We found a way to have cookies for breakfast.
From Joanne Chang of Flour Bake ry and Myers+Chang: 'I know that people often don’t have time for breakfast, so I wanted to create something easy to eat on the run and full of whole grains and nuts and seeds, because that’s what I personally love to eat. I saw a picture in Bon Appétit of a breakfast cookie and wondered if we could come up with something similar. We tested this for weeks, adding a bit of this and that and continuing to improve it so that it was not too sweet but still a little sweet, crunchy, filling, and full of flavor. I love this cookie—it’s everything I hoped it would be.' Featured in: We Found a Way to Have Cookies for Breakfast (You’re Welcome)
May 2, 2020I had one the Breakfast Cookie at Flour Bakery a couple of months ago and really loved the flavor. I'm so happy to have found the recipe online!I had the chance to make this yesterday and they tasted exactly like the one I had in store. I love that there are so many different seeds and nuts and it's not overly sweet. It's also filling, which makes it a truly ideal breakfast cookie, and so good with a cup of coffee.
I didn't have any bananas, so I subbed this with some mashed sweet potatoes. I think I prefer this as it cuts down on the sweetness. Stacy H.August 16, 2018I have been making these wonderful cookies for about 6 months now, for breakfast, as I was tired of muffins. They are soooo yummy and take a while to eat, because of the seeds. I use whatever nut is on hand, (usually toasted cashews), and I increase the total dried fruit to over 2 cups...ie 1 cup of raisins and 15 dates cut up. For the more seed/health fun, I also add 3 to 4 tbsps of hemp seed. Since I am not a banana fan, I stir in milk or yogurt. Wonderful recipe.
Lisa C.May 4, 2018I adore these cookies. I subbed dried cherries for cranberries and skipped the flax seeds (forgot to buy-oops). I have nick named them the bird seed cookies due to the millet, and shared them with friends volunteering at the Boston Marathon. The recipe for the"bird seed cookies" was later requested. Success all around - thank you for sharing the recipe! headtopics.com
SharynApril 13, 2018I’m in Cambridge and just had one of these. Awesome. I did not think I would find the official recipe but am happy I did. As requested before please provide nutrition information. MichaelMay 1, 2018If you’re concerned, and incapable of infering the general over all nutritional value from the ingredient list, how about taking responsibility and doing the work for yourself, instead of demanding it from others? Why should someone that is giving you a recipe, for free no less, sit there and do that work for you?!
Laura415September 24, 2018I don't know why your comment is so terse. I too would like to know more about the sugar content. After all this recipe for many of us was linked from an article about cooking with less sugar. So we have a 1/2 cup of maple syrup has over 100 grams of sugar and dried cranberries and dried cherries totalling 1.5 cups is also a lot of sugar. Finally, a banana has something over 14 grams of sugar depending on how big it is. I tried to look all this up but couldn't get all the info. Hey it's ok to ask and not get shamed for not doing an hours worth of googling to get the info.
MichaelSeptember 25, 2018Well you couldn't even be bothered to look up the definition of 'terse' before you used it. Really not surprised. Jenny A.November 26, 2019Rudely stated, but true. Joanne is a chef and restaurant owner, not a nutritionist. She probably has less time on her hands than all of us readers.
TrudyApril 11, 2018If there is such a thing as happiness in a cookie, this one is it. I just feel really good when I eat one. Thank you so much for this recipe, it is wonderful. I like to eat healthy, but for me it also has to taste great, these cookies are both healthy and delicious. headtopics.com
