{no flour} breakfast cookies {gf,v}

Cookies for breakfast? you ask. Um, cookies all the time...and definitely for breakfast. I reply. Especially if they're these cookies. Bananas, almond butter, nuts, cranberries...all breakfast worthy and delicious. These are more pancake-y than cookie-y, but totally healthy. No flour. No gluten. No animal stuff. Just a whole lotta yumminess. So stack 'em up high and enjoy. No maple syrup required.
