These everything vegan breakfast cookies are thick, chewy and filled with breakfast friendly add-ins like carrots, coconut and hemp seeds. Perfect for a vegan breakfast on the go.
Breakfast cookies aren’t exactly a new thing. In fact, I made chocolate breakfast cookies while home in Trinidad a few years ago and they were a big hit with my family.
I haven’t made them since but when I was brainstorming more make-ahead breakfasts last weekend, these everything vegan breakfast cookies were a no-brainer.
To be honest, I’m usually much more interested in elaborate breakfasts than breakfasts I can eat on the go. But since I started my new job last month, my attitude towards food has changed quite a bit.
In my work from home days, a meal was only as good as it’s Instagrammability and I’d spend way too much time making sure everything looked just right before snapping a pic.
Now that I eat the majority of my meals from my desk, however, IG worthy meals aren’t really a priority. These days, I’m all about quick and easy food that’s portable and will last for about a week.
And these everything vegan breakfast cookies fit the bill perfectly.
The ingredient list is a little long but the recipe for these cookies is pretty simple and it all comes together in about 30 minutes.
For the mix-ins, I went with carrots, coconut, walnuts, hemp seeds, cranberries and a handful of chocolate chips – hence the name everything vegan breakfast cookies. But don’t feel like you need to copy my madness.
As long as you have around a cup of add-ins, your breakfast cookies should be just fine.
If you make these breakfast cookies, I’d love to hear what you think. Leave a comment and rate the recipe or take a pic and tag it @ExSloth on Instagram!
More make-ahead vegan breakfasts:
- 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water
- ¼ cup agave
- ¼ cup applesauce
- ⅓ cup peanut butter
- 1½ tsp vanilla
- ½ cup spelt flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¾ cup rolled oats
- ⅓ cup shredded carrots
- ¼ cup hemp seeds
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- 2 tbsp chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp raisins or cranberries
- 2 tbsp shredded coconut
- Combine flax and water in the bottom of a mixing bowl and set aside for 3-5 mins until an egg-like consistency is reached
- Add agave, applesauce, peanut butter and vanilla to the flax egg and whisk together until well combined
- Add spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well
- Fold in oats and add-ins until just incorporated and place in the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes while the oven preheats*
- Preheat oven to 375F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
- Once oven is preheated, spoon out about 2 tbsp of dough, roll into a ball and place onto the prepared cookie sheet, flattening slightly with your fingertips
- Continue until all the dough is gone, being sure to place the cookies about 2 inches apart to allow for spreading
- Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are beginning to brown
- Transfer cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool slightly before eating
- If saving for later, allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days

I’ve made these twice now and they’re delicious. Even my husband likes them. He’s not a fan of coconut, so I drop six cookies on the baking sheet and then add the coconut to the remaining batter in the bowl, mix and then drop the remaining six cookies on the sheet. Works great. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Love your blog!
I made them 5minutes ago and they are soooooo yummy omg!!!!
Thank u for sharing the recipe!! I will bake them more often as a breakfast to go thing 😍😍😍😍
