Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies

Have you ever had Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies? Or maybe morning glory muffins?  They are very similar to carrot cake muffins or carrot cake breakfast cookies.

Today I am super excited to bring you this particular morning glory recipe since it’s totally grain-free!  I used chickpeas as a base and they turned out great.

These healthy breakfast cookies have very little added sugar.  There is only 1/4 cup maple syrup in the entire recipe!  They are vegan, gluten free and grain free!

You can easily make these nut free by using sunflower seeds instead of the pecans.

  1. This recipe does not work. I was so excited to try these that I started baking at 10:30pm. Unfortunately, after 15 minutes of baking, the cookies were still in the ball shape of the cookie scoop. They never flattened out. I took them out and tried flattening them myself with the back of a spoon to which they stuck and broke apart until I started wetting the spoon. They pretty much look like a hot mess and smell just as bad as they look. I'll finish baking. let them cool overnight and let you know if they are actually edible in the morning. Sadly, I'm very disappointed in this recipe and tired of wasting ingredients on poorly written recipes with deceivingly pretty pictures. (would give it 2 stars but can only choose 4 or 5)
    1. Sorry they didn't work out for you. :( They have received good reviews so far. I flattened the cookies with my palm before they went into the oven, because cookies made with chickpeas don't really spread much like typical cookies.
  2. Can they be made without a food processor? I have a mixer and an old Oster blender. I'd like to try them. Thanks.
  3. Would any type of nut work in place of the pecans? I only have almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts at the moment. Thanks
  4. Thanks for a great recipe! My cookies turned out perfectly. I added a tsp of vanilla to the recipe and baked on parchment paper. Yum!!
  5. Hi This recipe looks amazing... I would like to know how much flax seeds do we use.. it says 1 but not clear on the measurements.. thank u
  6. I just made these and they turned out great. I added a half teaspoon vanilla. A great treat when I’m trying to get on track with healthy eating in the new year!
