Blueberry breakfast cookies are packed with 9 happy and wholesome ingredients to power you through the day.
- 2 ripe medium bananas, mashed (about 3/4 cup)*
- 2 and 1/2 cups (200g) old-fashioned whole rolled oats*
- 1 cup (250g) any nut butter (I use almond butter)
- 1/2 cup (60g) chopped pecans or walnuts*
- 1/3 cup (75g) honey*
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (190g) fresh or frozen blueberries (do not thaw frozen)
- Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
- Add everything to a large bowl and mix together with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until combined (or use a hand-held or stand mixer).
- Scoop mounds of dough, about 1/4 cup each, onto baking sheets. 6 cookies per baking sheet since they are so large. The cookies won’t spread much in the oven, so gently press the mounds down to create a flatter shape.
- Bake for 18-21 minutes until lightly browned on the sides.
- Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Cover and store cookies at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
- Freezing Instructions: Cookies freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature, if desired, before enjoying.
- Special Tools: KitchenAid Stand Mixer, 5-qt Tilt-Head Glass Measuring Bowl, Silpat Baking Mat, Baking Sheet, Cooling Rack, and Glass Mugs
- Bananas: Instead of bananas, use 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1 large egg. The cookies will not be as sweet, so feel free to add 1 more Tbsp of honey.
- Gluten Free: These cookies are gluten free if you use certified GF oats.
- Nuts: You can leave out the nuts or use any chopped nut you like best. Or sub in dried cranberries, raisins, or sunflower seeds.
- Honey: Instead of honey, you can use maple syrup or brown rice syrup.
- Add-ins: If desired, leave out the blueberries and add dried fruit, seeds, unsweetened coconut, or extra nuts. I love dried cranberries in these cookies!
