Chocolate Chip Pistachio Breakfast Cookie

Cookies for breakfast is my kind of language. These cookies are perfect for breakfast or a quick energy snack on the go. They are soft and chewy, wonderfully sweet, and full of good for you ingredients. The idea for these cookies came from this recipe but I made several changes based on personal preference and what we had on hand.


These cookies are  more like a healthy snack than a true cookie. Calling it a cookie however is one way to get your kids on board eating this healthy goodness. They take no time at all to throw together making them easy enough for a busy weekday morning. The Pistachios add in some healthy fats but can easily be left out if nuts aren’t really your thing. I typically prefer my cookies without nuts but for these breakfast cookies they help to make them a bit more substantial due to their powerful nutritional punch. If you choose you can make these cookies gluten-free by substituting certified GF oats for regular oats.
