Made these cookies for the first time and they are already a new favorite!
My family loved these cookies and it was perfect to the point :) Thank you for this awesome healthy cookie recipie.
Is there any alternative for unsweetened applesauce?
Love these - easy to make, delicious, healthy (no guilt!). Great option for breakfast on the go as well as a yummy snack. I think dried blueberries would work too.
Absolutely delicious! My kids love them too! Thank you for sharing all the healthy knowledge packaged in so taste treats! :)
PD. Enjoying the app too!
My daughter (10) loves them! And this is a big compliment - since she is rather into the unhealthy snacks :-D. I can finally put something new and wholesome into the lunch box! Thank you, Sadia!
Oh, these look amazing. I’m going to the Faroe Islands soon where I’ll be needing lots of hiking snacks, so I think I’ll make a batch the day before I go. 🤩
(Testing the comment feature on app. 🤍)
We make these cookies all the time, they're the best!
It was perfect! My husband has a sweet tooth and I always wanted to make some healthy and nutritional sweet snacks that he could enjoy throughout the day. He loved it. Sadia, your work and devotion speak for themselves. Your recipes are excellent. So glad you chose this path instead of becoming a medical doctor! Thanks again🙂
Love it, as you can make it gluten and sugar free!
These are just so so so good! Thank you Sadia! First batch I made was with frozen raspberries, second batch was with frozen blueberries both were so so good!
I made these and froze them to use as snacks for when I was on my period, really lovely and filling too. A bit drier than I was expecting but I think that was the way I did it. Would very much recommend for a healthy feeling snack.
Does anybody know if I could substitute the almond flour for coconut flour. I already have coconut flour at home and I live in a small town where almond flour is pretty pricy.
so yummy! did not use chocolate or seeds. used peanut butter instead of almond cuz that’s what we had. didn’t have patience to form cookies so put everything in a 9x9 parchment lined casserole dish and baked. added an extra 5min of bake time. probably could have used a few more min. bars were slightly crumbly but stayed together nicely. served w a spoonful of coconut based vanilla yogurt. so good! will definitely make again. want to try other nut/fruit combos.
Love this recipe - i tried it three times now and can't get enough of it.
I am not quite sure though why in my cookies the blueberries are all a bit smudged, so the cookies don't look as nice as on the picture. Is there a secret so the blueberries stay frozen longer?
First, love your channel and posts. We use so many of your recipes and your content has been instrumental to helping our family adopt a more plant based lifestyle :) Breakfast cookies - SOOO good! I didn't have chia seeds, and I replaced the fresh blueberries with dried blueberries, and didn't have almond butter so used cashew butter! Soooo good! Thank you!!! Dianne
I would have these cookies anytime for breakfast, snack, or dessert :) Thanks for another great wholesome recipe!
Hi Sadia, Robin & team!
Thank you for your amazing content 😍
Just a question… if I am unable to find *gluten free* rolled oats which the recipe suggests as a gluten free substitute… could I use gluten free flour instead? Start off with the suggested amount of rolled oats and just add until the batter is the correct consistency? I know it probably wouldn’t have the same texture… but I still want to try 😆 Would I still need to add the almond flour as well?
Any suggestion or estimate would be helpful!
Thank you 😊🙏🏼
Loved the recipe!!! I make a few changes because I didn't have all the ingredients but I worked great! pumpkin seeds are the best in this cokies!!
I was stressed one day while making these and forgot the berries! 😄 but it worked out, tasted great! 🙂
I used hemp seeds instead of flaxseeds, raspberries instead of blueberries and pecans instead of chocolate. The pecans were a great choice! I don't like the colour green in my cookies, so I'll substitute pumpkin seeds next time. Perfect amount of sweetness in these. Maybe I'll use more banana instead of applesauce next time (hard to find sugar/ sweetener free).
Perfect for my growing and active kids for breakfast. I make a bunch and freeze them for an easy to grab and go meal. Raspberries instead of blueberries has been our favorite lately.
These were very yummy! Definitely a great nourishing snack :)💗 next time I will put a little more chocolate into them because I only used half of the required amount
I’ve made these twice now and love them! I pack them in my lunches or eat them for breakfast with coffee and some fruit when I’m in a rush. I’m also glad they don’t have any added sugars, they’re hearty and filling on their own without them :))
Wow! These were amazing! I'm a grad student, so quick healthy snacks such as these are my go-to. I gave some to my housemates, and they loved them, even more when they found out the cookies had no added sugar! Will definitely be making these a regular in the house.
I LOVE these but have since been tested and found out I have an almond allergy :( What swap do you think would work for the almond flour and butter?
I'm about to go make 30 of these (writing this to hold myself accountable) and I will check back once I've tried them!
Best. Cookies. Def double batch ;)
I make these all the time and love them!! So easy and delicious!
I love this recipe, these are the only cookies I make! :)
If you are frezzing them do you bake them first or freeze the batter, then bake? Thank you 😊
I think I prefer the apple variant, but these are a very welcome alternative for breakfast muffins!
These are my absolute favourite cookies of yours. I've been making them since you guys first posted it - at least a couple years now I think? I've even had friends ask for the recipe, they loved it! Such healthy ingredients too :)
These cookies are delicious and moist, of which the latter is attributed to banana and apple sauce. It’s amazing that they remain intact despite that the frozen berries thaw during baking. I used bilberries instead of American blueberries, as the former are smaller yet more filled with flavour and colour. Consequently, the batter became a bit difficult to handle whilst shaping the cookies. A trade off that was well-rewarded😋
