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