Blackberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are the perfect, tasty, healthy breakfast treat for home or on the go. Oh-so kid-friendly plus they're naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and nut-free!
Servings 28 small cookies


  • 2 cups gluten-free whole rolled oats ground into flour or 2 cups pre-made gluten-free oat flour*
  • 2 cups whole rolled oats
  • cup ground flax seed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • cup apple sauce
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries may substitute blueberries
  • Coconut oil to grease the baking sheets


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the oat flour, whole oats, flax, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.
  • In a separate small bowl whisk the eggs until well combined. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, applesauce and vanilla extract, whisking to combine. It’s okay if the coconut oil solidifies a bit.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined. Add the berries and stir gently to just combined, trying not to break the berries up too much.
  • Spoon heaping tablespoons of the dough onto 2 greased baking sheets, using your fingers to flatten each cookie.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Serve the cookies immediately, store in an airtight container, or freeze for breakfasts or snacks. To freeze, place a piece of parchment or plastic wrap in between each cookie so they don’t stick together, then seal in an air-tight container or freezable bag for up to a month in the freezer. Defrost or gently reheat prior to serving.


*You can purchase pre-made oat flour at many grocery stores and natural food markets or online. If you are gluten-free be sure to buy oats that are specifically labeled gluten-free.
These cookies are very kid-friendly, but here are some options for resistant eaters:
  • Allow him to select the berry to include in the cookies. Blueberries or blackberries are great choices.
  • Invite her into the kitchen to help make the cookies. A big bowl and big spoon will make stirring fun.
