I’m sure you thought I’d dropped off the face of the Earth, but no….just a had a hard year and couldn’t keep all the plates spinning.

I was perusing Pinterest looking for a quick breakfast idea.These were pretty simple to throw together and I only used one bowl.  Plus, who doesn’t love to eat cookies for breakfast.  I have another recipe for breakfast cookies that we all love but they are more involved. I definitely recommend trying both!



Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 cup applesauce (I used cinnamon flavored)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup GF white flour
1/2 cup nut butter (I used homemade sunbutter)
1/2 cup chopped nuts or seeds (I used pepitas)
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used craisins)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon (I used 1 1/2 teaspoons since I’d used the cinnamon applesauce)
pinch of salt

Combine all the ingredients, mix well.  I just used a spatula.

Make balls.  I used a scoop.  Flatten to desired thickness, they will not spread or flatten as they cook.  You can make them the size you’d like.

Bake 12-15 minutes.  You might need to adjust based on size.


This made about 22 – 2 inch cookies.

I forgot to do it, but I was thinking about adding chocolate chips, so that’d be a good addition.
