Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies. Start your morning off with a powerful combination of superfoods with this delicious breakfast recipe!

Do you have a favorite family food that you make to start your morning off right? Maybe eggs and sausage or your favorite bowl of cereal? For my family we love to start our morning off with oats. Sometimes we will have plain old fashioned oatmeal (with some fresh maple syrup and brown sugar on top. YUM!), sometimes we will make oatmeal muffins, but most of the time we scarf down oatmeal breakfast cookies. Blueberry breakfast cookies are our favorite, but from time to time we have been known to get all crazy and shake things up some peanut butter & banana oatmeal breakfast cookies.

It’s easy to see why they love them so much, tell them they get to eat cookies for breakfast and they are sold.

I have to admit that I have ulterior motives though. I love starting their morning with oats, they are full of beneficial nutrients that keep my family at their best!

Some of the benefits of oats are:

They help enhance the immune system’s response to infection.

They can help stabilize blood sugar (very important for my daughter with type 1 diabetes)

They can lower cholesterol.

They are full of fiber and keep everybody’s digestive track running smoothly.

Now it’s easy to see why I love them so much :) For more info on the benefits of oats and some great recipes, check out page 32 of the latest Healthy Living Made Simple digital magazine.

You can find a great selection of oats at your local Sam’s Club (my favorite place to bulk shop for my favorite super foods) near the cereals.

What’s your favorite way to eat oats?

*Update – A few people have let me know that it came out too dry. That can happen if you buy a no stir version of almond butter as there isn’t enough oil and the almond butter is very thick. You can remedy this one of two ways. You can add 2-3 tablespoons of almond or melted coconut oil or you can reduce the oats by a 1/2 cup.

    Is there any substitution that can be used in place of the almond butter? I am allergic but would like to make these if there is a alternative to the almond butter. Thank you

    Are Quaker Oats Quick one-minutes Oats OK for this recipe, or I’m thinking that not one-minute oats would be better? Thanks,
    Dave

      I used regular old fashioned oats for this recipe. I haven’t tried it with the one minute oats, but I think it should be fine since there is no liquid called for in the recipe :)

    • Jordyn says

      I think you could definitely use strawberries. I would use a paper towel to absorb as much of the water as you can before you bake, but it should work great :)

    I have everything in the bowl now except the blueberries. It seems way too dry. Can I use frozen berries or dehydrated berries?? Would I need to thaw them?

    • Jordyn says

      So sorry that I didn’t get to help you in time :( what brand of almond butter were you using? Was it a no stir version? You can use both types of blueberries, I just prefer using fresh. If you use frozen ones, you should thaw them in a colander to make sure there isn’t extra water in the recipe :)

    I had to go on and make something with the oats, almond butter, and brown sugar. It would not have worked for cookies. It was so dry they would not even stay together. It was more like crisp topping texture. So I added protein powder, egg, milk, baking powder, dash of salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Made them into bars and they were delicious when they were warm. Not sure how they will be when they are cold. I will take them to our son next week. I froze them except for the one we sampled.

      I’m so sorry that I am now just replying, I have been raveling and had limited access to the computer :) I’m sorry that they didn’t turn out well for you and that you had to improvise and make something else. I have updated the recipe to account for the different types of almond butter. Some no stir versions don’t have enough oil in them and can result in a dry cookie. You can either add oil or reduce the oats to compensate for the lack of oil in the almond butter :)

    I am not sure the brand I used. It was Marathan I think or something close to that spelling. We are very pleased with the bars I made and I have made them again. Thanks for replying.

  6. Charlotte Moore says

    So glad the recipe I was going to make turned out too dry. Since I added the other ingredients and made a bar out of it it is a total success. Everyone that has tried it loved them. This is the first time I ever started with a recipe and completely changed it. This is a keeper for my family. I did not use blueberries. I added coconut and pecans to the top. YUM!!
