Check out the video below to see how these breakfast cookies are made. You can find more of my videos on my site. Youtube channel.
- Coconut oil I recommend using refined coconut oil in these breakfast cookies as unrefined coconut oil can have a very strong taste. It is possible to use butter, but we haven't tested it – abandon a comment below if you try!
- Fame- We made this recipe with white whole wheat flour, but you can replace it with a 100% all-purpose flour or a 50% all-purpose / 50% whole grain blend. Gluten-free and other alternative flours have not been tested.
- Carrot grated carrots will help soak some vegetables into your breakfast (be sure to use finely grated carrots on a grater); You can replace it with grated zucchini (squeeze moisture before adding) or grated apple. If you give them a chance, drop us a comment below!
- ground flax This ingredient not only adds protein to biscuits, but also helps them maintain their structure. I wouldn't recommend leaving it out.
- Desiccated coconut We recommend using sweetened desiccated coconut to give the biscuits just the right amount of sweetness.
Step by step instructions step
1. Wet materials- Melt the coconut oil in a microwave-secure bowl. Mix the applesauce, vanilla, honey and eggs.
NOTE- I love this large mug measuring cup
2. Dry materials– Measure the oat flakes, white wholemeal flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder and flaxseed and mix well with the moist ingredients. Fold in the carrots, coconut, dried cranberries and pecans.
3. Create cookies- Using a measuring cup, roll ¼-cup portions on parchment paper and use a spoon to shape them into round "biscuits" about ½ inch high. The dough will be soft.
NOTE- I am in love these sheet pans!
4. jaw Bake the breakfast cookies for 11-13 minutes, until the tops arrive back on touching.
I haven't tried to replace the egg so I can't be quite sure. If you try, please abandon a comment below because I'd love to hear how it went for you!
Yes! You can substitute white whole wheat flour in a 1: 1 ratio for all purposes. I haven't tried gluten-free or other alternative flours.
I bet you can, but I haven't tried. My family devoured these very quickly! I would freeze it wrapped in parchment and store it in a meal prep container for up to 2 months.
- Allow to cool completely, then store breakfast biscuits in an airtight container; Place parchment or parchment paper between the cookies to keep them from sticking together.
- Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
These cookies are likely freezer friendly, but we haven't tested them. We will save them as follows:
- Allow to cool completely, then wrap loosely in parchment paper, place in a freezer bag or larger container for meal preparation.
- Freeze for up to 1 month.
payment my favorite food prep containers!
Would you like to translate it? Here are some (untested, but great sounding) ideas.
- Carrot Replace with grated zucchini (suppressed) or grated apple
- Coconut- Skip that, but you can add extra sweetener to make up for this.
- Honey- swap with maple syrup
- Cranberry- replace with raisins or dried blueberries
- Walnuts Swap for pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds or walnuts
- Chocolate- Consider adding ¼ cup of mini chocolate chips. White chocolate chips can be good too!
