Mornings are always hectic. A million things need to get done, kids {or dogs} need to be fed and no one can ever find their shoes. Blueberry Breakfast Cookies are the perfect solution to morning craziness! They are loaded with healthy oats and fresh blueberries, and do no contain any refined sugar…..

These Blueberry Breakfast Cookies came about out of sheer desperation!! After 5 or 6 days of crackers and apple juice I decided to give oatmeal a try. Success!! I then tried scrambled eggs. Fail!! Hmmm…so I made pancakes and dropped a few dark chocolate chips in them as they cooked {so I could avoid using syrup}. Success! Wait, what? I can’t eat any animal protein? Please tell me this is not permanent!!!!

So I grabbed my oats since they are safe…and I had already added applesauce and almonds to my oatmeal so they must be okay. Better skip the refined sugars and eggs, just in case. Success!!

How to make Blueberry Breakfast Cookies

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set them aside.

Mix the ground flax seed and milk together in a small bowl, set aside…..

Start your morning off right with these healthy and delicious Blueberry Breakfast Cookies! COPYRIGHT © 2017 COOKING WITH CURLS

These Blueberry Breakfast Cookies are very similar to my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies. They are soft and almost gooey on the inside, with a nice crunch from the almonds and oats. They are not overly sweet, and the blueberries add a burst of flavor so you won’t miss the sugar.

Notes:

  • These cookies are gluten free if you use gluten free certified oats.
  • These cookies are vegan if you use maple syrup. Honey would also be delicious.
  • If you do not have fresh blueberries, substitute frozen. {Do not defrost}
  • I used blanched/slivered almonds for the added crunch. Pecans or walnuts would also work.
  • Substitute any nut butter for the almond butter if you prefer.

I divided my breakfast cookies and placed them in zipper top bags. The ones to eat over the next few days, and the ones that will hang out in the freezer until needed. Success!! 😉
