Apple + Cinnamon Breakfast Cookie

Apple + Cinnamon Breakfast Cookie
Apple + Cinnamon Breakfast Cookie

What's great about it

These little cookies make a portable healthy breakfast or snack that go perfectly with your morning tea or coffee. I've combined my apple + cinnamon porridge recipe that contains rolled oats, hazelnut, vanilla + muscatel with a little apple and heart healthy macadamia nut oil to make these delicious cookies. You can pump up the protein by replacing the raisins with omega 3 rich walnuts and make them gluten free by using rolled quinoa in place of the oats. I often stuff a few of these cookies into my cycling jersey to enjoy with my coffee after the ride.

Ingredients

Makes 12 cookies
 

180 g (6 ¼ oz / 1 full cup) smashed ripe banana or apple puree (unsweetened)

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

200 g (2 cups / 7 oz) rolled oats or barley + a little extra for decorating

50 g (½ cup / 2 oz) ground hazelnuts (or if you want to make this nut free - use desiccated coconut)

50 g (2 oz) rasins

50 g (2 oz) dried chopped apple

2 tablespoons raw honey

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

60 ml (2  fl oz / ¼ cup) macadamia nut oil or extra virgin olive olive oil

Method

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C / 320°F (fan-forced).
  2. Combine smashed banana or apple puree, vanilla with the cinnamon, oil and honey.
  3. Add oats, hazelnuts, raisins and dried apple.
  4. Mix together well with your hands, squeezing the mixture together until it starts to bind.
  5. Form into 12 cookies and roll them in some oats for decoration. I like to use a small ice cream scoop for this, but you can also use a tablespoon or your hands.
  6. Flatten slightly.
  7. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until golden.
  8. Cool and enjoy.

Notes and Inspiration

To make these cookies gluten free, use rolled quinoa in place of the oats.

Alternatively you can also use almond meal - however you will need to reduce the banana or apple amount to 60 g.

Increase protein by adding 2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Protein. Both Organic Pea and Native WPI work really well!
