Banana Breakfast Cookies

Cheap Eat Challenge: Watch as our family of 6 eats, or tries to, on $6/day.

I'd say it's time for another breakfast cookie, wouldn't you? I mean, my life would pretty much be meaningless without them, right?

These babies are low-sugar, low-fat, and they contain a fruit. Add a few walnuts, and you'll be set.
