Cranberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies: Healthy Choices
These breakfast cookies are decidedly healthier than standard cookies. To boost the healthy fiber in this breakfast cookie recipe I also used psyllium powder. I used pure cane sugar in the recipe this time, as I was making them for my daughter but will try substituting part or all of that with a natural stevia/erythritol baking blend next time. She enjoyed the cranberry oatmeal breakfast cookies and they are already a good muffin substitute for her… the swap will make them an even better choice.
- 1/4 cup refined coconut oil melt if hard
- 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup almond milk or milk of choice
- 1 cup quick cook oats
- 1/4 c almond flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup hulled sunflower seeds unsalted
- 1 tbs psyllium powder
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together the melted coconut oil, then beat in egg, sea salt and milk
Add oats, almond flour, cranberries, sunflower seeds and psyillium powder. Mix well, then fold in the chocolate chips until well distributed.
Scoop 2 tbs spoon sized dollops of the breakfast cookie mixture onto parchment or silicone baking mat lined bake sheet. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, until edges are starting to lightly brown.
