Cookies for Breakfast? Yes indeed my friends. These healthy gluten free blueberry oat breakfast cookies are like delicious hand held oatmeal and a cookie in one. If you watch my Insta-tories (watch them they are riveting! Promise :)) you know I’ve got an oats obsession. My favorite combo is steel cut oats with blueberries, cinnamon, a drizzle of Naturally More almond butter , and a sprinkle of Purely Elizabeth Granola. I will link you to these delicious treats so you can see how amazing they are.
(NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU READ TO THE END OF THIS POST! I HAVE A LITTLE SURPRISE FOR YOU!)
Back to cookies for breakfast because that’s why you’re here. These cookies are chewy, a little sweet, and have the burst of fresh blueberries. They are gluten free (if you use gluten free oats) and vegan. My husband is the ultimate taste tester and he gave these two thumbs up. They aren’t just “good for being Vegan and Gluten Free.” They are actually yummy cookies he’s excited to take to work this week. Trust me when I say that he does not just eat things because they are healthy. He puts taste above all else.
So, what are you waiting for? These Gluten Free Blueberry Oat Breakfast cookies have fewer than 10 ingredients and you only need one bowl, a spoon and your oven to make them. You can do this and you’re going to love the result.
I have something else you might love as well… a GIVEAWAY!
You might notice that in my insta-stories I’ve been singing the praises of Health Warrior. I was asked recently to participate in their Brand Ambassador program. I only align with brands that take my same healthy whole food approach and Health Warrior falls into that category. Their bars are the perfect treat when you need a little snack and you don’t have time to make something.
Every product they’ve sent me has been full of real whole food and there’s nothing on the label I can’t pronounce. I think sharing is caring so… I am giving 2 of my readers a chance to sample their Vanilla Almond and Pumpkin Seed Bars. They are both super yummy and 2 lucky winners will be chosen. I’ll send you a sample of each. Click below to enter!
Even if you don’t win the giveaway, you can have my discount code. Just go to HealthWarrior.com and use the code FreshFitKitchen30 for 30% off!
Good Luck Everyone!

In this recipe I used:
Gluten Free Blueberry Oat Breakfast Cookies
- 3 tbsp. warm water
- 1 tbsp. Ground Flax
- 1 Ripe Banana, mashed
- 1/3 cup Almond Butter I used Naturally More Roasted Almond Butter with Probiotics
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 3/4 cup Oat Flour
- 1/2 cup Quick Cooking Oats
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1/4 cup Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
- Granola for Sprinkling I used Purely Elizabeth Granola.
- Preheat the Oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the warm water and ground flaxseed and set aside. This is how you make a flax egg for vegan baking. Feel free to use a real egg, but know that I did not test the recipe this way. The flax egg should set for 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl, mix together banana, almond butter, coconut oil, and the flax egg.
- You can purchase oat flour in store or just whiz up some quick cooking oats in your food processor until they are flour consistency.
- Add the oat flour, oats, and baking powder into the bowl with the other ingredients and stir. Scoop out 8 cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
- The cookies won't spread much, so make sure to pat them down to cookie size with your hand. Stud them with the blueberries on top. I found this to work better than mixing them into the batter where they might bleed out all over the tray.
- Sprinkle with your favorite granola and bake for 12-13 minutes. Allow to fully cool on a rack before serving. I individually wrapped these and put them in the fridge. They will keep for the work week and can be reheated in the microwave.

I am actually into intuitive eating and eating what makes you happy and your body feel good. PS I love your recipes. You use a few ingredients that anyone could put together quickly.

Thanks so much Kristel! I really appreciate that. I try to make healthy accessible and I am glad that's coming through in my recipes. Love that you said Intuitive Eating! I've been reading up on it and have been looking for a way to work some of that information into the blog. I feel like we've become a "diet culture" where everyone feels as though they need to put a label on their eating habits. For many of us that's just not a sustainable way to live. Intuitively knowing when we're full is definitely something that disappears when you've dieted for so long and deprived yourself. I am super excited that it's becoming more main stream.

Everything in moderation, plus lots of whole, real food!

I completely agree Caroline. I know people have to follow other diets for health reasons sometimes, but if it's a choice , it's definitely the one I go for. You don't binge as much if you don't constantly feel you're missing out!
