Healthy Low-Sugar Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies from The Minimalist BakerI used the blueberry muffins breakfast cookie recipe and subbed chocolate chips for blueberries + made my own applesauce (simply baked 🍎🍎’s with cinnamon leaving skins on at 350F for about an hour or so). Baked πŸͺπŸͺ’s for 30 minutes. Husband gave these a πŸ‘:-)My ingredients: Ground oats + raw almonds (coffee grinder works great for this), baking powder/baking soda, homemade applesauce, flax “egg”, 🍌, coconut oil, maple syrup, no-salt crunchy almond butter, vanilla extract, walnuts, vegan chocolate chips

Chocolate Quinoa Cookies Mash together 2 over-ripe 🍌🍌’s + 4 super soft (pitted) dates (I heat mine in the microwave 20 seconds). Next, mix in 4 TBS nut butter then stir in dry ingredients: 2 cups cooked quinoa, 3/4 cups oats, 2 TBS cocoa powder + 2 TBS hemp seeds. Set batter in fridge a couple hours or overnight (if quinoa is not leftover and batter is mushy). Form the cookies into balls, press down with a fork, spread apart on a sheet-lined baking tray. Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes. 

Breakfast Bars Ok not cookies but yummy & easy breakfast bars made with 1 C oats, 1/4 C ground almonds, 1/4 C coconut oil, 2 T maple syrup, 3 pitted mashed dates + 1 🍌, handful walnuts & choc chips. 

Recipe notes: 

  • I used an immersion blender to blend ingredients until chunky
  • Microwaved dates in a little water 20 seconds to soften 
  • Ground raw almonds in a spice grinder (aka, clean coffee grinder)
  • Pressed into a thin brownie tin on parchment and baked at 325F around 45 min.

Smoothie & Oat Banana Cookies…

My 2-Ingredient Breakfast Cookies with a Fruit Smoothie: Very over-ripe 🍌🍌’s + gluten-free oats run thru the food processor = a yummy 2-ingredient breakfast cookie. I form into balls, press into cookie shapes and bake at 350F until desired texture is reached, about 20-30 minutes. Breakfast Fruit Smoothie: Blend 1 cup soy milk with 1 over-ripe peeled and frozen 🍌, a big handful of fresh berries, 1 peeled orange, handful spinach or kale until smooth and creamy. For extra protein add a spoonful of nut butter or protein powder.

Green Alchemy Smoothie: Creamy, cold, refreshing juice-turned-smoothie…I used ingredients from a local raw food cafe to make this so had to guess on amounts. First I make a green juice blending then straining through a fine mesh strainer about 1-1.5 C water, big handfuls of kale + spinach, 2-3 celery ribs, 2 small unpeeled cucumbers, and small handfuls of parsley + cilantro. Blend this juice with 2 frozen 🍌🍌’s, a tsp desert sun green alchemy protein powder + about a 1/4 C or so of soy milk (doesn’t need much if bananas are over-ripe). I add a handful ice cubes to make colder and 2-3 pitted medjool dates if it needs more sweetness:-).
