Jumbo breakfast cookies are perfect for grabbing on the way out the door. Feel free to substitute chocolate chips or dried cranberries for the raisins or any combination of the three for a little different twist.

Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
Healthy, natural, and delicious.

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Low-fat, high-fiber, a great alternative to pre-packaged oatmeal snacks! They make a great breakfast on-the-go or mid-morning snack. Store in an airtight container or the freezer.

Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

These chewy oatmeal bars make a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack.

Clean Banana Oat Cookies

Rating: 4 stars 116
Flour-free and sugar-free cookies naturally sweetened with bananas. You can have great cookies for breakfast or any time of the day without any guilt! A little bonus for me was that my 11-year-old brother loved these, even after they had been in the refrigerator!

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 349
My sister and I love something sweet with our coffee in the morning. We created this recipe to make a wholesome breakfast. I generally double the batch and keep them in the freezer. They taste even better frozen (still soft!). Whole grains, fiber, and protein and no butter! Can it really be delicious? Yes! My kids can't keep their fingers out of the batter. I decided to add it to Allrecipes because everyone keeps asking me for the recipe. Enjoy!

Bacon Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies With Maple Glaze

Rating: 4.5 stars 80
All the flavors that make up the perfect breakfast in one cookie!

Breakfast Brownies

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
This is a hearty breakfast brownie, quick to fix, and yummy. My kids loved it! It's also gluten-free and dairy-free.

Healthier Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 1
This makes a relatively healthy, cake-like cookie that is a bit like a mix between carrot cake and oatmeal cookies. I adjusted a few different recipes to use less sugar and more oats and carrots so that I don't feel too bad eating these for breakfast (which I can't resist)!

Spicy Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
In my efforts to use the abundance of zucchini in my garden I concocted this little cookie. I prefer my oatmeal cookies to have a little jazz, so if you are not a fan of ground cloves, they can be omitted. It's a not too sweet cake-like cookie that is perfect with your cup of coffee or tea.

Easy Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 2
These easy protein cookies are a good grab-and-go breakfast. Packed with kids' favorite ingredients like peanut butter and chocolate chips, they're great for families to have for a quick breakfast! These cookies are ready in 45 minutes, but they are best cold!
