Begin your day with a nutritious Gluten-Free Morning Cookie bursting with seeds, unsweetened coconut, oats, dried fruit, nut butter, cocoa nibs, and bananas, providing a wholesome boost to your morning routine.


This nutrient-rich, protein-packed, gluten-free cookie offers everything you need for sustained energy.

Created with plant-based goodness, this gluten-free cookie boasts a delightful chewiness complemented by crunchy seeds and tangy fruit throughout. Sweetness is provided solely by ripe bananas, but for those with a sweeter tooth, a tablespoon of pure maple syrup can be added to add extra sweetness.

Mornings are a busy time of the day. Whether you are rushing out to work or getting your family ready for the day, breakfast can be challenging. 


Preparing a nutritious breakfast ahead of time, such as these morning cookies, can significantly reduce morning stress.

This easy gluten-free cookie recipe is brimming with crunchy seeds, fruits, and certified gluten-free oats, resulting in a scrumptiously flavorful treat!

A cookie is often thought of as a delicious sweet treat. This morning cookie is more than that. The fiber, protein and antioxidants in this healthy recipe make this gluten-free cookie nutrient-dense and satisfying.

These plant-based cookies are an excellent way to start your day. Another couple of cookies you may enjoy are the 5 Ingredient Keto Walnut Cookie, or the Gluten-Free Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Begin with mixing some of the seeds with milk.  After a few minutes, the seeds will become a gel-like mixture. This is what holds the cookie together.

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

Finally, 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.



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 bananas ooze during baking, so use a liner to avoid messy cleanup.

Energizing Plant-Based Cookies for Anytime Nourishment

While initially designed as a gluten-free, plant-based breakfast option, this cookie recipe doubles as a great mid-day snack to boost your energy. Whether enjoyed post-workout for a protein kick or pre-tennis for added stamina, its convenience makes it an easy choice.

Having a delicious cookie that’s both nutritious and fulfilling is a definite win-win scenario.

I store these gluten-free, wholesome morning cookies in an airtight container in the fridge, where they stay fresh for up to seven days. Enjoy!
