Jumbo banana-blueberry breakfast cookies, made vegan and gluten-free with oats and coconut flour. Bake in a muffin tin for extra-ease and lots of crispy edges!

Portable breakfast. It makes life so easy, on so many mornings, regardless of whether it’s a weekday, weekend, or holiday. Portable breakfasts that are also easy to prepare, filling, frugal, and scrumptious? Slam dunks.

These banana-blueberry breakfast cookies are just such a portable breakfast.

I love the idea of breakfast cookies, but many recipes emphasize the “cookie” than the “breakfast.” Even when the sugars are unrefined, the fats nourishing, and the ingredients generally wholesome, a checks and balance system should still be at work to create a cookie that will first and foremost provide energy, power and satisfaction throughout the morning. That’s exactly what these tender, not-too-sweet cookies deliver, in spades.

I made these cookies earlier in the week and stowed them in the refrigerator; honestly, they are tasting even more delicious each subsequent day! I don’t like to eat much before early morning runs, but one of these was ideal before my long runs this week, chasing off the early morning edge of hunger and providing much needed fuel along the way.

With summer fruits at their peak, it is easy to sub in your favorites in place of the blueberries, or even the mashed banana. I’m thinking pureed mangoes, peaches, nectarines or apricots would be smashing successes. Enjoy!

Can something be subbed for the coconut oil ? My daughter does not like coconut oil at all.

Hi Cathy--sure, any other kind of oil or fat will work just fine here :)
