In case you missed it, this is the second post in a two part collaboration series with Rogers Foods and Cooking in my Genes. See our first recipe, Almond Butter Squares, right hurr. I’ve always thought the concept of a breakfast cookie was BS until these Banana Coconut Breakfast Cookies came into my life. The idea of a breakfast cookie always seemed too good to be true. How could I combine the sweet and delicious aspects of a cookie with nutritious food that would keep me full until my 10:00 snack? Good thing my bae, Cooking in my Genes, was full of amazing ideas. We met up and started playing with ingredients and soon we had come together with these cookies. They have all of our favorite things – toasted coconut, banana and Roger’s granola, with the healthy stuff – unsweetened apple sauce, Roger’s oats and ancient grains. These are serious addictive…not to mention delicious dipped in some almond milk!

I was so fortunate to get to go to her house and meet her amazing husband (aka our recipe tester) and her pup Doug (aka my new BFF) and see her envy-worthy closet of flatlay and photo props. But above all else the best part of hanging with Jess is Jess herself. She is as sweet and nice as she seems on her blog and laugh-out-loud funny with a zest for creating amazing recipes and producing quality content for her followers. We could all use a Jess in our lives! Before we could get down to baking business, I had to first cuddle her dog (obviously) then we headed to the grocery […]
