No excuses, No worries, Have a cookie!

Good morning cookie.

Prep for this bad boy is one bowl, and a masher. In the morning we have 30 minutes to get toddlers and a husband out the door.  This is do-able. This is simple. This is also nothing new.
It is more of the reminder that you need to eat your breakfast with in 4 hours of waking. 
Sure you can do some fasted cardio. But you STILL need to eat breakfast. 
(Saving fasted cardio for another day.)

Skipping breakfast you'll just be screwing yourself later. It can lead to over eating later, and that will make you gain weight. Why not have the largest meal that will help you concentrate, that will give you energy, and that you have all day to burn off? Research confirms that dieters who skip breakfast tend to gain weight over time (Neumark-Sztainer et al. 2006).                     
My nutritionally substantial dash and go breakfast: Cookies! 
Having something with the name COOKIE and tastes like a COOKIE for breakfast is a good thing. You will be less likely to indulge on sweets later.

Try a "cookie" that contains s few simple ingredients like Banana, oats, and peanut butter. 
Then add raisins, nuts, and a few chocolate chips!
This mix below is 137 calories per cookie. Eat 2 or 3 (for home or on the go) with your choice of healthy beverage. Or one with some eggs or fruit (eating at home), but still substantial!
1 cookie alone won't cut it you really want to aim for 1/4 to 1/3 of your calories eaten in the morning.

Bake:15 min

2 VERY ripe bananas
1.5 cups oat meal ( Old Fashioned) 
1/3 cup peanut butter (Natural, organic)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup Jumbo chips (jumbo worked out to put 3-4 chips on each cookie)
* to taste
