These Good Morning Blueberry Breakfast Cookies are loaded with wholesome ingredients and are the perfect delicious way to start off your morning!

This post was originally published in April 2018 – I’ve since updated the post with new content and photos!

During these unprecedented times, I’ve been working on updating a lot of old content here on the blog. And you know what? Now more than ever we need cookies for breakfast. So just go with me on this one!

Why These Cookies are the BEST!

Well, first of all, as mentioned above, they give you an excuse to eat a cookie for breakfast. 

They scream “Good morning, sunshine!” all the while being chewy yet soft, subtly sweet and wholesome!

So where to even begin? This recipe starts off with mashed bananas which add both a wonderful moist-ness (you’re welcome) and sweetness to this cookie. To help bind everything together, you add an egg, followed by peanut butter and honey. 

Oh, and vanilla extract. Because I’m pretty sure that every cookie recipe in the entire world has vanilla extract. Yup.

So far they’re sounding good, right? Right! Oats are up next as well as cinnamon (such a good flavor booster!) and a pinch of salt to balance out the subtle sweetness.

And finally….my favorite part of the cookies. Frozen blueberries! Yes yes and yes! I absolutely love the blueberries in these cookies. When you bite into a warm one right out of the oven and the juicy blueberries burst inside your mouth – it’s amazing.

Oh, and I gotta tell ya – these are extra good when the final product is drizzled with more honey + a sprinkle of flaky sea salt!

These cookies are absolutely perfect to go with a cup of morning coffee, milk or tea! Or hey, even an afternoon cup of tea. Or why not – a cup of decaf coffee at night post dinner!

These cookies don’t discriminate when it comes to what time you eat them, y’all. And neither do I! 

Ingredients You Need: 

  • oats
  • ripe bananas
  • natural peanut butter
  • honey
  • frozen blueberries (you can also use fresh!)
  • cinnamon 
  • vanilla extract 
  • pinch of salt

Recipe Substitutions: 

During this time, I’m all for recipe substitutions if applicable! Here are few that I think would work for these cookies: 

For the sweetness in these, you could replace the honey with maple syrup.

No blueberries? No problem! You can use blackberries, strawberries or raspberries. Just make sure and dice them into smaller bite size pieces. Oh, and know that they probably, sadly won’t be as juicy as the blueberries. 

I’ve used both rolled oats and old fashioned oats for this recipe and they have both worked.

I haven’t tried it yet – but I would think that almond butter could be replaceable for the peanut butter. And by the way, yes, I did use a more “natural” oily peanut butter. 

Can I Meal Prep These? 

Yes! Make a big batch of them on Sunday and you have either breakfast or a snack prepared for all week. These can be stored at room temperature as long as they’re in a super tight container.

Overall, these are wonderful and soft and chewy and flavorful and not overly sugar-y and wholesome and you’ll feel GOOD and ready to start your day after you eat one. Or two.

Enjoy! Xo.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used a more "natural oily kind)
  • 1/4 cup honey (make it 1/3 cup if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add the honey, PB, vanilla extract and egg. Mix together well. 

  2. Add in the oats, cinnamon and the pinch of salt. Mix together well. Lastly, gently fold in the frozen blueberries.

  3. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, scoop a generous amount of the dough onto a silicon mat on a baking sheet. I like my cookies large so I did about 1-1.5 tbsp. You can definitely make them smaller if need be - just make sure and watch the bake time 🙂 Flatten and form the dough into a cookie shape. You should be able to fit 5-6 cookies per sheet.

  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes or the cookies are golden on the top. Let the cookies cool slightly on the pan. Enjoy! Store in a tupperware container at room temperature.
