Cookies for breakfast. It’s a thing. Blueberry Breakfast Cookies? Even better.
The thing is, that with hectic mornings come quick and convenient decisions for breakfast -like grabbing a pre-packaged sugary bar and calling it a meal.
But these blueberry breakfast cookies are super easy to make and can be made ahead of time, which now makes them just as convenient.
Can’t imagine it? Wach how easy they are to make in this quick video.
Of course, I’m not saying that making a hot breakfast like Homemade Whole Wheat Waffles or an Oatmeal Breakfast Bar or Homemade Egg McMuffins are not good options, but the reality is that kids LOVE cookies -ok, and me too!
And we parents want our kids to eat nutritious foods, so this recipe is a win-win. The kids love that it’s a cookie and we parents love that it’s nutritious.
Healthy Blueberry Cookies
What I love about this recipe is that it comes together in a single bowl and the oven does the rest! You can prep the batter the night before and bake them while everyone is getting ready.
They are terrific slightly cooled down because the blueberries are gooey like jam, or, they can be eaten cold straight out of the fridge.
Like most of the recipes in our family meal plans, this is one that both adult and kids will love.
The best part is that the ingredients are all natural and zero added sugars so this is one cookie you can feel really good about enjoying.
Did I mention that this cookie is soft, chewy, and super delicious? Go ahead. Print the recipe below or pin it for later. #YoureWelcome
