All my healthy living friends and paleolithic people are going to be excited to see I’m saying you can have “cookies” for breakfast! Some of my absolute favorite paleo cookies are these Hazelnut Paleo Cookies we make, but now I’ve got another recipe you can add to your line up. I’ve invited my new contributor Wendie from Pantry Dr. to share her paleo breakfast cookies with us today on the blog. Make sure you visit her site and read about her at the bottom of this post.
When you wake up in the morning, and you are short on time, it can be tricky to avoid the Starbucks drive-thru’s that will leave you bloated, low on energy, or leave you on a sugar high that will have you crashing mid-morning.
Even that packaged breakfast cookie from the health food store or your bar may be filled with unwanted or hidden sugars and preservatives. I get asked about healthy foods all the time, and the biggest challenge I hear from people is breakfast. By stripping away the sugars in our typical morning pit-stop, we can feel lighter on our feet, have more energy, and less brain-fog. Keep reading for these 4-ingredient paleo breakfast cookies that can be made in a batch so you don’t have to think about what to eat when you run out the door in the morning.
These breakfast cookies will work to reduce inflammation because they are gluten and dairy-free. These little cookies deliver a nutrient-packed punch because they are full of fiber and healthy fats to keep you full and are great for digestion.
1 cup medjool dates (remove the pits)
1 cup almond butter
½ cup dried cherries
Preheat oven to 325.
Blend the eggs and the dates in a food processor until it is smooth.
Add the almond butter (or other nut butter) and dried cherries and mix together in a bowl.
Drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 15-18 minutes and enjoy!

I just made these! They have a very good texture without an aftertaste. I didn’t have the cherries, so I used Paleo friendly Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. I’m going to experiment using the base 3 recipe ingredients for other cookies. The best part is the kids could not tell they were Paleo. Thanks for sharing!
Oh, Mitzi! That’s awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing. I don’t love cherries so I’m encouraged to hear that. 😉
So glad you loved! I use this base a lot 🙂
