An easy recipe for chewy oatmeal cookies with the same flavors as apple pie! Sweet fruit, cozy spices & no refined flour or sugar! Only 71 calories & perfect for quick grab-and-go breakfasts!
For those four days each week, I set my alarm for 5:30 am (or o’dark thirty, as one of my close friends calls it!) to squeeze in a yoga session, shower, and blow dry my hair. But as a result, I barely ended up with enough time to boil water for tea before dashing out the door… Let alone make a decent breakfast. Staying warm was a much higher priority that winter!
So instead, I usually grabbed a banana to tuck into my backpack. Although a healthier option than the Pop-Tarts and bite-sized powdered sugar donuts that my classmates brought, the banana never kept me full all the way until lunch.
But these Healthy Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies totally would’ve done the trick! They’re full of hearty oats and plenty of cozy cinnamon—but no refined flour or sugar—and perfect for quick grab-and-go breakfasts!
And I’m always a huge fan of wholesome breakfast foods that taste like dessert!
This easy recipe is the next installment in my oatmeal breakfast cookies recipe series. ← Have you tried any of those other ones yet? They have the sweetness level of muffins yet the same chewy texture as traditional “dessert-style” oatmeal cookies. An irresistible combination in my book!
