    i don’t like brown rice flour because no matter WHAT I use it in it tastes gritty like sand. i have a gluten free flour mixture from carol fenster that i use for everything from cakes to cookies to cornbread it has white rice flour and potato flour and corn starch and I forget at the moment, but could I use this as well? also i have friends that can use anything but not wholewheat flour. another member said she used white flower and more rolled oats, how much more. I would like to try that . this sounds sooo good.

    • Hi, I am not familiar with the carol gluten free flour but I am sure it will work well to replace brown rice flour in this recipe. Enjoy the cookies! XOXO. Carine.

    • Hi, I would not use olive oil in this recipe. Coconut oil is really adding a great taste to the cookies and help them firm up when cooked. Coconut oil gets solids again at room teperature and it gives a lovely texture to those cookies. Enjoy them, xoxo Carine.

  3. These look great but I am not crazy about the desiccated coconut, what can I substitute or can i leave it out altogether?

    • Hi, I would recommend you to use any nut flour like almond flour, hazelnut flour or oat bran. Use same amount as you will use for coconut. Enjoy the recipe, xoxo Carine.

    I made these today and they were delicious!
    I skipped the cranberries when I read the ingredients on the pack and discovered they were 41% sugar (!!!). Also I used 3 eggs and added a little rose water for flavor. So they ended up nice and moist. Kids loved them too. Thanks for this recipe ?

      • Well, I am sorry if you can’t get those where you live, I don’t have this trouble in NZ. You can always omit them in the recipe and it will come out great! Enjoy the recipes on te blog. XOXO Carine.

    These have become a staple for us. So quick and easy to make up on Sunday for weekday breakfast. So many nutritious ingredients too! We love them!

    • Hi, Thank you so much for this lovely comment. I am so happy to hear that my recipe is on your table every Sunday 🙂 I hope you’ll find even more delicious recipe on my blog. Thanks for reading me and trying my recipe. xoxo Carine.

  6. Am I reading carbs right. 45 for one cookie or is it 45 divided by 8? That seems realllllllly high in carbs. Which makes me sad as a diabetic! The ingredients don’t seem as though it would equate to 45 carbs for one cookie. Am I reading cab right lol?

    • Hi Melodie, yes it is 45 g carbs per cookie – but it is 8 large cookies. You can remove the cranberries to decrease and swap the honey by brown rice syrup. It will decrease the carbs to 38 g – including 5.2 g of fibre so only 32.8g net carb per cookies. Also, this recipe makes 8 large cookies. You can also makes 16 small cookies and each cookies will bring you only 16.4 net carb per cookie. Don’t forget that this recipe contains only healthy wholegrains carbs from wholegrain oat and brown rice flour which are good for you. Have a great day, xoxo Carine.

    • Hi Jenny, The nutrition panel is per cookie and the recipe makes 8 large cookies. You can also make 16 smaller cookies to divide your calories per portion. Enjoy the recipe ! xoxo Carine.

    • Hello ! I never made those clean breakfast cookie without eggs so I would not recommend anything without trying it before. However if you love egg free oatmeal bars I have gt another delicious recipe that will be suitable for your egg free diet. It is a carrot cake oatmeal bar. You can check the recipe here. Enjoy the recipe ! Carine.

  7. Hi there. I am going to attempt these on the weekend! I am just wondering what jumbo oats are please?
    Thank you so much for sharing

    • Hi Sheryl, Jumbo oats also known as wholegrain oats or old fashioned oats are oat groats that have been steamed and flattened with a large heavy roller. They have got a perfect bite size for muesli or bars adding more texture. Rolled oats also know as quick oats are smaller pieces than jumbo oats. It is finer flakes that absorb more liquids and give bulk in porridge or bars. You can buy jumbo oats from Quaker brand. I added a link in the recipe box for you – click on it and have a look ! I hope it helps. Enjoy those delicious cookies. see you soon on the blog and thanks for reading my blog Sheryl! xoxo Carine.

  8. I am looking forward to making these for breakfast to go in the mornings! Thank you for sharing. I was wondering for this recipe, how many cookies does it make? And how many would say for a average size person would fill you up for breakfast? Appreciate the info for helping in my food prepping for my family of 5. Thanks again!

    • Hi Sarah! This recipe makes about 8- 10 cookies – size as on the picture makes 8. I am a small person and I am usually full with two cookies and a large cappuccino 🙂 My husband will have more that is why I am often doubling the batch and keep them for a week in a airtight plastic container at room temperature. Enjoy the recipe and let me know how it goes! Thanks for reading my blog and testing my recipes Sarah! I can’t wait to read you again! xoxo Carine.

    Hi Carine,
    I made your breakfast cookies for the fist time today and they were great! My batter was a bit wet (I only had white flour in my pantry) so I added in more quick oats and they turned out perfectly. I will definitely be making these again and look forward to trying new ingredient combinations! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    • Hi Melissa, I am so happy to read that ! I love those breakfast cookies and I always found the recipe super easy and delicious. I am very happy to read that this works perfectly in your kitchen too and that we can easily adapt it with what we have got in the pantry! Always great to have options for the other readers. Huge thank you for following my blog and taking few minutes to add this positive review. I hope you will find more delicious recipe on my blog. xoxo. Carine.

    Just made these and while certainly tasty, they do not resemble cookie batter in the least. They were very hard to shape and fell apart as soon as I put them on the cookie sheet. I ended up skipping them with an ice cream scoop into muffin tins.

      • Hi Penny, Thanks for your positive comment on this recipe! I love to hear that everything goes well and was as simple as that ! Enjoy the clean cookies and see you soon on the blog to try more healthy recipes ! Huge thanks for following my blog and testing my recipes <3. Carine.

    • Hi, I am sorry to hear that. Did you change any ingredients in the recipe at all? I am thinking about the flour or did you well use a combo of jumbo and rolled oats? For e.g brown rice flour has a different amount of fiber than other flour meaning that they liquid absorption is also different. Same with oat size. My batter is never dry using this recipe. It looks sticky, thick not crumbly at all. If it is crumbly or too dry I recommend to add 1 tbsp of cold water into the mixture – up to 6 tbsp. It should makes the batter easier to work into cookies. Thanks for following the blog! Let me know, xoxo Carine.

      • Can you please explain what is desicated coconut? These sound delicious but I don’t know what that is. Thanks.

        • Hi Patricia, Desiccated coconut is coconut meat which has been shredded and then dried to remove as much moisture as possible. It is thinner than shredded coconut. It looks like a coconut powder and you can buy it in any supermarket in the baking area. I hope you try those breakfast cookies. It is delicious! Carine.
