For awhile now, my family has been eating fewer grains, in an attempt to work on our gut health. Meals are fairly easy, but having healthy snacks that we can take on the go is a little rough.

We typically lean on these No-Bake Coconut Delights, Crispy Green Bean Chips, Homemade Protein Bars, and Homemade Gummies, but my boys have been craving cookies lately.   So I'm especially pleased to have found this fabulous new recipe for Grain-free Paleo Breakfast Cookies in a fabulous Healthy Breakfast book.

The thing that is extra special about this recipe is that while it's a recipe for paleo cookies, it's adaptable for the Autoimmune Paleo Diet, something that I hope to write more about soon. It's a diet that has helped so many people with autoimmune diseases feel so much better.

Anyway, back to the recipe.

Paleo Breakfast Cookies for the Win

These paleo breakfast cookies are sweet, but not too sweet, and they're super filling, which is so nice — they really satisfy your hunger and keep you full so you're not so tempted to overeat.

Regardless of that, however, my boys have managed to polish off all of them just about as quickly as I make them (well, I did have a few.)

These Paleo Breakfast Cookies are super healthy and easy to make -- Breakfast Cookies that are grain, egg, and dairy-free w/ low carb and nut free options.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the flax seeds, water, lemon juice and vanilla and let it sit for about 10 minutes, until it forms a gel.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the coconut flour with the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the shredded coconut and raisins and mix until well combined.
  4. Melt the coconut butter and sweetener in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the coconut butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well.
  5. Add the flax gel to the dough and mix until a thick, sticky dough forms. Scoop the cookie dough into 2-inch mounds and place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Repeat until all the dough is used.
  6. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.



For nut free version: Use coconut butter option.

For a lower carb version: Use 1/2 cup chopped walnuts instead of raisins.

For AIP version: Use a gelatin egg instead of the flax egg.

I tend to make these grain-free breakfast cookies small so that they stay together better (see my Gluten-Free Baking Tips for more tips that will help you in the kitchen.)  The recipe yielded about 18 cookies that way.

These paleo breakfast cookies are certainly healthy enough to have on a daily basis, and even are healthy enough for breakfast.  Which makes me feel really good.  Getting all of that healthy coconut into my kids makes this mom happy.

I've had a few of these recipes and they are great — and I'm sincerely looking forward to trying all of them.  My oldest is deathly allergic to eggs, so I'll be a little limited, but the egg free recipes are just perfect.

Please note, if you purchase this book, that the stevia amount noted in the recipe does make the cookies turn out super sweet. We altered it to what I indicated above.  When my son made these the first time, he used 1 teaspoon and they were, let's just say, not very good. I doubled or tripled the remaining ingredients  to try to make up for the added sweetness (I just can't bear to throw away good food!)

Hope this recipe helps you have healthy snacks available for you and yours.

    Speak Your Mind


  1. I am about to bake up a batch, so an update is to come. I will say, however, that these are not for those who are strictly paleo. I began paleo with my husband, but have some ingredients I would feel wrong throwing out. So, I will rid the rest of my honey and bake some of these! Stevia is also not paleo approved, as is it refined. Do these freeze well? Can I substitute peanut butter for the coconut butter? I also need to use through my jar.

    • I have not heard about stevia not being paleo but folks often don’t use it on the AIP diet. They should freeze well but I haven’t tried. You can sub in the peanut butter for coconut butter. :).

  2. Soupy cookies ?

  3. Would a chia egg work just as well as a flax egg? I think I’ll try it. Thanks for your blog! You’ve helped me so many times and we have so many things in common.

  4. Made these the other night with some slight variation. They turned out great and I will be making them again. I like that they aren’t very sweet, but they have great flavor.

    However, your flax egg, it’s unclear how many “eggs” it is supposed to replace. My understanding is that 1 egg = 1/4 cup, so your flax egg is about equal to 3 real eggs. It might be a good idea to clarify this for people who would rather use real eggs, or gelatin eggs instead of the flax eggs. A gelatin egg is 1 tbs gelatin, 1 tbs. cold water (mix with gelatin first to “bloom” it) and 2 tbs. boiling water (to dissolve the gelatin after it’s bloomed for 10 minutes) which comes out to 1/4 cup. You can adjust as needed to make as many eggs as you need for a recipe. In your recipe, the 3 tbs. ground flax and 1/2 c + 1 tbs. water = 3/4c = 3 eggs.

    I used real eggs for these, as I tolerate real eggs. I also used sunbutter instead of coconut butter or almond butter because it’s what I had on hand. If anyone else tries this, be forewarned that sunbutter reacts to the baking soda and turns them green. Like literally bright green in the middle of my cookies. They taste great and according to the internet it’s perfectly safe to eat, but there’s a chemical reaction between an acid in the sunbutter and baking soda that turns it green. Which is weird because I’ve made other cookies with sunbutter and baking soda and that doesn’t happen, but whatever.

    • Hi there. As for the flax egg, this isn’t my recipe, but was made by Caitlin Weeks and I don’t think that the flax here was supposed to replace eggs in any certain amount, but was what she felt was good for the recipe.

      I can ask her to see if she can chime in here.

      I know about the sunflower – it’s odd. I have no idea why that didn’t happen with others of your recipes – maybe something counteracted the reaction? Thanks!

  5. If I was the use the gelatin egg version, how much gelatin + water?

  6. Kurabiye Tarifleri says:

    Thanks for these appetizing and ingredient-rich cookies.

  7. These look great. Yum!

  8. Hai, how much are the prizes of the books to buy? Are they also in dutch to become? Would be great!

    • Hello there. If you click through you can see the price of the book. Were you asking if they are going to be available in Dutch? If so, I don’t believe so. Perhaps you can copy the text and put it in an online translator. Hope that helps!
