Breakfast Cookies

Yes, you read that right.  Breakfast Cookies! Here at Addicted to Recipes, I'm a big cookie lover, always have been, probably always will be.  Y'all also know that I also love muffins.  But I've been into shaking things up a bit, and decided I wanted to try some breakfast cookies.  I saw some for sale at the grocery store the other day, so I took the little flyer about the cookies, read the ingredients, did some research, improvised, and this is what I came up with.

Breakfast Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter)
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup oats
1/2 cup coconut (I used medium shredded)
1 cup (combined) of flax seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, raisins, cranberries, pitted/diced dates

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, beat together the peanut butter, honey, butter, egg and vanilla.

In a second bowl. combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, oats and coconut.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just to combine.

Fold in the seed and fruit mixture.  Spoon onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes, remove from oven and cool slightly before moving to a cooling rack.  Store in an airtight container. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

I love these, perfectly easy grab and go snack, especially for my work morning.  I can't send these to school or daycare because of the peanut butter, but we can take them to work.  The kids like them too...which is great for a "healthy" cookie!


  1. What a perfect cookie to have on hand for breakfast on the go! Making these for our upcoming road trip to have a healthy snack with us on the road!

  2. Cant wait to try these! Perfect breakfast for getting three kids to school..grab and go!
