Fact: I eat cookies for breakfast.  A giant healthy cookie, some fruit, and Greek yogurt on the side.  I eat clean breakfasts during the week so I can splurge on the weekends. Life’s all about balance, right?!

These breakfast cookies are so easy to throw together.  All you need is 1 bowl, 30 minutes, and a few healthy ingredients that are highly interchangeable based on what you like.  Start with your base ingredient: oats.  You’ll want to use quick-cooking oats in this cookie recipe.  The quick cooking kind are more “powdery” than whole oats and will give the cookies more structure.  I tried the cookies using whole oats and while they tasted the same, they were falling apart.  Use quick oats. And make sure they are certified gluten free if you are gluten intolerant.

Did you know? You can make your own quick oats. See my note at the bottom of the recipe.

What else is hiding inside these breakfast appropriate cookies?  A few binders: almond butter, apple butter, and 1 mashed banana. If you aren’t a fan of almond butter, you may use peanut butter or sunflower seed butter. Guess what? You can make your own almond butter at home!

Breakfast Cookie Ingredients

Apple butter (which is not the same as applesauce) gives today’s cookies an unbeatable flavor.  I buy my apple butter at the farmer’s market, but my favorite store-bought apple butter is Musselman’s.  It is available in practically all grocery stores in the peanut butter or applesauce aisle.  You could use applesauce instead, just know that the cookies will not be as moist since apple butter is denser in texture than applesauce. Mango butter, pumpkin butter, or any fruit butter would be fine substitutes as well.

Sweetening the cookies (besides the apple butter and mashed banana) is 1/4 cup of maple syrup.  I’ve used both pure maple syrup and sugar free maple syrup in these cookies before. Purists may slap my hand for using the sugar free kind, but I just buy what’s on sale. Feel free to use honey instead of the syrup, keeping in mind the cookies would no longer be vegan.

The rest of the ingredients are completely up to you!  Sometimes I add dried cranberries, 2 Tbsp of ground flax, raisins, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, honey-roasted peanuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, or dried apples.  Today I used dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, golden raisins, and regular raisins.  I also love adding chocolate chips, but I was being good today.  😉

As long as you keep the add-ins to about 1.5 cups, you’ll be fine.

The cookies take about 15 minutes in the oven.  They don’t spread at all, so be sure to shape them down into large discs before you put them in the oven.

The batch only yields about 9-10 cookies, depending how large you make them.  Sometimes I make a double batch in advance and keep them in the freezer for a quick grab n’ go breakfast or snack. They bake up to be quite hearty and dense; one cookie usually keeps me full for hours.  The complex carbs from the oats fuels some amazing workouts, too.  Try one before hitting the pavement or gym!

They are man friendly too. :) Kevin likes to spread peanut butter on top of them and dunk them into milk.  Putting peanut butter on top of nut butter cookie… I knew I was marrying this man for a reason!

Breakfast Cookies

Yield: 9-10 large cookies

Print Recipe

These healthy morning cookies are so simple to throw together. They are ready within 30 minutes. The recipe may easily be doubled to make a big batch. *Gluten free* if using certified GF oats. Refined sugar free and vegan.


  • 2 cups quick oats* (not whole oats)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond butter, peanut butter, or sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/4 cup apple butter*
  • 1 large banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed (optional)


Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Combine all of the ingredients into a large bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer). Mix until all of the ingredients are combined. The dough will be quite stiff.

Take 1/4 cup of dough and drop onto prepared cookie sheet. Slightly flatten the tops into desired thickness. The cookies will not spread in the oven.

Bake for 15-16 minutes or until edges are slightly brown. Allow to cool on the cookie sheets completely.Cookies stay fresh at room temperature for 1 week. Cookies can be frozen up to 3 months.

Additional Notes:

*Be sure to use quick oats in this recipe.  Quick oats are more finely ground up whole oats, so they are slightly powdery.  They are sold right next to the whole oats.  You may not even notice there are two kinds of oats in the first place!  You may make quick oats at home - simply measure 2 cups of whole oats and pulse in the blender or food processor about 5 times.

