Cookies for Breakfast – Is there anything better than warm cookies in minutes that you can call a BREAKFAST?? These hearty and thick cookies, made with oats and bananas, are one of the best ways to get back to enjoying breakfast again.

With soft centers and slightly crispy edges, the air fryer is a perfect way to test out a new method to make a cookie

Great way to use ripe bananas – Those bananas that have sat on the counter for so long do not always need to be turned into banana bread! 

Simple Ingredients

  • old fashioned oats
  • ripe banana
  • baking powder
  • melted coconut oil
  • milk
  • a sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  •  mini chocolate chips or mini dark chocolate chips
air fryer recipe ingredients in a bowl.
  1. Add old-fashioned oats and bananas to a bowl and mash them with a fork.
  2. Add baking powder, coconut oil, and milk and mix well. Add ground cinnamon and chocolate chips.
  3. Place parchment paper in the air fryer basket.
  4. Pour batter onto parchment paper and spread to about 4″ in diameter and 1/2″ thick into a cookie shape. If your cookie is not cooking in the center, you made it too thick.

Would we make this Air Fryer Breakfast Cookie Recipe again? 

These cookies aren’t overly sweet; they are very simple and mild. I also didn’t add protein powder because 1/2 a scoop seemed like it could be omitted.

Peanut butter powder might be tasty in these, though.

Since they are basically “no sugar added” they don’t quite give me the sweet treat I need when it comes to a dessert but are fine for morning food. Your brain may be a little disappointed since the title “cookie” denotes something sweeter. 

You can always try this Giant Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookie with actual cookie dough or TikTok Air Fryer Peanut Butter and Jelly for a sweeter take on using the air fryer in recipes.

Expert Tips

  • You can substitute coconut oil for olive oil (but it will change the taste), grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, or unsalted butter (recommended for flavor but not for health). 
  • Adding a scoop of protein to a breakfast cookie is common, although we personally like to leave it out. 
  • Substitute a banana for 1/4th cup applesauce or canned pumpkin.
