GF date & Muesli breakfast cookies mean no more excuses for skipping breakfast!! I’m a huge fan of oatmeal and muesli because there’s lots of good fiber and “stick to your ribs” qualities.
I had this huge bag of dates that I needed to get busy and use up, so I decided to add some to my breakfast cookie recipe instead of my usual…raisins.
These sweet and chewy Muesli breakfast cookies are sure to be a hit with the whole family. For a really sweet treat try them frozen, that’s my favorite way!
These cookies have other nutritious ingredients to keep your energy up too:
- Hemp seeds
- Honey or Agave syrup
Have you ever tried hemp seeds or dates? Hey! Don’t miss out on these nutritious foods. Dates and hemp seeds are both beneficial for your digestive health, they contain antioxidants, and they are shown to reduce inflammation.

GF Date & Muesli Breakfast Cookies

- 1/4 cup coconut oil – heat to soften if needed ~ melted is fine too
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- Preheat oven to 325. Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
- In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients in the order given. Stir as you add the ingredients to combine well.
- I used a large cookie scoop for these breakfast cookies; you could always use a smaller one and make twice as many cookies. Just remember to shorten the baking time if you decide to make smaller cookies.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Let cookies rest on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. They will be fragile until they reach room temperature. Don’t worry though; they will firm up nicely,
