Breakfast Cookies - Fill the Cookie Jar

Fill your cookie jar with healthy breakfast cookies made with blueberries and bananas. #fillthecookiejar




Cookies for breakfast; why yes of course!





Breakfast Cookies

This month's theme for Fill the Cookies Jar is Halloween, well my cookies are not even close to Halloween.   Although now that I am writing this I realized that I should have put some pumpkin into these cookies... maybe they could be classified as Halloween then. 

I made these cookies to bring to my hubby as he has been eating cookies for breakfast.  I thought I would try to make something that may be healthier.  I also had some wild blueberries that I wanted to use up so this recipe was perfect.  Although I did think these cookies are yummy, not to sure my hubby did as they are a softer cookie and not crunchy the way he likes them. 

Even though they don't follow this month's theme for Fill the Cookie Jar, I think these are a great cookie.  Seeing school started in most places over the last couple of weeks, these cookies can be sent with your little or big ones and you will know that they are starting their day pretty healthy.

I adapted this recipe from How Sweet It Is - Blueberry Breakfast Muffins.

Fill your cookie jar with healthy breakfast cookies made with blueberries and bananas. #fillthecookiejar


Ingredients:
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup coffee flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoon buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup toasted coconut

Directions:
Preheat oven 350 degrees.

In large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients together (first 8 ingredients).  In a smaller bowl, mix the bananas, eggs, coconut oil, butter, buttermilk, and vanilla together.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until well combined.  Stir in blueberries and coconut.

Drop cookies (about 2 tablespoons each) onto nonstick baking sheet approx 2 inches apart.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool on baking rack.

Cookies will keep for about 5 days in sealed bag or container.  I have kept them in the fridge for about 2 weeks.

  1. I think you could segue into fall and Halloween with the healthy breakfast theme to counteract all the calorie laden and nutrient free cookies and treats they will be having.

  2. What is "coffee flour"? Is it something purchased or processed at home?
