Without the stand-by of cold breakfast cereal, sometimes we just need something quick and easy to hand the kids on the way out the door on an especially rushed morning. I keep a batch of these breakfast cookies in the back of my fridge for just a morning such as that (or, let’s be honest- most Thursday mornings!). They also pack really well into backpacks for hiking and lunchboxes, and are sweet enough to be served as a dessert as well.

No-Bake 'In a Pinch' Grain-Free Breakfast Cookies
Over medium-high heat, heat the honey to boil, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally over medium heat, for 3 minutes. Honey will be bubbling and starting to darken, but not be completely dark brown at this point. This is the firm ball stage.
Turn off burner and add the peanutbutter and sea salt. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, or until the peanutbutter becomes more melty and stirs easily into the honey.
Add in coconut while stirring. Add in more coconut if needed to make the mixture the consistency of cookie dough.
Lay out parchment and, using a heaping tablespoon of the mixture, form into cookie shapes. Allow to cool to room temperature, and then store covered in the fridge.

This sounds good! Is it adaptable to other nut butters, or seed butters? Say tahini perhaps? What about other add-ins? Chia? Flax?
It would work with almond butter and most likely sunbutter :)
How long would these cookies last in the fridge?
I’d guess 2 weeks in the fridge, a couple months in the freezer.
Hi Cara, I love your wonderful recipes and particularly your videos. Sorry to be dim, but ingredient quantities are written slightly differently in Australia and I’d just like to confirm what 1-1/2 means. Does it mean one and a half? Or does it mean between half a cup and a full cup – suggesting a rough estimate? I’m assuming the former. Thanks.
Hi Kate, it’s one cup and another half cup :)
I’m not GAPS familiar- gf oatmeal vs coconut?
GAPS is grain-free :) So you can use coconut on GAPS, but if you’d just like them to be gluten free oats work well.
Our family loves this cookie! This time I added hemp hearts. They turned out great!
Do you have a brand of Peanut Butter you recommend?
I use Adam’s :)
I never heat honey .
When you heat honey it isn’t as healthy for you .
You never want to heat honey that’s why you want raw unprocessed honey .
It’s full of good antibiotics and bacteria when not heated once heated those r gone .
Hi Nancy, I talked about the honey stuff here- yes, raw is best, but heating isn’t bad. https://healthhomeandhappiness.com/does-honey-become-toxic-when-heated.html
