Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know what you’re having for breakfast today, but I’m having cookies. Yes, you read that right – cookies!

Now, before you get too excited, no they are not your typical chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies. (Nice try!) I’m talking about these fruity oatmeal cookies that are perfect for breakfast! As if having cookies for breakfast isn’t exhilarating enough, these particular cookies are especially exciting. Why?

Flour-free. Egg-free. Dairy-free. AND refined sugar-free.

These simple, delicious cookies are full of soluble fibre and natural sugars, giving you a great boost of energy to get your body movin’ and groovin’! The recipe literally took two minutes to prepare before baking and the cookies turned out amazing!

Breakfast Cookie

  • 1 & 1/2 cups of rolled oats (gluten-free if desired)
  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup of dried cranberries
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 scoop protein powder (optional) – I add this in when I want to make these cookies more sustainable for breakfast on their own. 

Mash bananas, then add all ingredients together and mix well. Form into cookies shapes and bake at 350F for approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the quality of your oven.

*Unless I add in the protein powder, I don’t find these cookies filling enough on their own for breakfast, but they go great with my juice on days when I need a little something extra. They also make a great snack!
