Yes, these cookies make an acceptable, wholesome breakfast! You’ll notice that there is zero sugar added to these cookies – the sweetness comes from banana and applesauce. Feel free to add a large scoop of vanilla protein powder to the dough, to increase the protein content of each cookie. While it does take some time to make a batch of these breakfast cookies, you’ll have instant breakfasts for days to come afterwards.
Here’s what you need…
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- ⅓ cup golden raisins
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Optional, scoop of vanilla protein powder
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- ¼ cup unsweetened, dried berries
- Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a food processor, combine the bananas, applesauce, coconut oil, raisins, vanilla extract and vinegar. Pulse until smooth.
- In a medium bowl combine the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and protein powder. Add to the food processor and pulse until combined. Add the coconut flakes, almonds and dried berries. Pulse briefly until just incorporated.
- Use an ice cream scooper to place the dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden and baked through.
