Cookies for breakfast - that sounds like an absolutely silly idea? If you're thinking Oreos or Whoopie Pies, you're absolutely right. But there's another way: with the right ingredients, cookies become an absolutely delicious - and healthy - breakfast alternative that you should definitely give a try.
These cookies are refined sugar-free, vegan, high in fiber, and the perfect breakfast snack.
That's why we love them so much:
- Breakfast approved. Rolled oats, almonds, maple syrup, nut butter: the ingredients might as well end up as porridge in your breakfast bowl and are absolutely breakfast approved.
- Convenient. Ready in a jiffy and all you need is a bowl, a baking sheet and an oven. Once cooled, the cookies will keep in an airtight container for several days. Not only a hit as Breakfast Cookies, but also perfect as a post-workout snack.
- Freaking delicious. The cookies taste intensely nutty and deliciously sweet - without any granulated sugar.
The star of the cookies is our Almond Candy nut butter - the forbidden creamy almond butter with coconut blossom sugar and bourbon vanilla - which serves as a filling for the cookies. Not only does it taste like roasted, sweet almonds, but it's also high in fiber and satisfies for a long time.
Sweetest breakfast temptation: Here we go!
Stuffed Almond Candy Breakfast Cookies Recipe
Ingredients for about 10 cookies
- 10 tsp Almond Candy Nut Butter
- 200 g oats
- 2 tbsp flour, for example buckwheat, almond or spelt
- 70 g ground almonds
- 1 tsp backing powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp plant based milk, for example almond milk
- Place Almond Candy in a small bowl and freeze for one hour.
- Preheat oven (electric stove: 180°C/fan: 160°C/gas: see manufacturer). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Combine rolled oats, flour, ground almonds, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan and add to dry ingredients. Add maple syrup and vegetable drink and mix to form a sticky dough.
- Divide dough into about 10 equal portions. Tip: It is best to form the dough into a roll and divide it. Flatten each piece of dough in your hand, place a teaspoon of Almond Candy in the center, enclose with the dough and shape into a ball. Place cookie balls on baking sheet with plenty of space between them and press down lightly.
- Bake cookies for about 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Pull baking paper with cookies off baking sheet and let cool on a cooling rack.
You can customize and change the cookies according to your taste. Swap out Almond Candy for a different nut spread and add your favorite ingredients to the cookie dough. For example, how about:
- Cocoa powder, ground hazelnuts instead of almonds and Wholey Sh*t as a filling.
- grated coconut flakes plus dried mango in the cookies in combination with Coconut Crush
