Chocolate cookies for breakfast? Yes please! These healthy cookies are packed full of slow releasing carbs, fibre and nutrients, helping to keep you and your family full until lunchtime!
I came across these Superfood Breakfast Cookies and thought that they looked and sounded absolutely delicious.
However I decided to change up the recipe and add some favourite ingredients of mine, along with baking them (the original recipe is for a no-cook cookie).
The results were incredible so I knew I had to share the recipe with you guys!
Made predominately with oats, these cookies are packed full of slow releasing carbs which will help keep you and your little ones full until lunch time. They also contain a bunch of super nutritious ingredients including flaxseed, goji berries, pumpkin, sunflower and chia seeds making these probably one of the healthiest cookies I’ve ever had!
Served with some yogurt and fruit, these cookies make a fantastic and well balanced breakfast and your kids won’t believe their luck when they see all that chocolate!
They’re also great for packing into lunchboxes or as an afternoon snack. I can pretty much eat these cookies at any time of the day!

Chocolate cookies for breakfast? Yes please! These cookies are packed full of slow releasing carbs, fibre and nutrients, helping to keep you and your family full until lunchtime!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 100g / 2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tbsp plain or all purpose flour (can be gluten free)
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp seed and goji berry mix (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and goji berries)
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- optional toppings: dark chocolate and goji berries
- Mash the bananas on a board (this is the easiest way to mash them!) and then transfer into a large bowl. Add the honey and mix well.
- In a separate bowl add the oats, flour, cocoa powder, seeds, goji berries, flaxseed and chia seeds and mix together before adding to the large bowl with the bananas and honey. Stir all the ingredients together until well combined.
- From the mixture roll six equal sized balls. Place them on a lined baking tray or cookie tray and flatten with a spoon to make a cookie shape.
- Bake in the oven at 160c / 320f for 12 minutes.
- Allow the cookies to cool completely before drizzling on the melted chocolate and sprinkling with extra goji berries. Place in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate is solid.
- The cookies will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
