Quinoa Breakfast Cookies with Oatmeal and Raisins

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

These easy 5-ingredient quinoa breakfast cookies are made with oats and raisins. They’re the perfect on the go healthy and easy breakfast treat.

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.

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

Quinoa Breakfast Cookies with Oatmeal and Raisins are healthy, quick and easy!

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

-eggs

-1/2 a banana

-berries of some sort

-nut butter of some variety drizzled over the fruit

-1 or 2 slices of bacon

-<insert some carby goodness here>

Sometimes it’s a Van’s waffle, sometimes it’s a piece of Ezekiel bread but from here on out it might just forever be these.

5 ingredients (we’re not counting salt & vanilla because what self-respecting person who has ever set foot in a kitchen doesn’t have those on hand?!), 15 minutes and you’ve got healthy breakfast cookies on your plate to fill your carb loving void.

Try these easy quinoa breakfast cookies with oats and raisins for a healthy, gluten-free treat.

If you’re expecting soft batch chocolate chip texture, you’ve got another thing coming to you. These ain’t it.

If you want something healthy you can chow down on with your cup of coffee and not think twice about how many you eat, I got you, kid.
