How does your morning routine go? Does it involve enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee and reading the paper? Yeah, that’s what my dreams are made of! My morning routine usually involves me rushing around, trying to find an ‘acceptable for public’ outfit (I need some new clothes, though don’t we all?) andย trying to find something to eat as I rush out the door.

And while I’d love to say that as a food blogger I wake up every morning and whip together aย fabulous breakfast, truth is, that is far from the truth! Most days my fridge looks bleak at best with a few leftovers or things that require a little more preparation than I have time for in my 2.5 seconds before I need to be out of the house or else I’ll be late.

That’s where these delicious breakfast cookies come in. They’re not only super easy to make, but they’re the perfect on-the-go breakfast! I just grab one and eat it on my way to work (a lot easier to eat than a bowl of oatmeal…in the car…just trust me on this!)

Quick and Healthy Breakfast Cookies {naturally gluten free & vegan}
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 12-16
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups Quick Oats
  • 2 Bananas, Mashed
  • ¾ Cup Peanut Butter
  • ¾ Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
  • ¼ Cup Ground Flaxseed
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mash bananas, then add all the other ingredients and stir (you'll need a little muscle, it's hard to stir, but totally worth it!)
  3. Spoon large spoonfuls onto baking sheets and flatten the tops (I got 6-8 large cookies per sheet). The cookies won't expand so you can put them close together.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes until tops are golden brown. Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container, or freeze in a freezer bag.

    I’ve been trying to set my outfits out the night before to save myself from morning panic, but I never seem to get around to it! Except for this morning. I’m going to a jail with a class and we were told – don’t wear a suit, just dress business casual. Which led to me going – WHAT IS BUSINESS CASUAL?! Because in law school, you pretty much just always kick it in a suit. Anyhoo, this nice breakfast cookie would be perfect for my typically rushed mornings!

    Picture perfect mornings only exist on Sundays in our house :). The rest of the week I too am struggling to get going and usually grab a quick breakfast to eat on the go. I would feel so much better holding one of your cookies in my hand. They look incredible!

    These look and sound delicious! Love all the nutritious ingredients. I find that foods like this are great to throw in the diaper bag to feed my toddler as we are out and about too. So much better than a granola bar or something store bought!

    I have made hobnobs before with oats, but nothing like this. Have bookmarked it as they look really tasty and healthy too.
