Is it just me, or do these cookies remind you a little bit of the tops of blueberry muffins? Despite the fact that they do not taste at all like muffin tops, the fact that they are similar makes me delighted. Do you know what else brings more joy to my life? Despite the fact that they include no refined sugar, a substantial amount of nutritious oats, almond butter, and fruit, these cookies are actually rather beneficial to your health.

It is true that the only thing that is lacking from these cookies is a cup of coffee and a bowl of yogurt since, much like blueberry muffins, these cookies are absolutely deserving of being consumed for breakfast (exactly like my very first breakfast cookies).

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  2. Add everything to a large bowl and mix together with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon until combined (or use a handheld or stand mixer).
  3. Scoop mounds of dough, about 1/4 cup each, onto baking sheets. 6 cookies per baking sheet since they are so large. The cookies won’t spread much in the oven, so gently press the mounds down to create a flatter shape.
  4. Bake for 18-21 minutes until lightly browned on the sides.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Cover and store cookies at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Notes

    1. Freezing Instructions: Cookies freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature, if desired, before enjoying.
    2. Special Tools (affiliate links): Baking Sheets | Silicone Baking Mat or Parchment Paper | Glass Mixing Bowl | Silicone Spatula or Wooden Spoon | Electric Mixer (Handheld or Stand) *optional | Cooling Rack
    3. Bananas: Instead of bananas, use 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1 large egg. The cookies will not be as sweet, so feel free to add 1 more Tbsp of honey.
    4. Gluten Free: These cookies are gluten free if you use certified GF oats.
    5. Nuts: You can leave out the nuts or use any chopped nut you like best. Or sub in dried cranberries, raisins, or sunflower seeds.
    6. Honey: Instead of honey, you can use maple syrup or brown rice syrup.

  1. Add-ins: If desired, leave out the blueberries and add dried fruit, seeds, unsweetened coconut, or extra nuts. I love dried cranberries in these cookies!
