Grain-Free Blueberry Almond Breakfast Cookies - Gluten-free + Vegan

 

After sharing just some of the many gluten-free breakfast options in my post last week, I thought it would be appropriate to create a simple breakfast recipe for this week. I know beyond those that are gluten-free, many people now follow a completely grain-free diet, as well. These cookies and many other gluten-free baked goods can be easily made with almond flour and you would never know they are grain-free. If you haven’t yet experimented with almond flour, you must. These blueberry breakfast cookies are moist and full of flavor and I love the tasty bright bursts when you bite into the blueberries, plus the flavor from the almonds — they compliment each other so well. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love cookies for breakfast?

Cookies for breakfast? Yes please!! These seem like they will be almost scone like, and scones are mighty popular with my family so I am definitely going to need to make these!! So pretty too!

Thanks Alissa. It’s funny, I originally planned on scones, but as I got to playing with the dough and realized it would be a bit more fragile, I decided on cookies. Plus, I will be honest, getting that scone shape just right seemed like wayyyy too much work when cookies are as great an option ;) And yeh cookies for breakfast, I mean come on! haha

Hi Beth — I tried making these cookies this morning, but had a really hard time getting the blueberries to stay in the dough. The dough was pretty stiff. I ended up making cookies that were at least double the size and the blueberries were still were falling out. Any suggestions? Could I make a wetter dough? Thanks! — Carol

Oh no. Weird that it would turn out dry and stiff for you, my dough tended towards being more moist. What type of almond flour did you use?

I used the Bob’s Red Mill brand. The dough wasn’t dry exactly, but it just wouldn’t kind of stick to the berries. I wonder if I left some crucial ingredient out… Anyway, they tasted delicious, so it wasn’t a bust by any means. I will try them again and see if I get the same results.

I love reading your blog and you always have great recipes. I was really excited to try the blueberry almond breakfast cookie, but the link to the other website won’t work. Would you be able to post the recipe on here instead? Thanks!

Would love your Grain-Free Blueberry Almond Breakfast Cookies and followed directions to the Free People Blog Site without finding or finding a link to your recipe. Not nice! Please share with a more friendly site.

Thanks,
N

Hi there Nancy, I am sorry, but I am not sure what the problem is or what the complaint is in regards to? There is a clear link above to the full recipe on the Free People site. The link works and goes right to the recipe. Couldn’t be much more friendly. I am sorry you feel it isn’t nice. Here is a direct link to the recipe again – http://blog.freepeople.com/2013/07/grainfree-blueberry-almond-breakfast-cookies/

Hi there! I made these this weekend and they tasted amazing, but my dough was a little wet and they actually flattened out completely while baking and because of this overcooked. Any ideas?? Have you had this happen? Thank you!!

Hi Morgan, what type of almond flour did you use? It’s very important that it’s blanched almond flour not almond meal. They are definitely a moist cookie but as you can see in the photos, mine didn’t flatten out. I am sorry they didn’t work out for you. Maybe next time go with a bit more than 2 cups of flour?
