Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! But don’t worry, these breakfast cookies pack a healthy punch so both mom and kids are happy. Breakfast cookies are a great breakfast on the go! Make these ahead of time and grab on your way out the door for a healthy breakfast everyone loves.

Breakfast Cookies - Growing Up Gabel

Breakfast cookies are one of my kids favorite breakfasts (of course!).  This is pretty much the only way I can get them to eat oatmeal for breakfast since they won’t even touch my favorite baked oatmeal.  I love that they are made with honey instead of refined sugar and whole wheat flour.  As long as I put chocolate chips in, the kids have no idea that this cookie is actually hearty, healthy breakfast.

I use a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop to make these.  The cookies don’t really spread so you can place them very close to each other on the cookie sheet, which makes for less batches to bake. Feel free to add raisins or other dried fruit instead of the chocolate chips for an even healthier treat.

    YUMMO! Thanks for this easy recipe. My twins give it 4 thumbs up and I am sure the rest will love them too.

  2. Can you sub aopleesauce for the coconut oil? Don’t have any on hand but have subbed applesauce for reg oil.



    • I’ve never done it! You can really just use whatever oil you prefer. I’d go for a tasteless one like grapeseed. Canola and regular vegetable oil are also tasteless. Melted butter would work, too!

  3. Love this idea! I know my boys will love them at any time of day.

  4. These look absolutely delightful, my kids would just get a kick out of having cookies in the morning! Thank you for sharing. :)
