These Loaded Vegan Breakfast Cookies are oil-free, packed with whole grains, and minimally sweetened. In other words, they’re a much healthier version of a classic treat that doubles as a weekend breakfast. Move over waffles, Breakfast Cookies are having a moment here.
Rolled oats are whole grains, rich in antioxidants and soluble fiber. They’re a delicious, nutritious base for these loaded breakfast cookies. They also pair well with the coconut, walnuts and (of course) the chocolate chips! And if that weren’t enough, we’ve loaded these cookies up with Flax. So you’ll also get a dose of much needed Omega 3 Fatty Acids plus even more fiber. Who knew we could jam so much healthy stuff into cookies?
How they’re made
Preheat your oven to 350 F and get out your mixing bowl, because these cookies are a breeze to make. Start by sifting your dry ingredients together – the flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Next, add the oats, coconut, chopped walnuts, and cane sugar to the dry ingredients and stir them together.
Now you’re ready to use a small pot to warm up your peanut butter, maple syrup, and plant-based milk. Heat them up on medium-low, until the whole pot is runny, smooth, and easy to mix. When it’s runny, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla, flax eggs, and applesauce. Now you’re ready to pour it over the dry ingredients. Have your spatula handy to fold everything together. Keep folding until you get an even consistency and everything is well mixed.
Make sure it’s cool before folding in your chocolate chips at the very end. If you fold the chocolate chips in when the mixture is too warm, they’ll melt – and no one wants that.
Finally, just scoop them out onto a lined baking sheet, pop them into a preheated oven, and bake for 22-25 minutes. (I know it’s so hard to wait when that delicious aroma starts to flow from the warm cookie filled oven!)
