Breakfast Cookies (Dairy, Egg, Gluten, Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

I love protein for breakfast and sometimes actually get tired of drinking a protein shake.  These cookies are a great alternative.  They are hearty and give you lots of energy for the day.  Filled with protein, iron, fibre and omegas they will give you the boost you need to get going.
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup if vegan
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds ground up
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare cookie sheet.
  2. In a small dish combine flax and water.  Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine all ingredients then add the flax/water.
  4. Stir until fully combined.
  5. Scoop onto baking sheet.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes until cookies appear set.
  7. Let cookies rest on the cookie set for 2 minutes then transfer onto a wire rack.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


  1. Irene, these look so tasty! I don't know if we can get all these ingredients here but will give it a try. Loving the pictures you've been posting of your beautiful self.

  2. What can be used to replace a banana in your recipies? We understand they are way too much natural sugar.

    1. The banana in the recipe is too much sugar for you is that what I am undertanding? What have you used in the past with recipes? I would suggest just cutting it out or maybe 1/3 cup applesauce with an extra tablespoon of flax unless the applesauce is also too much sugar.

  3. It's all new to me, so I haven't "replaced" it with anything yet. But I love your recipes and I was wondering if you had suggestions to replace the banana. Apple sauce and/or flax will be great. Thanks for getting back to me.
