Quick and healthy breakfast cookies

sheryl's kitchen


Paul and I started Steens Honey nearly 40 years ago, and we're still just as passionate about our bees as we always were. I love using our deliciously raw, grainy honey to create recipes with ingredients fresh from our garden in Papamoa Hills.

These cookies are a meal!  

For those who struggle with breakfast these are super nutritious and great energy boosters, they are flour free, refined sugar free and dairy free.  What’s not to love!  

I make these with organic ingredients and you could substitute loads of the ingredients with what you have in the cupboard.

The added bonus…the little ones love them too.

In a good sized bowl simply add all the ingredients below:



1 mashed banana (I mash it in the bowl)

1 tablespoon Steens Manuka Honey (I used UMF 10+)

¼ cup cranberries (other dried fruits are great)

¼ cup pecans (any nuts you might have on hand)

¼ cup activated buckwheat (pumpkin seeds would be good instead)

½ cup wholegrain oats (sub with rolled oats)

2 tablespoons peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)

1 medium apple with core removed and grated (no need to peel)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon psyllium (helps bind the ingredients together)

1 teaspoon baking powder 


Best using your hands in here and give it a really good mix up combining all the ingredients, it is not a dry mix. 



Roll into balls approx. 10, pop onto a baking sheet,

flatten with a fork and bake at 150ºC

(300ºF) for 10-12 minutes.



Let cool and store in an airtight container.

These little cookies are full of flavour and texture, are great for supporting digestion and they're ready in about 15 short minutes!



Happy, healthy eating!
