Inside Scoop: These totally healthy grain-free Morning Glory Cookies will change your breakfast game.
I’ve been really into experimenting with grain-free baking lately. But the one thing I always find with grain-free baking is that it comes with the use of almond flour.
I mean I get it, almond flour is pretty versatile, but it can also be pretty expensive when you use it on a regular basis. And I really do use it on a regular basis, especially when baking cookies!
Cookies tend to be my go-to when it comes to baking! Especially easy cookies with nutrient dense, whole food based ingredients. Cookies that are great to give to my kiddo, and loaded with macronutrients!
And, these grain-free & healthy Morning Glory Cookies so far are one of my favourite breakfast cookies that use coconut flour instead of almond flour, and are loaded with all kinds of amazing ingredients.
Healthy Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies Loaded With Veggies & Fruit!
If you want an easy cookie that contains hidden veggies, fruit, and nuts, these morning glory cookies have got it going on!
I love creating them in little bite sized cookie fashion, because I can give my daughter two of them in the afternoon, and she’s totally satisfied, and I’m totally satisfied that she has something with carrots, apple, healthy fats, and protein, and it’s really a win-win for everyone.
Not only that, but these morning glory cookies can easily be cooked and frozen to be stored for later, and they make the perfect breakfast, grab-and-go recipe that you can take with you out the door when you’re in a rush!
PS. I also LOVE using them as a topper for yogurt or nice cream, they are truly a versatile treat!

I just made these Morning Glory Cookies and they are cooling off right now, but the mixture was so wet, it was impossible to roll into a ball, so I had to add more flour and use a small scoop to put them on a baking sheet. Why is that ?
My bananas were previously frozen and very wet after defrosting them, would that have been the problem. Also, I didn’t have coconut flour so I used AP flour.
I am sure that they will still be delicious, but I wanted to know, thank you.
Coconut flour is a highly absorbent flour. You’ll find that when cooking with it it can turn liquid dry very fast. My guess is that they turned out very wet because of the lack of coconut flour. However, if you added more AP flour it probably did the trick. Please let us know how they turned out.
