A Sugar-Free Breakfast Cookie Recipe

September 10, 2019

I tricked my girls into eating a healthy breakfast with these yummy breakfast cookies. I did have to add chocolate chips to make them believe they were eating cookies but there’s no added sugar (besides banana) and they kept well in the fridge all week!

I adapted this recipe from Yummy Toddler Food.


1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 3)
1/4 cup creamy nut or seed butter at room temp or warmed slightly
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Put the oats and coconut into a food processor or blender and pulse until you have a course flour.
  2. Mash the bananas in a medium bowl.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Pop the batter into the fridge for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 350.
  5. Line baking sheet with parchment or silpat. Place a heaping tablespoon of batter on the baking sheet and gently press the top down with your fingers or a fork.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are firm – it’s easy to over bake these so watch the end carefully!
