Starting your day with a Healthy Morning Cookie…packed with seeds, unsweetened coconut, oats, dried fruit, nut butter, cocoa nibs and bananas. Cocoa nibs are a great source of plant based magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron.

Yes, this nutrient-protein filled cookie has it all to keep you energized.

This plant-based gluten-free cookie is a little chewy with crunchy seeds and zesty fruit throughout. The banana is all you need for sweetness, and if you prefer sweeter things, you can add a tablespoon of pure maple syrup.

what I love about this healthy morning cookie recipe is, it’s so easy to make

To start, mix some of the seeds with the milk of choice. After a few minutes, it will become a gel-like mixture. This is what holds the cookie together.

Then, mash ripe bananas. A great way to use up those ripened bananas. The riper, the sweeter, yet the calories remain the same. YEY!

Now, mix everything in a bowl; you don’t need a mixer. All you need is a spatula the cookie dough is quickly mixed.

If you have a cookie scoop, use it to scoop out the dough and place it on a baking sheet. The cookies can be placed fairly close together because they do not spread. I like to flatten them slightly by using a fork.

Next, bake until the bottoms are golden brown. You can make 12 larger cookies or 15 smaller cookies. Don’t forget to adjust the baking time.

Banana hack of the day!




How to ripen bananas for baking?

Preheat oven to 300 F. Place bananas with peels on a lined baking sheet and bake until their peels turn black. Cool until you can handle them without burning your hands. Peel and mash.

The bananas are extra sweet, mushy and ready for your recipe. Sometimes the banans ooze during baking, so use a liner to avoid messy cleanup 🙂

more than just a healthy morning cookie

Although I created this gluten-free cookie recipe for breakfast, it makes for a great mid-day pick-me-up snack. I love it after a workout to give me that protein boost or before my tennis for extra energy. Either way, you will love how delicious this grab-and-go cookie tastes.

Having a delicious cookie that not only tastes good but is healthy and satisfying is a win-win all the way. 

I keep these gluten-free healthy morning cookies in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep for up to seven days when refrigerated. Enjoy!
