Healthy Strawberry Breakfast Cookies

This recipe was inspired by the California Strawberry Commission. Visit their website (http://www.calstrawberry.com) for information and great recipes using these tasty superfood berries. This recipe also provides a substantial amount of potassium from the strawberries, bananas, and coconut.
FOOD FACT: Strawberries are completely a product of plant breeding. Even before biotechnology (i.e., GMO technology,) emerged, farmers and scientists were crossbreeding plants for optimal nutrition and appearance. It is important to always wash strawberries before cooking or eating them, as bacteria can easily grow in their tiny pores.
