No Bake Breakfast Cookies


These No Bake Breakfast Cookies are easy to make, healthy, packed with protein, and simply delicious. They can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes and stored for up to two weeks.

These No Bake Breakfast Cookies are an absolute favorite in my house. So they are made ALL the time.

No Bake Breakfast Cookies are easy to make and perfect for busy mornings or when you need a healthy, delicious snack

Whenever I get a little lazy to make breakfast or if I know I am going to have a hectic week ahead of me. I whip up these guys.


Easy and delicious, these No Bake Breakfast Cookies only take a few minutes to make!

They are really similar to my Nutella Energy Bites. I eat 2 or three of them for breakfast (okay sometimes it’s 4) and I always love snacking on them when I get that mid afternoon dip. They are packed with protein so they really keep you feeling full and powered up.

Full of healthy and tasty ingredients, these No Bake Breakfast Cookies only take five minutes to whip up!

The thing I love most about them, other than the fact that they only take 5 minutes to make, is that you can change them up all the time. Sometimes I add only chocolate chips to them (I love dark chocolate chips). Other times, I add some almonds or some pecans. You could really mix in anything to them. Perhaps you could add a few pumpkin seeds, or some dried cranberries. Honestly, everything works well with them.

No Bake Breakfast Cookies are so easy to make!

All you need to make these deliciously healthy No Bake Breakfast Cookies is some rolled oats, some creamy peanut butter, a little chia seeds, and some honey (or maple syrup).

All you do then is, place all the ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix. Then choose your desired extras (I added choc-chips and chopped almonds for this batch) and mix those in.

Then roll the mixture into little balls and place them on a baking tray (preferably line with baking paper), press them flat a little, and pop them into the fridge (or your mouth).

No Bake Breakfast Cookies... delicious and healthy snacks for on-the-go!

I like to keep a whole bunch of them in a container in the fridge for whenever I need them. It makes for an exceptionally easy and healthy breakfast.

    They look delicious, and easy to make. They wouldn’t last two weeks in our house!

    Do you have the nutrition information? These look like something my husband would love. However, he is on a strict diet, counting calories, protein, carbs, and all that stuff. If I cannot come up with this information he will not look at the recipe or make this.

      Hi Dawn! There’s lots of websites where you can add a recipe in and they’ll come up with the nutritional information for you. Personally, I like using My Fitness Pal. :)

    I love no bake recipes, especially in the summer :)

    Are the oats cooked before you mix them? Or soaked and mixed in raw?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on August 31, 2016 at 7:11 am (#

      I used “raw” rolled oats. Neither cooked nor soaked. :)

    Can you substitute almond butter for peanut butter. My child is allergic to peanuts. 

    • I Heart Naptime posted on September 15, 2016 at 7:22 am (#

      That should work! Just be careful of the consistency, you might need to use slightly less almond butter depending on the brand. :)

    I was looking for a breakfast idea like this one! Easy, delicious for a great start of the day. Thanks for the recipe, Jamielyn!

    This looks like it would be great for making a large batch and freezing. Have you tried freezing them before and if so, how did they turn out?

    • Jamielyn posted on May 26, 2017 at 9:33 pm (#

      Yes, they freeze great!

    Hi there! I love this recipe! But yours look so much more delicious than mine. It seems when I make it they come out very dry, but yours look quite the opposite. What’s your secret?!

    • Jamielyn posted on October 24, 2017 at 3:46 pm (#

      Hi Amie! I would try adding less oats next time and add more until you get the consistency you like. :)
