It’s Spring! Berries are finally back in season! So I decided to venture into making these delicious Good Morning Blueberry Breakfast Cookies! They scream “Good morning, sunshine!” all the while being chewy yet soft, subtly sweet and wholesome!
One of my top ten things in life is waking up to freshly brewed coffee. Benjamin always gets up, begins to boil water, grinds some whole bean coffee (usually a dark roast) and then assembles it all in a French Press that we share.
I try – really try to like my coffee black. But most days, I add milk. Heavy cream if we have it. Why deprive myself of something I enjoy!? That’s one of the many things I have learned while on my journey to find balance in a world of food freedom. You can read more about that here, if you’d like.
Anywaaaaaay. Coffee is a big deal in my house. As is breakfast. So, I decided to embark upon making these delightful breakfast cookies! They’re filled with all of the goods like:
- ripe bananas
- peanut butter! (almond butter would work well too)
- frozen blueberries (you can also use fresh!)
Doesn’t that sound like a high quality breakfast cookie? Oh yes. There are a few more ingredients – you can find them down below in the recipe card!
A great thing about these cookies is that you can meal prep them! 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.
I think my favorite part of these delicious little cookies is when you bite into a blueberry and it literally pops in your mouth. They’re deliciously juicy! It’s reminiscent of those little sweet caviar things you would get at the fro-yo place. They always popped in your mouth! Okay, back on track. I just love juicy blueberries, okay?
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.
Good Morning Blueberry Breakfast Cookies
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey (make it 1/3 cup if you want it sweeter)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 pinch salt
Preheat the oven to 350. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add the honey, PB, vanilla extract and egg. Mix together well.
Add in the oats, cinnamon and the pinch of salt. Mix together well. Lastly, gently fold in the frozen blueberries..
Using a cookie scoop, scoop a generous amount of the dough onto a silicon mat on a baking sheet. You should be able to fit 5-6 cookies per sheet. Flatten and form the dough into a cookie shape.
Bake for 15-18 minutes. Let the cookies cool slightly on the pan. Enjoy!
