How to Make Breakfast Cookies
You can jump to the recipe card for full ingredients & instructions!
- Whisk the dry ingredients together.
- Beat the wet ingredients together.
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
- Fold in the chocolate chips, raisins, and flaxseeds.
- Scoop the dough onto lined baking sheets.
- Bake and let cool.
For best results, I recommend quick cook oats (not instant) for this cookie recipe. If you don’t have quick-cook oats on hand, pulse old-fashioned oats in a blender or food processor a few times to break them up. Measure 1½ cups of oats after pulsing them.
Swap flaxseeds for any other kind of seed-like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, or omit completely.
While I haven’t personally tested a gluten-free version of this recipe, try replacing the flour with a 1:1 gluten-free flour replacement and make sure you are using certified gluten-free oats.
I don’t recommend it. Chilling the cookie dough prevents the cookies from spreading too much while they bake.
Store baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
These raisin, chocolate chip, and oatmeal cookies aren’t just for breakfast! They’re a delicious mid-afternoon snack, lunchtime treat, or dessert.
- For consistent, uniform cookies, I love using a cookie scoop. A 2 tablespoon-size cookie scoop is perfect for these breakfast cookies.
- These cookies are done baking when the edges are just set and the bottoms are slightly browned, about 10-12 minutes. Try not to overbake them!
Take the hassle out of mornings with these make-ahead breakfast cookies.
Can I make these cookies without raisins?
Yes, you can make these cookies without raisins. If you’d like to replace the raisins, use an equal amount of dried cranberries or cherries, chopped nuts, or seeds.
Can I use any kind of chocolate chips?
Yes! Use your favorite kind – mini, milk, dark, white, or even butterscotch chips are all delicious choices.
Can I freeze this cookie dough?
Yes! To freeze the cookie dough, flash freeze the raw cookie dough balls in a flat layer (so they don’t stick together), place the frozen cookie dough balls into an airtight container, and freeze for up to 3 months. To bake the frozen cookie dough balls, add an extra 2 minutes of baking time.
