If having cookies for breakfast is wrong, we don't wanna be right. And while we're definitely not down with food shaming (there's nothing "guilty" about any breakfast, be it cold pizza or cold brew), we are major fans of getting our day off to an energetic, antioxidant-packed start. And for that, we're cuckoo for these vegan, gluten-free blueberry breakfast cookies. 

They're packed with whole food ingredients, sweetened only with a banana, and bursting with juicy blueberries in every single bite. Plus... they're cookies. How could they not be your new breakfast fave?

Blueberry Breakfast Cookies Ingredients

The best part about these blueberry breakfast cookies? You probably already have all the ingredients on hand.

On team dry ingredients, we've got fiber-rich rolled oats, protein-packed almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt. The rolled oats are packed with both insoluble and soluble fiber (great for gut and brain health), while the almond flour (aka ground up blanched almonds) is rich in protein, healthy fats, potassium, iron, and protein. Plus, it's gluten-free. (Score.)

Cinnamon pumps these cookies up with delicious flavor and potent blood sugar management: it's been clinically proven to reduce blood sugar fluctuations and therefore help to manage symptoms of diabetes, lower LDL cholesterol, and even reduce inflammation. Can you say wonder spice?

The dry ingredients are combined with ripe banana for sweetness and texture, coconut oil, and the nut butter of choice. Throw in a handful of dark chocolate chips if you wanna – antioxidant-rich chocolate is 100 percent welcome at our breakfast tables.

And then, of course, there's the headliner: blueberries. With their juicy bite and naturally sweet flavor, blueberries are fantastic sources of fiber, vitamins, and minerals including potassium, folate, and vitamin C.

Enjoy these blueberry breakfast cookies warm with a glass of almond milk. Cookies for breakfast have never been so healthy – or mouthwatering.
