What’s more fun than eating cookies for breakfast? Eating healthy cookies for breakfast! This easy oatmeal banana bread breakfast cookie recipe will jumpstart your day in a nutritious way. 

Jennifer Garner’s breakfast cookies recipe went viral, so I decided to share my own breakfast cookie recipe. My banana bread and quinoa breakfast cookie recipe was inspired by a recipe in the book Love and Lemons Every Day. Quinoa keeps for a long time in the fridge, so I usually have some ready for a batch of these.

This gluten-free oatmeal breakfast cookie is very easy to make. Here’s what you need: ground flaxseed, water, oat flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt, quinoa, chopped nuts, almond butter, maple syrup, banana, vanilla extract and coconut oil.

Serve these nutritious breakfast cookies for breakfast or brunch with coffee or tea, or as a snack with milk anytime during the day.

  • The number of cookies will depend on how much batter you use for each cookie. 
  • Quinoa and oats are naturally gluten-free, but to be sure, check the packages you buy.

Here’s how to make them: 

  1. In a bowl, combine the ground flaxseed and water. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, flaxseed mixture, quinoa and nuts. Stir to combine.
  3. In another bowl, combine the almond butter, maple syrup, mashed banana, vanilla and coconut oil. Mix until well combined.
