These Healthy 3-Ingredient Breakfast Cookies are filled with delicious dark chocolate chips, peanut butter, and rolled oats for a very filling snack! These guilt-free cookies are also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, flourless, vegetarian, and kid-friendly!
I am partnering with Bob’s Red Mill for today’s recipe. All of the concepts, ideas, and visuals are my own.
Hi folks! No protein in this recipe today. I figured I would keep it simple and make this one very similar to my very popular 3-ingredient banana oatmeal cookies.
Bananas are being replaced with a mixture of pitted dates, water, and peanut butter for a recipe that is still naturally sweetened, but with a little bit more protein and healthy fats added to it.
Why I Think You’ll Like These 3-Ingredient Breakfast Cookies
- Easy to Make! Really! These take about 5 minutes to whip up.
- Super Healthy. Naturally sweetened with dates, filled with good carbs and some added (optional) dark chocolate chips, these are the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack.
- Super Tasty! I mean, what can possibly go wrong with chocolate chip cookies, right? These taste like they are super dirty, when in fact they are just clean, clean, clean!
- Protein-Packed! Although there is no protein powder added to this recipe, these could be called breakfast protein cookies, as each cookie contains an impressive 7 grams of natural, plant-based protein. The perfect quick vegan breakfast!
Can I Use Quick Oats Instead of Rolled Oats?
Absolutely! Although it will be a little less healthy, as quick oats have a higher glycemic index. The good part about using quick oats, though, is that the cookies will hold a little bit better together.
What Kind of Oatmeal is Best for Cookies?
What I (almost) always bake with is Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten-Free Rolled Oats. I simply love the product, the texture is amazing and this stuff is just so, so nutritious! Their Old Fashioned Oats are also great.
Will My Cookies Change Shape in the Oven?
No. These will remain roughly the same size and shape, so make sure to mold them into their desired shape before baking them!

3-Ingredient Breakfast Cookies
These 3-Ingredient Breakfast Cookies are so easy to make and so tasty, you'll want to make them every single week! Super handy as an on-the-go snack or breakfast, this healthy treat is the perfect lunchbox filler!
- 2 cups rolled oats Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free
- 1 cup pitted dates Soaked for 15 minutes in warm water
- 1/2 cup peanut butter natural
- 1/2 cup soaking water Explanations in the recipe section
- 1/3 cup sugar-free chocolate chips Optional (Or chocolate chips of choice!)
***Soak the Dates. Prior to making this recipe, you will need to soak 1 cup dates in warm water for 15 to 30 minutes. Place the dates in a bowl and fill it with water about 1/2 inch above the dates.
Preheat oven to 350F
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Liquid Ingredients. Place the soaked dates (drained) in the blender container, 1/2 cup of the water used to soak the dates, and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Blend for about 30 seconds, until smooth. (You might have to scrape the walls of the blender container a couple of times, make sure the blender is at the OFF position when doing so!)
Mix Everything Together. Place 2 cups rolled oats and 1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional) in a large mixing bowl and pour the liquid mixture into it. Mix until well combined.
Mold the Cookies. Scoop the cookie dough on the baking sheet using an ice cream scoop. Mold the cookies into the desired shape using your hands or a fork. (Should make 8 cookies of equal size)
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sides start to brown.
Store for up to 7 days in the refrigerator in a sealed container or for up to 3 months in the freezer.
