No Bake Breakfast Cookies? Doesn’t that sound amazing? And I can hear you saying, “Is this really on the plan?” And YES it is! Hallelujah right?
Often times when you start a new diet or nutrition plan do you ever feel like giving up before you even got started? I mean you start out by saying “I am going to start fresh and stay on track this time!” and then by 3pm the same day you are saying “forget this! Just give me the cookie!” Girl, I get it!! I never even cared for sweets that much when I was younger, but the older I get the more my hormonally crazy body craves something sweet!
Or do you have a child who is a picky eater in your home? I mean a child so picky they could live off one or two foods if you would let them? I do too! My youngest daughter could live off of cheese and juice boxes if I would let her, which of course I don’t. But her pickiness does make mornings tricky sometimes to find something she will eat that’s quick and simple so we can get out the door to school on time.
Fortunately, this cookie recipe will suit both my “sweet tooth” cravings and give my daughter a healthy breakfast! It’s fast, simple and super yummy! Plus, my picky eater loves it! Hopefully you and your family will love it too!

Cinnamon Roll No-Bake Breakfast Cookies
Courtesy of Dashing Dish Recipes
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter or nut butter of your choice (I use Justin’s Maple Almond Butter)
2 1/2 tbs low-sugar maple syrup or honey (I use honey)
3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup of protein powder (or additional oats or almond/oat flour)
Pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the nut butter with honey or maple syrup. Microwave for about 20-30 seconds (or until the nut butter starts to just melt), then stir until combined. Stir in oats, protein powder, stevia, salt and cinnamon mixing until everything is completely combined.
- Roll the dough into 7 or 8 even-sized balls, and flatten each ball slightly with your hands, molding it into a cookie shape. Place each cookie on a piece of parchment paper or foil lightly sprayed with cookie spray to prevent sticking. Enjoy cookies right away or place them in a covered container in your fridge for up to 1 week or your freezer for up to 3 months.
Servings: 7 to 8 cookies (1 cookie per serving)
