But do they taste healthy???

They do, in a good way. The soft and fudgy cookies are like little chocolate banana muffins in cookie form, and each naturally sweetened treat (no added sugar) is filled with rich chocolate and wholesome oatmeal.

However, I wouldn’t recommend bringing the cookies to a party or serving them to anyone who isn’t really into healthy desserts.

If you’re looking for a good recipe for those occasions, I highly recommend one of the following:

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate No Bake Cookies (shown above)

Banana Cookie Ingredients

The recipe was adapted from my original Breakfast Cookies.

And the cookies can be baked or no-bake – it’s completely your choice!

Not just for breakfast, these are also great to pack in a school lunchbox or serve as a quick and nutritious afternoon snack.

*If you need a keto no-bake snack, try these Fat Bombs.

(Above: Watch the video how to make the chocolate breakfast cookies)

I also made a quick video of the recipe, to show just how easy they are to prepare.

Feel free to add some chocolate chips, shredded coconut, raisins, chopped walnuts or hazelnuts (nutella breakfast cookies??), or anything else that sounds good to you.

Chocolate Breakfast Cookies

These quick chocolate breakfast cookies are easy to make and perfect for breakfast or a healthy snack.
4.8/5 (5)
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 6 – 10 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled or quick oats
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (for banana-free, make these Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Bars)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly sub
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional add-ins, such as mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, raisins, chopped walnuts, etc.

Instructions

  • *For the no-bake version, I like using softened coconut butter because the cookies will be firmer, but any nut butter or allergy-friendly sub can be used.
    If baking, start by preheating the oven to 325 F. Stir together all ingredients, then scoop onto a greased tray. I used a mini cookie scoop. You can flatten the cookie balls if desired. Either chill until firm, or bake 10 minutes and then let cool another 10 before trying to remove from the tray.

    I’m gonna make these tonight! They look fantastic and I think my husband and kids will love them! By the way, I love the wooden bowl you used in the video!
    Question- Why do you have the cookie sheet upside down?

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      It was a while ago that I made them, so I don’t remember for sure… but probably I either greased the wrong side while trying to do three things at once, or I wanted the less-used (less-ugly) side for the video.

      • Kathryn says

        Haha 😀 I can totally understand that.
        I read once that there’s a sciency reason for not having any siding on your cookie sheet- or rather baking certain cookies on sheets without sides. So I thought maybe it was something along those lines. In all honesty, I’m glad it’s not.

  2. Kathryn says

    I made these last night. They definitely do taste healthier, but we thought they were great! I didn’t tell my husband anything about them other than that they were cookies. I was a little nervous he wouldn’t like them very much. He first remarked on the texture, then after trying it was all, “I taste banana!” Then he ate more and said they were delicious 🙂

    DELICIOUS RECIPES KATIE,I made Chocolate Zucchini Bread yesterday…It was hard to make..but still it was so good that I made it in the morning also,Planning to invite Ella tomorrow to try them too.

  4. calgal says

    I made these exactly as written but baked 2 minutes longer so they’d be a little firmer. They came out great! Maybe just a tad too much cocoa powder. I think I’ll try it with 1 1/2 Tbsp next time, then they’ll be perfect!

  5. Isa says

    I liked them personally, I thought the health taste was there but it had a really good aftertaste. I used almond butter and it was very good but the cookie lacked sweetness and moisture overall. Nobody who tried it in my family liked it but as a vegan I loved it.

    “However, I wouldn’t recommend bringing the cookies to a party or serving them to anyone who isn’t really into healthy desserts.”
    You know, I really love that you said this. I made these and really liked them, but it’s true, I wouldn’t take them to a party. In your other recipes, when you say that you would be willing to serve something to anyone, I always trust that, and the desserts I make from your recipes are always a hit. Thank you for serving up a range of healthy recipes for all tastes!

  7. Jamie says

    I was out of cocoa powder, so made them without and they turned out great! I used cashew butter and baked them. Ate the whole batch myself without guilt. So yummy, will definitely make them again.

  8. Giulia says

    Hi, the cookies are really great, I’ve made them a bunch of times, but I don’t understand by my calculations, the calories per serving are very different (129 calories per serving), it would be possibile to have the grams version instead of cups?
    Maybe this is what I did wrong..
    Thanks
