Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies, great for on the go!

July 7, 2014

I like knowing my family has a great start to their day. Most mornings my daughter and husband  have oatmeal but now that it is warmer they aren’t so keen on having something warm in the morning.  I came across a few recipes for breakfast cookies that didn’t quite have what I wanted and were not gluten free… so I thought I would try and create some of my own with a few nutritious and power packed ingredients. These are great to grab on the go and great for a mid morning snack. They are a soft cookie as they will not be crunchy when finished – can also add more banana to add more moisture. *If peanut butter is very runny, the batter will be a little runnier. Can add a bit more oatmeal if needed.

 Breakfast cookies

  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 2 -3 thawed bananas
  • 2-3 tablesspoons of peanut butter (smooth)
  • ¼ cup of roasted unsalted sesame seeds.
  • 1/4 cup of slices dried apricots or chocolate chips.
  • ( honey to taste) I don’t add any sweetener as I prefer cutting out any extra already.

Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies In a bowl, add the oats, flax and thawed bananas. Mix together thoroughly , add in the peanut butter, sesame seeds  &optional ingredients ( if using). Blend completely so that all ingredients are mixed together well, but do not over blend.. Scoop onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet, flatten slightly and bake at 350 for 15 min. The cookies will be slightly browned and  soft when done. Enjoy! Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies What are some of your quick on the go breakfast options?

Looking for some other options for breakfast?  You can try this one for waffles or this one for granola, all gluten free of course! 🙂

  1. These look so good! They would be perfect to add so many things too! Thanks for the recipe, I really appreciate it!

  2. These look pefrect for my daughter. She loves banana and peanut together so I think I will try these.

  3. They look and sound really good, we are really trying to cut back on some of the gluten in our diet so I will have to make some of these up for my hubby’s lunches!

    1. They are, and so nutritious! They are a soft cookie vs a crispy cookie, so don’t overbake. 🙂

  4. I love that flax and sesame seeds are in this cool breakfast because they are both good for you and provide fibre! thanks!

    1. Flax adds that extra boost – can leave out if need to, but it is part of what makes them what they are! 🙂

    1. I just made up another batch – they go fast around here – also very healthy for you, can add so many things to change it up! 🙂 Hope they enjoy!

  5. Cookies for breakfast, yum! I usually have fruit if I’m in a hurry, if I have time I’ll make a smoothie for the road.
