Strawberry Breakfast Cookies

Yes, these are healthy enough for breakfast!  With all natural ingredients and low sugar, these protein and fibre packed cookies are a healthy option for breakfast.  Portable to eat on the go.

1 cup dates
1 large banana
3/4 cup applesauce
1 tbsp coconut nectar, maple syrup (or raw honey, not vegan)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 cups finely chopped fresh strawberries
2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut shredded
5 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1 tbsp cinnamon
4 tbsp vegan protein powder (I used chocolate)

Preheat oven to 350F.
Soak dates to soften and then add to banana and pulse in a food processor till soft.
In a large bowl mix together date mixture, applesauce, coconut oil and coconut nectar or maple syrup until well combined, then add the strawberries and finish mixing.
In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Add dry mixture to wet until combined. I used my hands, it was much easier.
Form into 2" balls and pat down to about 1/2" thick. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
I used stoneware for one and parchment lined sheet for the other. Made 23 cookies.
