Totally Plant Based Quinoa Breakfast Cookies Free Recipe
By Kristin Omdahl

Breakfast needs to be planned ahead and EASY for me, or I skip the meal completely. Yes, I know it is wrong. Yes, I know how important breakfast is supposed to be for my health and metabolism. But if I'm being truly honest, if it isn't grab and go, it doesn't happen.

Which is why I developed this recipe! I wanted to pack in as many healthy ingredients as I could, while keeping the sugar content low, and the nutrients high, and keeping it 100% plant based. There is no egg, no butter and no flour! I am thrilled to tell you that it worked! It is super easy, delicious, and can be made ahead no problem. You can add different spices to change it up, too.

What you will need:

1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup hemp hearts
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup softened coconut manna
1-1/2 cups rolled oats
1-1/2 cup cooked quinoa (great use of leftovers!)
1/4 cup homemade ginger simple syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
1/2 cup nut butter (peanut, cashew, almond or sunflower seed)
2 really ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP cinnamon


Recipe makes 36 cookies. Nutritional information is based on a 2 cookie serving.
