Blueberry Breakfast Cookies #SundaySupper

Blueberry Breakfast Cookies - Healthy and Gluten Free

Is it just me or is summer already flying by? Okay, so it’s not technically summer yet, but it feels like it. And with this weekend being Memorial Day, it is the unofficial start to summer.

May has been a whirlwind. I’ve gone to events, worked on my novels and screenplays, bought flowers, blogged, met friends for dinner, and now I’m heading to my first concert of the year next weekend.

I bought tickets to see Taylor Swift in the middle of November. LAST YEAR. It seemed like it was forever away and would never come, and yet, here it is.

Time is a cruel mistress. The winter months drag and drag and the summer months fly by. I can never get enough done or utilize my time well enough. I end up rushing through things and not enjoying them or not doing a good enough job.

I only do that, though, because I feel like time and life and summer are passing me by. It’s a vicious cycle and one we all deal with and often struggle with.

So, as difficult as it is and as much as I will fail, I am trying to use my time wisely. To slow down and enjoy life. Take my time and do things well. Not let the day get away from me so I have to skip my walk outside. Not work so hard that I sit down at 9 o’clock at night with an hour of email and social media ahead of me.

I challenge you all to do the same thing. Take a few moments every day to enjoy life.

You can do it while you make these Blueberry Breakfast Cookies, and definitely while you eat them. Healthy, light, and featuring one of my favorite summer fruits, these gluten free cookies are easy to make and will get your day off to the best start. They are full of nutrition and filling enough to leave you satisfied but not weigh you down.

They are just how I want my summer to go.

Blueberry Breakfast Cookies #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 12 cookies


1 ¼ cups old fashioned oats (gluten free, if necessary)

¾ cup quick cooking oats (gluten free, if necessary)

1 cup oat flour (gluten free, if necessary)

3 tablespoons chia seeds

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

¾ teaspoon baking soda

1 cup almond butter

½ cup pure maple syrup

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large egg

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

¾ cup walnuts

2 cups fresh blueberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl, stir together almond butter, maple syrup, oil, egg, and vanilla bean paste until well combined.

Add both kinds of oats, oat flour, chia seeds, cinnamon, and baking soda and stir until incorporated. Add walnuts and blueberries and mix until distributed.

Using a regular sized ice cream scoop, scoop batter onto prepared pans. Cookies will not spread much during baking, so they can be close together on the pan; just don’t let them touch.

Bake cookies about 15 minutes, until golden brown and mostly set. Cookies may be stored in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to three months. Thaw at room temperature about an hour or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

    It isn’t just you, time is flying by at an insanely fast pace. Your breakfast cookies would be great to take a few moments to slow down and enjoy them with a big cup of coffee.

  2. Liz says:

    I’m all in favor of cookies for breakfast! And yours look wonderful!!!

  3. Good advice. I tried to institute a day long walk – 3 – 4 miles, just to relax with my own thoughts. It worked for about a week, and then it became 3 times a week. Last week I didn’t walk at all. No yoga. No me time until 11pm at night. I’ve got to treat that time as important as my blogging / social media time. Thanks for the reminder. And I love your breakfast cookies – I love the whole idea of breakfast cookies 🙂
