Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Heck, yea!

These are sure to be a hit with the whole family, because who could refuse a cookie for breakfast?

Like egg bites, oatmeal breakfast cookies are simple to make and great for breakfast on-the-go or for packed lunches, so stock up on the ingredients because you’ll probably be making them often!

You will see that the recipe calls for cinnamon chips. These can be found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips.

Cinnamon chips are seasonal in some areas, so if you can’t find them, you can substitute white chocolate chips and add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture.

  1. I try this recipe it’s so easy to follow but I didn’t use the coconut or the blueberry l use cranberry and put sprinkle on top.
    Love it.

  2. Would it be possible to bake them like bar cookies instead. If so, would you still need two pans or all in one? How long would you bake them?

    1. I haven’t tried making these cookies into bars- they may be too soft… If you wanted to give it a try I would suggest using a 9×13 pan and baking for 12 minutes, then take a peek at them every minute or so to see when they are baked through. If you decide to give it a try please let me know how they come out 🙂

  3. I am interested in making this with fresh blueberries and no cinnamon chips. Don’t have the chips and dont mind cinnamon but dont want the chocolate. Do you think it would work? Possibly even swapping out the egg for applesauce. I do this sometimes for vegans.

    1. I have not tried making the cookies with these substitutions so I can’t say for certain. Leaving out the chips shouldn’t be an issue but I would imagine that using fresh blueberries will add moisture and change the texture of the cookies.

  4. I just made these. Although I made some changes. I only used 1/2 cup reg AP Flour. Substitute 1.cup Almond Flour and added 2 scoops of Whey Protein powder. I was so excited about getting them in the oven I forgot the nuts. Oh and all I had was fresh blueberries. Added a few SF chocolate chips.

    1. 5 stars
      I used fresh blueberries.
      Other than loosing a little blueberry juice on cookie sheets- which were covered w parchment paper- worked fine
