Breakfast Cookie

Breakfast cookie

Okay, can you handle another healthy recipe? I got this recipe from Angie, who got it from Uprising Cookbook. It is yummy, easy and keeps well. The batter is made ahead. It says let sit one hour, but you could let it sit in the fridge overnight. One nice thing about this recipe, is if you are looking for baked items with no dairy or eggs, this has none. It is good for breakfast but really good anytime.

Breakfast Cookies

In a large bowl combine:

4 cup rolled oats (not instant, you can also use gluten free oats)

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or almond flour for a gluten free verson)

1 tsp. salt

1 1/3 cup roughly chopped, toasted nuts (Angie really likes pecans, I really like pistachios)

2/3 cup roughly chopped dates ( I used half dates and half dried cherries)

Mix in a smaller bowl:

1/3 cup mild flavored olive oil

3/4 cup rice syrup

1 cup maple syrup (I use half maple, half agave, you could also use honey)

1  1/3 cup water

Mix liquid in dry ingredients. This mixture will be soupy. Let sit one hour or so. the oats will soak up the liquid and binds the dough together.

Pre-heat oven to 325˚F

Form dough into one inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Press down to 1/4 inch thickness. They do not spread, so you can set them close together on a cookie sheet.

Bake 20-25 minutes, until just firm in the center.

Clarice, Thanks. I will definitely try this recipe. The Strawberry Ricotta Cake is a keeper. DH loved it and that settles it! Love, Abby


I have pieces of that same china! A dear, dear friend of mine's mother gave it to me. It's Forget Me Not by MYOTT/England, right? I've never seen it anywhere else.

This looks really yummy and something that would stick with you for awhile. I hate being hungry an hour after I have had breakfast!

P.S. Love your idea of a Tasha Tudor Day!


Oh that looks so good…

Also wanted to let you know that I am having a give-away to remember
Tasha Tudor ....



These look and sound wonderful! I'm not a breakfast food person, so these would be great. I do have one question though--what is rice syrup? I've never heard of that before. Can I find it at the grocery store and if so what would it be with? Thanks!

Cathy :)

These sound like a "better granola bar"....something my guys love to take on the run.

These sound wonderful...and they will be perfect when the rush starts around here at back to school time!


These are yummy! I love that cookbook. I used grapeseed oil instead of the olive oil, smoother flavor.



That recipe sounds good. I like anything with tosted nuts.
Thanks for sharing Angie and Clarice.

Dear Clarice,

I am going to mix these up for my sweeties to enjoy for breakfast. Thank you (and Angie) for the recipe!
I think I will use raisins (since that is what I have on hand... and add some cinnamon.)
Of course I must tell you that not only does it sound so delicious, but it looks so delicious!!! I love the photo... the cookie, the plate and the tablecloth are all oh so pretty!!!

Love, Paula


Yum! Sounds delish! My husband grew up in a family where breakfast cookies were served routinely! So nutritious and packed with lots of energy to keep one going through the day.

Thanks for the recipe, Clarice!


This recipe sounds very good and would be perfect to take hiking or camping too.

Thank you for sharing the recipe Clarice, and thanks to Angie too.


What a great recipe--who can possibly resists cookies for breakfast? Thanks, Clarice.

I just posted about the upcoming Tasha Tudor event. I'm looking forward to the celebration.