*Read the text in the post above about using unsweetened applesauce or other ingredients instead of apple butter.

    Found these puppies on pinterest while I was searching for a healthy, on the go breakfast and I just made them moments ago. They are FABULOUS!!! I can’t get over how amazing they taste! I had some homemade apple butter from last season, just lying around, and now I know how I’m going to use up the last of it! I added chia seeds, 2 tbsp, and flax seeds, 2 tbsp, and then some cranberries, sliced almonds, chopped dates, chopped dried apricot, and mini chocolate chips. Although these are so sweetly satisfying that I’m going to omit the chips next time. These really are the most amazing sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan breakfast item that I’ve tried so far, and I’ve tried out a lot of flavors. Props to the chef!!!!

    Thanks so much for this recipe!

    I’m still relatively new to baking, so I apologize if this is a dumb question.
    Are they supposed to be mushy? They aren’t like dripping and falling apart, but they are not crunchy. Just making sure I’m doing this right haha.

    Practice makes perfect, so I will keep trying anyway!

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I thought you might enjoy knowing that I have been baking them for a friend who is hiking the Appalachian trail and have been mailing them to her in her food pick up boxes. She loves them and carries them in her pockets for energy boosts. I wrote today to ask if she was bored of them and wanted another recipe and she responded, “don’t fix what ain’t broken.”

    These have been so well received that I plan to move on to try other recipes from this blog. I appreciate your level of detail in the recipe and suggestions for variations.

    Again, many thanks.


    • Sallyreplied on June 7th, 2014 at 11:33 am

    This is one of my family’s favourite recipes – my 2-year-old daughter LOVES having cookies for breakfast! I’ve passed this recipe on to at least 3 toddler moms that I know.

    My big change is to substitute 1 cup of ground almonds for 1 cup of oatmeal; I like the texture better that way. (I also use sunbutter for peanut butter, as we have peanut allergies in the house.) It’s amazing when we can get real apple butter from the farmer’s market; Musselman’s is full of HFCS, and the taste just isn’t the same.

    Wondering out of curiosity why you consider honey non vegan. I am lacto ovo

    honey non vegan. Please take this as curiosity not criticism. I respect all people in their choice of diets and lifestyle this is just something new to me.



    • Oliviareplied on December 14th, 2014 at 11:32 pm

      Vegan technically means that you don’t eat any animal-products whatsoever. Since honey is produced by bees, it is considered an animal product. My sister is a vegan but she eats honey anyway, so I’m with you on that :)

    Hi Sally, I’m making these this weekend and I can’t wait! I recently discovered pb2 which is ground up peanuts that you add water to and make your own peanut butter. It has 45 calories in 2 tablespoons as opposed to 190. Do you think if I used the pb2 it would mess up the cookies because the oil from the peanut butter would be missing? Thank you, love love love your website!

      Hi Bethany, no I do not suggest powder peanut butter. You need the oil in the peanut butter.

    I made these cookies tonight for the first time, and I LOVE them! I only had about 3/4 cups of my organic peanut butter left so I just added about 1/4 cup more apple butter….they still turned out great! I also used honey instead of maple syrup.
    I added pecans, coconut, flax seeds, and a mixture of dried cranberries, plums, and cherries. These will definitely be baked regularly in my home.

    I made these last night and we had one each for dessert… Then my 3 year old had 2 for breakfast today. He was so happy to have “cookies” for breakfast and I was so happy to give him healthy ones! Thanks for the recipe :) P.S. I subbed sunflower seeds for pumpkin seeds (we are carving pumpkins and toasting pumpkin seeds tomorrow night!), and added the mini chocolate chips. I also didn’t have apple butter so I used unsweetened applesauce and increased it to 1/3 c and they are delicious! Don’t seem dry at all :)

    Yum!! My three-year-old and I made a batch of these this afternoon and they were delicious! I was really nervous that they would taste banana-y (even though you said they wouldn’t in the comments :o) ) since we tasted the dough and you could taste it there, but the finished cookies just taste like cookies! So good. I’ve been trying to perfect homemade granola bars for months and while they’re always edible, they’re never quite what I’m looking for. I think breakfast cookies is the answer! Thanks!!

