I first had breakfast cookies a few years ago at a small cafe. The little, lightly sweetened, and tender cookies tasted just like a perfectly moist muffin. I was intrigued and set out to make my own version. 

Since having my first breakfast cookie, I have played around with many different flavor combinations, but always come back to these. My blackberry breakfast cookies are made fluffy with oat flour, moist with banana, hearty with cashew butter, spiced with cinnamon, tart with blackberries and naturally sweet with maple syrup.

    1. Karin, Sorry it didn’t turn out great for you! A couple things if you want to try it again–possibly choose a more ripe banana (for moisture and sweetness) and add an extra 2 Tbsp. of maple syrup.
