If you have a busy schedule like me then you know the convenience of having easy grab-and-go items on hand. Healthy options like breads, muffins and breakfast cookies make hectic mornings a little easier. Plus, my daughter loves baked goods and especially cookies, so it’s a win win!

Let me be straight with you – calling them “breakfast cookies” is really just a way for me to feel good about eating and feeding my family cookies for breakfast. 😃 Although, these cookies have plenty of goodness to start your morning off the right way.



These Hearty Breakfast Cookies are made with a combination of butter and coconut oil. The butter adds that unmistakable cookie flavor we all love, and combined with coconut oil, creates a soft, chewy texture. Plus, coconut oil is really good for you! It’s great for the skin and has anti-inflammatory properties. The oats, nuts, dried apricots, and dark chocolate chips, make these a wholesome, sturdy cookie. And bonus! They taste amazing too, and it’s hard to stop at just one.

Customize Your Breakfast Cookie.

  • Use your favorite nuts and seeds, or leave them out all together.
  • Add in shredded coconut in place of the dried fruit or use a combination of both.
  • Any kind of baking chips will work with this cookie. Butterscotch and dark chocolate chips happen to be our favs.
  • Add extra grains by swapping out the all-purpose white flour for white wheat flour or use a combination of both.

Instructions
 

Preheat oven to 375°F and prepare 2 large sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone mats.

  • Using a large spoon, stir in flour, baking soda, salt, oats, nuts, seeds, and chocolate chips into wet ingredients, until sturdy dough forms and there is no longer any loose flour or nuts.
  • Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, place balls of cookie dough about 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. I was able to fit 12 cookies per sheet pan.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden around the edges and it's puffed and set in the center. Mine took exactly 11 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
