Easy, 5 ingredient breakfast cookies made with oats, quinoa and raisins.

Let’s use the word “cookie” loosely today. Because I’m calling these cookies and yet I can’t stop eating the batch of these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies I made the other night. Both call themselves a cookie but they couldn’t be further apart on the cookie spectrum if they tried.

There’s a time and place for legit chocolate chip cookies and there’s a time and place for 5 ingredient, hearty, healthy breakfast cookies too. Let’s talk about the latter.

Quinoa Breakfast Cookies

About 50% of the week my breakfast looks like this:

-eggs

-1/2 a banana

    I made these this morning (it took me literally 90 secs) and I’m pleasantly surprised at how sweet they are despite any addition of sugar. I like them a lot, thank you Gina!
