These No Bake Superfood Breakfast Cookies are made from bananas and oats include a ton of superfoods, like cacao, chia seeds and goji berries. A healthy, chocolate-filled breakfast cookie!
Whoever said cookies aren’t for breakfast was wrong. Or, maybe they’re right, but today we’re breaking the rules because these breakfast cookies are EVERYTHING. And by everything, I mean they’re so freaking healthy you might as well eat one at every meal.
This is typically the part where I’d chat about my weekend, but I already did that in yesterday’s post. If you missed my weekend fun and Yogurt Lime Carrot Noodles recipe, you’re going to want to check them out.
I suppose I could tell you about yesterday, though I didn’t do anything exciting. I worked at the Juice Company in the morning and, though I’m not a huuuuge fan of working Sunday mornings, the time flew by because we were so busy. Always a plus I suppose! After work I came home and made a recipe involving peaches that I’m very excited to share—I would say it’s “coming soon”, but luckily I’ve gotten pretty ahead in my recipe schedule so “soon” may mean in a month. We’ll see! << the suspense is real.
After photographing the peaches Miguel and I sat in bed and continued wedding planning. <<Just kidding. That’s what we were supposed to do but I just kept browsing dresses while he responded to work emails. Not quite as fun but that’s ok. My plan for this week is to call places and figure out when I can go try some on! I also need to start thinking about flowers, if only to get an idea of how much they cost. I’m clueless about flowers, but lucky for me one of my bridesmaid’s moms agreed to do them for me, so I know she’ll be patient with me (thanks ZoZo/Barb). Last but not least, I ended my weekend with a barre class taught by my friend who went through the barre training with me. WOO. Definitely not as eventful as last weekend, but I was and still am totally ok with that.
These cookies though…
You may already know thanks to this post, but I’m pretty obsessed with superfoods. They’re a really simple way to boost vitamin/nutrient consumption AND they’re really simple to sneak into foods like smoothies and cookies, for example. These cookies include chia seeds, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, and goji berries—So now you see that I was in fact being serious when I said you should eat one at every meal. They’re crazy healthy! First you mash a banana then you add all of the other ingredients and then you refrigerate them and then you DEVOUR THEM.
Breakfast has never tasted so good (or been so chocolate-y or healthy or superfood-filled)!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 cup oats
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp flour of choice
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds

- Chocolate drizzle (optional):
- 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips (dairy free for vegan option)

- Mash bananas in a bowl with a fork; add maple syrup and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine oats, cacao, nibs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and goji berries.
- Stir dry ingredients in with the banana mixture until everything is combined.
- Spoon out mixture onto a baking sheet and then use a spoon or spatula to flatten them out a bit more like cookies.
- Place in freezer for 15 minutes or until cookies hold shape.
- Serve immediately or store in freezer and allow a few minutes to thaw before serving*
