Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Breakfast Cookies by PixieDustKitchen

These past few days have been crazy. Here in suburban Philadelphia, nearly 600,000 people were without power on Thursday- myself included.  We lost power at school and by the end of the day it was restored- however my dorm didn’t have wifi for another day. (Fortunately the rest of campus did!) My parents were without power for a few more days, and many of my professors still don’t have power. Cleaning up this mess will most likely take another week or so.

So that explains my internet absence for the past few days! Now on to better things, like cookies. That you can eat for breakfast.

I’m the type of girl who just can’t say no to a cookie if I’m around one.  If I could survive on only cookies, I totally would.  However… I don’t think my body or metabolism would like that very much.  So I get by with making healthier versions of my favorite cookies. Like healthy chocolate cookies, or vegan banana cookies, and now these! Breakfast cookies! (Can you tell I’m just a little excited?)

So what makes these cookies so healthy and exciting? NO butter, and NO sugar. At all! The fat in these cookies comes from a combination of peanut butter and coconut oil, and they are sweetened with honey.  My favorite part is that these cookies can use natural peanut butter- even the oily kind that you have to stir, which is honestly my favorite kind.  I used Smucker’s All Natural peanut butter, but you may use your favorite type, or even homemade! Another plus? These cookies are completely wheat flourless! Instead of traditional flour from wheat, these cookies are loaded with oats and only 1/2 cup of oat flour. (Don’t let the use of oat flour scare you! Learn how to make your own here.) To ensure that your cookies are gluten free, make sure to use certified gluten free oats.

Since these cookies contain no eggs, they are very easy to make vegan.  Simply swap Agave, Maple Syrup, or brown rice syrup for the honey. I recommend using agave since it is the most similar to honey, and I have not tested the recipe with any alternative sweeteners so I can’t guarantee results. I do not recommend using sugar, since the use of a liquid sweetener affects the texture of the cookies.

Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Breakfast Cookies by PixieDustKitchen I love these cookies! I mixed in some chocolate chunks and craisins- but I’m recommending raisins when you make these books.  And remember the Nutella cinnamon glaze we made? These cookies are excellent with the glaze. They also freeze very well- I have a bag of them in the freezer to grab when I’m on my way to my morning classes.

      Things are mostly calm now in my area, it’s just mostly tree branches everywhere. (Not sure about the rest of Philly!) Thanks Kayle!

    Yum! I am the same way about cookies. Can’t walked past one without having a bite. Love the healthful ingredients for these cookies. I usually have breakfast standing in the kitchen or on the go. These would be perfect!

    Anytime the words ‘breakfast’ and ‘cookie’ come together, I’m all about it. These look so good, especially since I’m a huge PB fan!

    I am not a huge breakfast person (I know it’s the most important meal of the day), but that might change once I make these cookies! Even I won’t be able to refuse cookies for breakfast and these ones look absolutely scrumptious… would have never guessed these are healthy just from looking at the pictures. Yum!
