These superfood breakfast cookies are definitely not your usual cookies. First, cookies for breakfast. Second, look at some of the superfood ingredients in here:

I’m not a health nut (have you seen my blog?) so I’ve had to Google the nutritional benefits of these ingredients and I was impressed! And they taste great too.

Another great thing about this recipe (the cookie that keeps on giving, eh?) is it’s fully customizable, similar to my Basic Granola Recipe.

Don’t like almonds? You can use pecans.

Can’t find goji berries? You can use dried cranberries.

I used agave syrup because that’s what we had on hand but you can certainly use honey or maple syrup.

The whole idea is to craft the perfect breakfast cookie for you. Just follow the ratios and you should be fine.

And it’s really simple to make – no mixer, no food processor, just a bowl and a baking sheet. See how it’s done by watching the video.

See how easy that was? And these cookies keep really well too. Just make a batch, store in an airtight container and you’d have a week’s supply of grab-and-go breakfast cookies that’s delicious and good for you.

Hope you enjoy these superfood breakfast cookies!

Notes

  1. You can substitute any of these ingredients with your favourite things, or whatever is available. For example, if you don't have goji berries or almonds, you can use dried cranberries or pecans.
  2.  You want to make sure to stir thoroughly so that everything is evenly and completely moist.
  3. You can use a cookie scoop or a spoon and just roll the cookies using your hands. Just make sure to pack them into a tight ball.

Hi Jolina, These cookies look amazing, but I want to know if anyone tried making them without any form of added sugar i.e. minus the syrups/ honey etc. Please let me know.

Hi Amtul, this recipe is very customizable so you can use whatever sweetener you like. Or not use any at all.

I made your breakfast cookies with walnuts, dried cranberries and some other things I needed to clearout from my cupboards and I was pleasantly surprised how it came together. I wanted to make granola but thought the grandson might appreciate cookies more and he did. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you Jolina.

My family loves these breakfast cookies. Delicious, healthy and easy. The kids don't care for goji berries but I add whatever we have on hand that I know they like and it helps with food wastage too. Thank you for our new family favorite. Have a good day!

That's great Deborah! I love how these cookies are so versatile. I'm baking some tonight, with ingredients leftover from other recipes like pecans and walnuts :) Have a good day as well!
