I like to have breakfasts that can be taken on the go. I also like to get a lot of nutrition packed into a breakfast. So I came up with this recipe. I made it today. My kids were skeptical as they passed through the kitchen. "What are you making?" they would ask with some suspicion and a raised eyebrow. They saw something cookie-ish but no chocolate chips were in sight...but bags of pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, etc. :)

They actually were nibbling on the cookies out of the oven. Not to say they would pick them over Toll House Cookies any day ever, but my daughter said, "Well, they taste healthy but they aren't bad. They don't taste like roots or anything." Haha. A high compliment in my mind for what I was making anyway.

Here you go! They take a long list of ingredients but were quick to make. I will wrap them individually and freeze them.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3 T. honey
  • 1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour (pulse oats in blender to make flour)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup dried cherries or raisins

Mix together the wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in the other. Mix all together with a wooden spoon. Shape into 16 cookies.

Bake at 325* for about 10-11 minutes. Do not overbake. These are a bit crumbly but not too much.

So one cookie will have 1/2 T. coconut oil, 1/2 T. blackstrap molasses 1 T. flaxseed 1/2 T. Chia seeds, etc. Pretty good for a cookie that doesn't taste too bad! :)

Enjoy!

OMG Mama these cookies are so healthy. My aging Dad needs one or two of these daily but eats the otc not-so-healthy from the grocer. Gosh if you could sell & ship these you might make a small fortune. How long of a shelf-life is the big question. So many seniors need that coconut oil and all the other superfoods in there. Black Walnut may also go good in that recipe as they too are loaded with Omega 3's as well as preformed Glutathione.
