Healthy Baked Breakfast Cookie for One

This single serving breakfast cookie can be made in advance to enjoy the next morning. Just cook in the am and serve! For a larger batch of breakfast cookies, try these baked breakfast cookies or this single-serving overnight oats cookie. 

I eat a lot of the same things for breakfast. There are a handful of breakfasts in the rotation (protein yogurt, egg burrito, breakfast cookie, smoothie + eggs, or oats + eggs) and I don’t really experiment since I have about 5 minutes to make/eat my breakfast in the mornings (between feeding Liv, P, and getting the three of us kind of dressed and out of the house it gets a little hectic), and if I screw it up, it’s a fail. Also, I’ve been late for drop-off before and was not planning on it. I toted a baby and kiddo into the office.. wearing pajamas pants and a shirt covered in spit-up. I’m sure no one cared but now I’ll at least put on some real pants, just in case. 😉

So for breakfast, I walk on the not-so-wild side. I’m a huge fan of anything I can either make quickly, or make in a large batch to heat and enjoy throughout the week.

cookie for breakfast

Enter the single-serve baked breakfast cookie. I’m a huge fan of the classic overnight oats-esque creation, but I know that many of my friends out there prefer a “cooked” cookie, or don’t really love the banana.

This cookie is for youuuuuu.

Make in the PM, bake in the AM

Just prepare it the night before in a ramekin, and bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown and set. If you’d prefer, you can bake it the night before and easily reheat in the morning. Whatever works for your schedule! 

Either way, you need this in your life:

An easy, quick, healthy breakfast that tastes like dessert.

And just for size comparison, it’s almost as big as my hand. It definitely keeps me full through the morning.

    I love that these are make the night before, and baked oatmeal! Nothing beats a sweet treat in the morning in my opinion!

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2016 at 9:47 pm

      amen to that!

    I am hoping to get cleared by the doctor this week to start exercising post baby (going to start following the Post Baby Bod program and can’t wait!) and this will be great to start the day off right! Cant wait to make a batch!

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    Loved that commercial #reallife

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2016 at 9:46 pm

      right? the small batch kombucha part made me laugh out loud

  5. Guest on April 18, 2016 at 6:02 pm

    Looks yum. Can you sub some cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips?

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2016 at 9:46 pm

      the chocolate chips really help with the texture. i probably wouldn’t skip them, or they’d be really dry

  6. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on April 18, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    I’m all about cookies for breakfast and honestly, I’m not a big fan of bananas in some of baked goods so this is perfecto!

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2016 at 9:45 pm

      let me know if you give it try!

  7. Katie on April 19, 2016 at 5:21 am

    I can’t wait to try this. I love the original breakfast cookie and I have a feeling I will love this one too 🙂 Also I found a recipe for a chocolate mug cake that I just wanted to share! I know your love of healthy treats + chocolate. This covers both, plus its paleo! I am loving it and thought I would share. Ps always add the chocolate chips!

  8. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on April 19, 2016 at 8:18 am

    Definitely want to try this one! I’m like you – a total creature of habit in the morning. I’m so rushed, that it helps to take the “decision” time out of breakfast by eating the same things. Thanks for this one, friend! 🙂 LOVE the pretty pics!

  9. Crystal on April 19, 2016 at 10:42 am

    This looks tasty, although I’m still a fan of the OG breakfast cookie. I love breakfasts like this that can be made the day before and require no reheating or other prep in the am. More time for precious zzzz’s 🙂

  10. Jackie on April 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    How inventive! Great idea! Who doesn’t want cookies for breakfast?

  11. MODENOVA on April 21, 2016 at 2:52 am

    This looks delicious. Thanks for sharing. Continue the great work!
    Best, MODENOVA I

  12. Kendra on April 21, 2016 at 6:38 am

    I really…. REALLY… dislike no-bake cookies / snack bars. And teeny tiny cereal bars are … just awful. So this right here is the new coolest item on my to-do list! Thanks!

  13. Leighton Wells on April 22, 2016 at 9:12 am

    I know what I will be making for my Saturday morning breakfast tomorrow! So excited to try this one out

    What is almond meal?

    • Fitnessista on April 26, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      it’s ground up almonds

      • Fitnessista on April 26, 2016 at 9:17 pm

        no worries if you don’t have it though- you can sub another flour (except coconut) xo

  15. Amy on May 16, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    Would you have a substitute for egg whites?
