These Blueberry & White Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Cookies are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts.

Close up of quinoa breakfast cookies, one with bite takenI have a confession – I absolutely never make breakfast. Except for that one time when I made Bacon Breakfast Tostadas… If you read that post, you’ll understand why breakfast is not my best friend.

Today, I’m setting out to change things with these Blueberry & White Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Cookies. I love this recipe because you can make a huge batch of these on the weekend and then eat them throughout the week. You can even stash them in the freezer for up to a month! These quinoa breakfast cookies are my new morning obsession.

Not only do they give you an energy boost, but they’re packed with fiber and protein too. All those nutrients come from the healthy grains in these breakfast cookies – Quinoa, steel cut oats and whole wheat flour. And all of those healthy grains come from my favorite local producer – Bob’s Red Mill. I love how many different products they offer and that they’re certified USDA organic too. About half of my pantry is stocked with Bob’s…

Ingredients for Blueberry & White Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Cookies.

To sweeten things up a bit, I threw in some applesauce and brown sugar, but the true stars in this recipe are the blueberries and the white chocolate chips. I love that combination together – Like berries and cream…

These quinoa breakfast cookies taste like a mashup of a cookie and a muffin. They’re a bit like a muffin top, without all the crumbliness… and they bake up right on a cookie sheet.

But the best part of these quinoa breakfast cookies is that you can totally customize them. After digging into these blueberry & white chocolate cookies for about a week, I was ready to change things up a bit. The next weekend I made quinoa breakfast cookies with raspberries and dark chocolate. And the next weekend? Quinoa breakfast cookies with some pumpkin and pecans thrown into the mix. Up next? Maybe some holiday inspired quinoa breakfast cookies with cranberries and white chocolate chunks.Hand reaching for quinoa breakfast cookie.

    Breakfast cookies that have healthy Quinoa but also berry and cream flavors, and can be made in a big batch to enjoy for a month? Awesome! And really original to get these into a easy to travel cookie form

    These sound really good. I’m bad about making breakfast foods too. I like how it’s versatile, I’d probably sub in dark chocolate!t
