Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Written by COA Nutrition Team On June 12, 2020

Healthy oat breakfast cookies made with carrots, apples and banana.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 cup oats, dry
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 cup, grated apple
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips, semisweet (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with grease-proof paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate smaller bowl beat the egg. Add the melted coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract and stir well. Add this mixture to the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  4. Add the grated carrot, grated apple and mashed banana and again stir until everything is well mixed together. If using the chocolate chips, add now.
  5. Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch sized balls. The dough should make approximately 20 balls. Place each on the cookie sheet and press down lightly with a fork.
  6. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
  7. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Seasonality is your best friend

A great tip to reduce the whole cooking and prepping process is to whip up meals with vegetables that are in season. Browse the farmer’s market. It will save you lots of time, as in-season vegetables are so much easier to find, and much, much tastier! Why search in three supermarkets for that elusive eggplant in the springtime, when you can use what mother Earth chose to bestow on us!/p>
