Oats are so good for us, they are a  nutritious whole grain that breaks down into slowly absorbed glucose to give you long lasting energy, and that’s the best kind of energy.  So why not load up your breakfast with nutritious Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats in a breakfast cookie?

Don’t these cookies look absolutely delicious? They are thick and hearty almost like a bowl of oatmeal that is baked into an oversized cookie. Every time I make them, they disappear real fast, and I suspect some are even eaten as dessert.

  1. I enjoy making no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies with oats. The whole family loves them and they are super easy to make.

  2. I am all for cookies for breakfast!! Sign me up! These looks so delicious and easy that I can see them on my breakfast table every weekend! I can’t wait to make them.

  3. You had my attention when you put the words breakfast and cookie together. These cookies look amazing, and carrot cake is my husbands favorite. We are definitely trying these. I think they’re perfect because I can make a big batch on the weekend, and we can grab them for breakfast during the week. My children will be ecstatic that they get to eat cookies for breakfast.

  4. Talk about being jam-packed with nutrition. I am so doggone bored with our breakfasts but your oatmeal cookies have carrots and cinnamon in them to boot. That would certainly activate the old tastebuds. I’ll be making them soon.

  5. It’s funny – I still have trouble wrapping my mind around “breakfast cookie” – but I’m fine with muffins! And I look at these, and they’re kind of chewy muffins… I may just need to try these for the family!

  6. Perhaps if I mad these breakfast cookies my daughter wouldn’t give me such a hard time about eating in the morning! Lol! Honey is the only sweetener we can have…perhaps I can sub out the coconut sugar for 1/4 cup of honey??? I think I’ll give it a try!

  7. I love the combination of oats, carrots, and a bit of cinnamon – these sound like the perfect thing to make with my preschooler for his afternoon snacks! We always have rolled oats on hand – we go through what feels like pounds of them for his breakfast already, haha!

  8. I’m a HUGE fan of regular oatmeal cookies so I know these carrot-filled breakfast cookies will be perfect for quick mornings. I can imagine enjoying them with a cup of hot pumpkin-spiced coffee in the fall and winter!
