healthy + gluten free breakfast cookies that are SO simple

As much as I love breakfast, during the week it is not something that I have time to sit down for. My weekday breakfast is either consumed at my desk or on the go. As such I am always looking for quick, filling, and healthy breakfast options. These gluten free cookies from Choosing Chia check all boxes and hold their place in my healthy breakfast rotation.

Favourite Takeaways:

  1. Freeze very well
  2. Does not require AP flour
  3. Just sweet enough

Similar to one of my favourite GF flourless cookie recipes, these cookies are a delightful chocolate chip, oat, and nut combination. Except these ones are chalked full of nuts and seeds. They are also delightfully chunky, slightly chewy and pair perfectly with a favourite beverage.

Bottom line, these cookies are a wonderful addition to a healthy and wholesome breakfast.

alteration notes:

  • removed cranberries
  • used peanut butter
  • increased vanilla extract
  • added flax seed
  • added another egg
  • used honey

approximate times:

  • Prep: 10 + 20 minutes
  • Bake: 11-13 minutes
