Healthy Breakfast Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by EntirelyEmily

This is an easy, and incredibly nutritious recipe that you can quickly throw together the night before to have for breakfast the following morning. My brother loves them and was my inspiration when I perfected this yummy cookie recipe. If there's a lot of old or stale cereal left in your pantry, this is an easy way to use it up! Again, I use a lot of applesauce in place of butter or oil. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend together margarine, applesauce and sugars.
  2. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda/powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. Combine flour mixture and wet mixture until just combined.
  5. Crush cereal well, then mix that into the rest of the dough. I usually put my cereal in one of those heavy duty gallon sized ziplock bags and stomp all over it!
  6. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown!
