We’ve had a long history of breakfast cookies in my house. With a young picky eater — I quickly learned that “cookies” were the way to his heart.

And embarked on a journey to make these cookies as healthy as possible yet deliver that “cookie” appeal.

Over the years, they have morphed and changed with current likes and dislikes.

But the base breakfast cookie dough remains the same.

These Oatmeal Bran Breakfast Cookies are our current favorites. And have been baked, frozen, and sent off to college.

But keep in mind; they are not cookies. They are breakfast… and snacks… and even, yes, midnight snacks. And I don’t feel even a little guilty about snatching one at that 3:00 p.m. lull.

I’ve included some of our favorite add-in ideas, like raisins and pumpkin seeds. But use your imagination! I’d love to hear what you came up with.

  1. Trying these now. Mixture looks more like a thick batter than a dough. Added toasted coconut , pecans, almonds, chocolate chips & raisins. Used avocado instead of veg oil & almond flour instead of whole wheat ..Now to see how they bake up! Wish me luck!

  2. 5 stars
    Wanted to use up a box of bran cereal so Found this recipe. It was easy to mix and bake. My add ins were 1/2 cup coconut, chopped walnuts and raisins. Came out very good. Not too sweet. Thanks for sharing.

      1. I can’t believe it — but I checked on more place and found I had saved it on an old thumb drive. There is now a link to the pattern in the post. Thank you for asking!!
