Grab-N-Go GF Vegan Breakfast Cookies
I don’t know how mornings manifest in your household, but in ours they can range from easy-peasy to DEFCON 5. On those hectic days of meetings and insanity, we reach into the freezer for healthy, GF Vegan Breakfast Cookies. Here at Flour Farm Central, we have three different kinds ready to grab-n-go: banana, apple and pumpkin. We love them that much! Easy to make, easier to enjoy.
Healthy New Level of Yum
Guilt free, GF, breakfast never tasted so delicious. This recipe is low in sugar, calories, carbohydrates and sodium. Its also cholesterol, oil, and gum free. Bonus – these cookies are vegan! Yes! Best of all, the adaptability makes every member of your family happy. Choose your base. We offer mashed banana, applesauce or pumpkin ideas. Choose your spices, sugar and add-ins. We like to use coconut nectar and honey, (Dave was a vegan bee-keeper.) We prefer mini chocolate chips in our banana cookies and currents in our apple cookies. You decide what’s best!

Equipment: Digital Scale (preferred), Cookie Sheets, Mixing Bowls (2), Whisk, Sturdy Mixing Spoon, Measuring Spoons & Cups, Cutting Board, Sharp Knife, Unbleached Parchment, Cooling Rack
Before You Dive In – Prep: please read!
- Mash bananas, if using
- Chop nuts to desired size
- Chop dried fruit to desired size, if using
- Line cookie sheets with unbleached parchment
- Move oven rack to center
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 C)
Step 1: Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Step 2: In a separate large bowl, stir together the fun part.
Step 3: Add the dry blend to the fun part and mix with a sturdy spoon until fully integrated.
Step 4: Use a 3/4 oz or #40 scoop to drop cookie dough onto unbleached parchment. Space about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Use damp fingers to gently press the cookies down a bit. Take care not to flatten them like pancakes!
Step 5: Bake in the center of a preheated 350F/177C oven for 13-14 minutes. Longer cooking time or convection setting will create a crunchier bite.
Step 6: Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooing rack. Cool completely before storing.
To store: If storing on the counter, cover loosely or cookies will become very soft. Eat within two days. We store them in the freezer and take them out as needed. They thaw quickly, and taste great cold!
