How to Make Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies

These Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies are filled with good-for-you ingredients: oatmeal, whole-wheat flour, and fresh summer peaches.

Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies

They come together easily and store well in the fridge or freezer, so you can have a quick grab ‘n’ go breakfast or healthy snack at a moment’s notice.

Healthy Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies

Begin by dicing a fresh peach in small cubes.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: oats, flour, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate bowl, stir together the melted butter, almond extract, egg, milk, and maple syrup.

Tip: These cookies can easily be made vegan & dairy-free by replacing the butter with coconut oil and using nut milk (like almond or cashew).

Add the liquid mixture to the dry and mix until just incorporated. Then, gently fold in the diced peaches.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Chill the dough in the fridge while the oven heats.

Using a spoon or cookie dough scooper, portion out 12 evenly-sized cookies. Flatten them gently with the back of your spoon, as these cookies don’t spread in the oven.

Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies vegan

Bake on a parchment-lined cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes.

Peach Almond Breakfast Cookies healthy and can be made vegan easily

These cookies are not overly sweet, like dessert cookies, so the natural sweetness of the fresh peaches really shines through.

Tip: If your peaches are really sweet and ripe, you could reduce or omit the brown sugar in the recipe for an even lower sugar content.

I love to keep a batch of these breakfast cookies in the freezer. On busy mornings, I can pop one into my lunch box, and it’s thawed and ready for me to enjoy with my coffee once I get to work.

Or, just a few seconds in the microwave, and it’s ready to eat right away.

These also make a great after-school snack for the kiddos that you can feel good about giving them.

    Niky, your peach cookies will be perfect for my husband! He always wants something sweet for breakfast and cookies have been a favorite to eat on-the-go. Hasn’t this been a fun recipe challenge? I’m sorry that I am just getting by… I am still getting back on our CST.

    Stay cool and happy baking,
    Barb 🙂

  2. I enjoy a chunky breakfast cookie and these look great Niky! The peaches add some nice color and almonds are delish in everything!

  3. Just like all of your recipes, these cookies look amazing! I was excited when you said they could be vegan and dairy free by replacing the butter and milk. So I looked back to see if there were eggs in the recipe, and my #1 grandson is highly allergic and I’m always looking for good vegan recipes. Is there an option you have used to replace the eggs to actually make it vegan? Pinned, because they are yummy no matter what!

    1. Thanks for pointing out my omission, Julie! I’ve corrected the recipe and added that I have successfully subbed 1/4 cup of a plant-based yogurt for the egg and got good results. I used have tried Siggi’s brand and Chobani Oat yogurt and like them both.
      I also found this link that I’ve used before to experiment with other non-egg options, depending on what I’m making. Hope this helps!

  4. Omit the brown sugar – heck no! Add extra almonds – heck yeah! I can hardly wait to try these. I’m a huge fan of cookies and having them for breakfast… why not? Seems healthier than a piece of cake. 😉
