Healthy Breakfast Cookies – Kid-Friendly Too!
There are a few things I DO NOT like for breakfast: namely oatmeal and plain Cheerios. But if you make them into something delicious, I’ll eat all of them! Enter these healthy breakfast cookies. Yes, they have sugar and a touch of butter, but they are packed with oats, Cheerios, and ground flax – all know for recusing cholesterol. So you can sign me up for that reason alone.
Not to mention… this is a great grab-and-go breakfast for the whole family on those mornings where you don’t have a lot of time. We can eat them in the car on the way to drop off the kid at school. I know, not the best practice – don’t judge my life! Lol…
And this is the AMAZING Result…

Healthy Breakfast Cookies
These healthy breakfast cookies are a great quick, grab-and-go breakfast for the kids on those busy mornings. Full of oats, Cheerios, and ground flax.
- 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 4 cups Cheerios
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 2 Tbsp. applesauce
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup ground flax seed
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add oats and Cheerios to food processor (or blender) and pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fully combined and broken up. You don’t need a flour-like consistency, just broken up very small.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, add butter, applesauce, peanut butter, and honey. Microwave for 60-90 seconds, until butter begins to melt, then whisk together until combined.
In a separate small bowl, add banana, egg, and vanilla extract. Mash banana and mix together well.
Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl – oats and Cheerios mixture, ground flax seeds, baking soda, and salt. Mix dry ingredients well to combine.
Pour all wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients. Mix well to combine.
Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop, drop 12 level scoops onto a lined baking sheet. Then flatten and shape them into cookies. They will not spread while cooking.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Allow to cool and enjoy!
