Good morning friends!

As if Monday wasn’t already the most hated day of the week, it’s cold and rainy. But I’m thankful that I have these breakfast cookies to cheer me up. Aren’t they just the cutest?! Those blueberries speckled throughout make me smile. And knowing that they’re pretty go for you too— zero refined sugar!— makes me happy. 🙂

I made two batches over the weekend to share with friends and have them for the week; wrap them up individually and grab one on my way out the door or even before/after a workout. Truth is, over the next few months I’m really focusing on what I eat. I don’t eat horrible but I haven’t been as strict. Plus as the days get longer and the nicer weather starts rolling in, I find myself spending less time in the kitchen which means I need healthy snacks I can grab on-the-go.

Cookies are my jam, so cookies for breakfast I’m totally down with. I have another variation on my blog, but today’s are packed with blueberries.

These cookies are so easy to throw together. All you need is 1 bowl and 7 ingredients (8 in you add in nuts!) The cookies only take about 15 minutes in the oven, so these can even be quickly made during a busy week without much of a hassle.

Eat the cookie by itself. Crumble it up over yogurt. Smear some peanut butter (or any nut butter) over it. Heck, even dunk it into milk. Either way you’re winning with these cookies!

feature

  • Prep Time: 15m
  • Cook Time: 15m
  • Total Time: 30m

Ingredients

  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 1/3 cups quick oats (not whole oats)
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (any brand works)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries (or any favorite fresh fruit)
  • Optional: 1/3 cup roughly chopped walnuts (or any preferred nuts)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in order listed into a large mixing bowl. Using a large rubber spatula or wooden spoon, mix until all the ingredients are combined. The dough will be thick and sticky.
  3. For easy handling of the dough, spray your hands with cooking spray. Grab 4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) of dough, roll into a ball and drop onto the cookie sheet. Slightly flatten the tops into desired thickness— the cookies will not spread in the oven.
  4. Bake for 14-15 minutes, depending on thickness until edges are very slightly brown. These took exactly 14 minutes. Baking longer than 15 minutes will result in a dry cookie. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet. Cookies stay fresh at room temperature for up to 1 week. Enjoy the cookie by itself, crumble it up over yogurt, smear some peanut butter (or any nut butter) over it.

Additional Notes

  1. Make ahead: Raw dough can be frozen for up to 3 months— bake frozen cookie dough balls for 1 extra minute. Baked cookies can be frozen up to 3 months, then thawed overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. These are gluten free if using certified GF oats.
  3. Using Spark Food Calculator, each cookie (without walnuts) is 107 calories and 4.4g protein.
