Superfood Breakfast Cookies

Okay, I know the words “cookie” and “breakfast” don’t usually go together. When people think of cookies, they don’t usually think of a healthy breakfast.

I’m here to change that with this wonderfully nourishing, healthy superfood breakfast cookie recipe.

What You’ll Need to Make Oatmeal and Goji Berry Superfood Breakfast Cookies

This recipe is fairly simple, but you will need several ingredients.

These are the ingredients I used, but you can sub out the seeds for other types of nuts or seeds that you have. You can use honey instead of maple syrup and regular eggs if you’re not vegan.

  • Thick Rolled Oats
  • Buckwheat Flour
  • Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
  • Hemp Hearts
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Goji Berries
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Maple syrup
  • Sunflower Seed Butter (or any nut butter)
  • Vanilla
  • Vegan Egg Substitute

Healthy Oatmeal and Goji Berry Breakfast Cookies

This is a healthy breakfast recipe! Oats, nuts, and seeds provide lots of fiber for healthy digestion. Nut butter and seeds also provide healthy fats and protein for a balanced breakfast.

I like using maple syrup in this recipe for a less processed sweetener option. Another thing I love about this recipe is the goji berries! Goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants.

The Health Benefits of Oats

Oats’ claim to health food fame is mainly based on oats lowering bad cholesterol and adding beneficial fiber to meals.

Lower cholesterol + beta-glucan fiber = SUPER heart healthy. Plus, all that beta-glucan in oats is perfect for feeding the gut microbiome. Beta gluten is considered a prebiotic that can feed and nourish the gut microbiome.
