I first discovered breakfast cookies when my oldest was a toddler, and I was looking for a nourishing whole food snack that was easy for us to take on the go. I started researching and experimenting with different recipes, and soon realized that breakfast cookies were totally. amazing.

What Are Breakfast Cookies?

Breakfast cookies look and taste a lot like a dessert cookie, but they have key nutritional differences that make them suitable for breakfast. These little goodies are…

  • Made with whole grains
  • Lower in sugar (some are completely sugar free!)
  • Filled with wholesome add-ins like fruits, nuts, and seeds.

As a mom, I love that these cookies have automatic kid appeal, but they’re also super-nutritious, easy to take a long, and a breeze to make. My kids are older now, but we still make breakfast cookies all the time!

I’ve collected some of the best recipes on the web so you can find some that your family loves, too. Enjoy!
