Applesauce Breakfast Cookies


This healthy cookie recipe is vegan and gluten free and is perfect for breakfast or a snack. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth without any added sugar!


  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup chopped dates (from about 13 dates)
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (you can blend rolled oats in the blender to make oat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted, or oil of choice
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds plus 3 tablespoons water (or 1 egg)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  3. Combine the flaxseed and water in a small bowl and give it a few minutes to gel. (Omit this step if you are using an egg.)
  4. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  5. Form into small or medium balls (small balls will yield 2 dozen cookies, medium balls will yield 1 dozen), flatten, and place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven about 12-15 minutes, until they are just starting to get golden brown. Enjoy!