    I just made these cookies and they’re in the oven! I tweaked the recipe a bit, left out the cinnamon, banana, and apple butter. Instead I used 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, 1 T coconut oil, and 1 tsp vanilla. I subbed the maple syrup for the honey and used homemade almond butter! And then i added dried cranberries and walnuts. :) Can’t wait for them to come out of the oven! I work at 5:30 in the morning so I never have time for breakfast. I’m looking forward to have something quick and tasty everyday this week. Thanks for the recipe!

    Sally, I just made your Breakfast Cookies for the first time and they are AMAZING! Great texture and bursting with flavor! I followed your recipe with all ingredients listed using the almond butter, pure maple syrup, flax seed and added 1/2 C chocolate chips. Of course we couldn’t wait till breakfast to try them :) After my husband took one bite he said, “These would be great to take when I go fishing!” I also love that they truly bake just as they are placed on the cookie sheet and do not spread. Right now my daughter and I have your Peanut Butter Cup Blossoms dough chilling in the fridge for our next baking round. I love your website and I’m excited to try even more of your recipes. Thank you so much for your informative step by step instructions and including pictures.

    I was searching for a clean breakfast cookie recipe to replace the granola bars I was eating every morning. I have officially found the one! These were delicious and satisfying. I made a few changes based on my taste, but it is an easy recipe and the add-ins can be changed with no issues. I used sunflower seed butter, sunflower seeds, unsweetened flaked coconut, “plum amazins” (diced dried prunes) and chopped dried apricots as my add-ins. Everything else (apple butter, maple syrup, banana, etc.) stayed the same. I had to put the extra cookies in the freezer so I wasn’t tempted to eat them all day! If you download the Myfitnesspal app it allows you to search for the recipe and will calculate all of the nutrition info for you without having to do it individually. I was also able to change the ingredients that I altered before the calculation. I bake often, but never review recipes…this is a must try! Thank you!

    So these just came out of the oven…WOW! I used a cookie scoop so I ended up with about 24 small cookies. If they even make it to breakfast, I’ll be surprised. I did follow the recipe, but swapped some of the add-ins: I used mini chocolate chips, chopped pecans, dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, and whole flaxseeds. I underbaked them just a tad so they are actually still pretty squishy in the middle but solid on the edges. It’s almost like a portable bowl of oatmeal. I also used half almond butter half peanut butter. Seriously folks, make these. You will not be disappointed.

    A quick note. I’ve made this many times, they go over well with the entire family. This last time was the easiest and most uniform. I whizzed the banana, maple syrup, pumpkin butter and peanut butter together thoroughly in the stand mixer, added the quick oats until combined and finally added my mix ins (dried, unsweetened coconut flakes, golden raisins and chopped pecans) with a quick stir. Made for much more consistent cookies than dumping everything in the stand mixer at once. Thought it might be worth mentioning to others who really enjoy this recipe!

    I just made these today, nearly exactly as written. Little heavy on the peanutbutter taste, it overwhelms everything else, but truly delicious. I’ll be using this as the base for a healthy breakfast and snack for all of us and the kids. Gonna try adding more orange zest to compliment the dried cranberries I added. Also going to experiment w/ adding cocoa powder, but not sure if that’s going to work w/out making them too bitter. Great job, thanks for sharing this with us.

    Dear Sally,

    Thank you for the recipe!
    My mother-in-law wanted cookies with her coffee first thing in the morning. 
    Your cookies have more nutrition in them than store bought cookies.
    She enjoyed them! so did the rest of the family!
    This time I am going to use dried apricots and prunes to add a little more fibre!

    I have used your recipes more than once!
    Many thanks,
