcome to February and the new fresh flavor of the month…Orange. I know I’m a few days late but I had a hard time deciding. In the end I went with another citrus because I enjoyed the lemons of January so much. I have a variety of recipes to share including a main dish, of course some desserts and today’s recipe, Orange Banana Breakfast Cookies.

These are a healthy and hearty small cookie…so there’s no need to feel guilty if you have two! They may be little but they are packed full of nutty flavor. I used pecans because I had them in the freezer. I had toasted them before Christmas but didn’t use them all. The  texture from the nuts is perfect with the fruit.

The only thing I didn’t have on hand was the whole wheat flour and the orange. It’s not necessary to use two different flours if you don’t have them in your pantry. I have used different flours in this recipe and the cookies always come out great. My favorite so far is the combo of 1 cup of whole grain oat flour and 1 cup of regular flour.

The original recipe (I’m sorry but I have no idea where it came from) called for 1/4 c. old fashioned oats. If you wanted to add those just leave out 1/4 c. of one of the flours.
