These Multigrain Breakfast Cookies are a delicious, healthy, and absolutely legit thing to start your day off.

Multigrain Breakfast Cookies

But first, let me ask you how was your long weekend if it was your case? Did you enjoy the lovely weather and outside activities? Did you catch enough chocolate bunnies? Or perhaps you were that smart cookie having taken a few additional days off resulted in a very long weekend? Please don’t answer this question. I still want us to be friends, but your answer might change everything.

Talking about cookies, these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies are the smart way to enjoy a dessert. Besides, a cookie for breakfast? Isn’t it what you’ve been dreaming of?

One friend of us, while stopping by our place, always brings some multigrain biscuits which we like. They are indeed delicious. However, when last time I finally read the ingredients, not everything could be considered healthy like using margarine or granulated sugar. So I decided to recreate them. But only better and healthier.

The first batch turned out delicious but too sweet and crisp (I overbaked them).

Better Than Just a Dessert!

Though, next time I altered the recipe, and these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies turned out perfect. Being a humble person it’s hard to say this kind of things, but honestly, the result was much better than the original. Instead of butter (I never use margarine in baking) I used coconut oil, and instead of sugar (First time I used brown sugar), I used a little of coconut sugar. It’s not an obligatory ingredient (Dried cranberries or you can also use raisins or other dried fruit give enough sweetness), but I think coconut sugar adds a subtle caramel flavor which is nice.

As you see, these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies are packed with fats and carbs, and they are also high in calories. On the other hand, we’re talking about good fats from the seeds and nuts (Plus, coconut oil is a good alternative to butter).

Practically, one or two cookies for a breakfast will be enough to feel full for a couple of hours. They are nice after workout snack too.

Seriously, who would reject a dessert for breakfast when it’s also a healthy one? I’m telling you guys – you need these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies in your life like you need a bowl of oatmeal or granola.

    Nope, it was raining, snowing and hailing here this weekend :D
    Anyway, these cookies look scrumptious again, Ben! Cranberries and pumpkin seeds make such a great combo. I don’t like sweet things for breakfast, but I would eat these all after lunch <3

    Mmmm…cookies for breakfast! These seriously sound amazing, and like Kelsie I’ll never turn down the opportunity to eat a tasty cookie. I love all of the yummy ingredients you packed into these cookies, too, Ben! Mental note: I need to play around with coconut sugar sometime. Oh, and my sister recently posted a roundup about edible flowers…and I immediately thought of you. Here’s her post if you need some inspiration for all of your flowers! http://pizzazzerie.com/courtneys-faves/edible-flowers/

    Ben – you made these cookies for me right??? Which means I’ll be showing up on your doorstep to pick them up, am heading out now to catch a flight up there ;) And, I didn’t have a long weekend – worked through most of it so all the more reason that I NEED these right?? :)
    Seriously, I so so love that you used coconut oil instead of butter in these! And the nuts and seeds and fruits make these one heck of a healthy treat AND breakfast! Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week, my friend!

    It wasn’t a long weekend here in the states, so I feel totally gypped! Our Easter weekend was pretty busy and not really relaxing, so I hope you got ALL the rest and relaxation for me, buddy! I am looooving these cookies! I mean, one can never go wrong with having a cookie for breakfast, but I love that these are healthy and multigrain!! That means I can eat at LEAST a dozen in the morning… right?! Cheers, Ben!
