No-Bake Breakfast Cookies

I’ve always liked the idea of breakfast cookies… because cookies for breakfast, you know? It’s a great idea – an option that’s healthy enough to start your day but still tastes as delicious as a treat. I can totally get behind that. But every recipe I’ve tried for a supposed “breakfast cookie” is one I’ve never really wanted to try again because while they might have been healthy, they left a lot to be desired for my tastebuds. Until I tried these, that is.


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup nuts, chopped


  1. Add peanut butter, honey, and vanilla to a large microwaveable bowl and microwave for 20 seconds.
  2. Add chia seeds, oats, salt, chocolate chips, and nuts and stir until well combined.
  3. Roll mixture into 8 balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten balls slightly with the palm of your hand.
  4. Chill in fridge until set, at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
