Three Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Cookies and milk just became a breakfast option with these three healthy breakfast cookie recipes! They are naturally gluten-free and easy to make as you can see in this video.

Pumpkin Pie, Carrot Cake and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup cookies for breakfast? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! The base ingredients for each of these recipes is peanut butter, quick oats, and honey! Plus, you can eat the batter by the spoonful! #Winning!

Can you make these healthy breakfast cookies nut free?

Absolutely! Since a lot of schools are a nut-free zone and with the abundance of nut allergies, you can make any of these breakfast cookies with a nut-free alternative, like sunflower butter.

Can you make these healthy breakfast cookies vegan?
Yes and yes! If honey isn’t your sweetener of choice, swap it out for maple syrup and boom! You’ve got healthy vegan breakfast cookies.

What I love is that these recipes are a one-bowl-wonder; meaning, you don’t need a mixer or fancy equipment. The one-bowl method also means minimal clean-up! Woo-hoo!

These recipes are sure to be a winner for your household. In fact, that’s the only kind of recipe you’ll find in any of our family meal plans. We all know that mealtime success starts with a good plan, and that’s exactly what we do.

The MOMables Classic Meal Plans have family-favorite recipes, meal prep sheets to help you get organized and a complete shopping list! Yes, we love it too!

The Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Cookies get their name from the pumpkin spice in the recipe –which is great any time of year. The pumpkin puree makes these incredibly moist and the cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg give them that delicious familiar taste we all know and love!

The Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookie has a hearty, chewy texture that’s perfect if you love carrot cake –but these cookies are much healthier! There are no processed ingredients here and are the ideal morning fuel with some pieces of walnuts and raisins.

And finally, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookie is the best way to eat both cookies and chocolate for breakfast! Seriously though, they taste indulgent, but thankfully they aren’t!

Can I use frozen bananas to make healthy breakfast cookies?
Overripe bananas are best for this recipe; which means that even the frozen ones all the way in the back of your freezer work great. So, if you haven’t gotten around to using them for those smoothies… yeah those.

Can you freeze these breakfast cookies?
In case you can’t decide which one to make first, and because each recipe yields 12 cookies, you might have to turn to your friend, the freezer to help out with storage since these recipes are freezer friendly!

So you can eat, freeze, and repeat! Wrap any leftovers, if there are any, with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, thaw them out and eat cold or at room temperature or warm in the toaster oven or microwave.
