Vegan Breakfast Cookies

These vegan breakfast cookies are a super easy breakfast to prepare at the beginning of the week. If you use public transport to get to work or go to the gym before work, then these cookies are going to be your best breakfast friend. They are convenient to carry around and are packed with nutrients to get your day off to a great start. Think of them as homemade convenience snacks, without all of the added sugar, flavours and preservatives.

This recipe has been inspired by My Darling Vegan. I slightly modified the original recipe to suit my flavour preferences and the ingredients that I had in my store cupboard – something I do very often. The recipe makes 12 cookies, each of which provides approx. 235 calories. To make the cookies gluten-free, use gluten-free flour and certified gluten-free oats.

Hope you enjoy!
