Cookies for breakfast? You betcha!
These breakfast cookies are chock full of healthy and natural ingredients. Plus they are super easy to put together so I'd say it's a win win. You can't go wrong with these. They're filling, healthy and taste AH-mazing! And they're perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
I'd love to take credit for these gems but alas, I cannot. I got this recipe from the cookie queen herself. Sally from Sally's Baking Addiction. She's the best.
So gather your ingredients and get to work.
- 2 cups quick oats (not whole oats)
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup apple butter
- 1 large banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cups shelled pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a stand up mixer. Mix until all ingredients are combined. The dough will be stiff.
- Take 1/4 cup of dough and drop onto prepared baking sheet. Slightly flatten the tops to desired thickness. The cookies will not spread in the oven.
- Bake for 15-16 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Allow cookies to cool completely.
This recipe makes about 9-10 cookies. It can easily be doubled to make a big batch.
