Healthy Egg-Free, Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies | Real Food RN

Breakfast is always tricky with kids for a variety of reasons: time constraints, crabby kids in the early morning, and picky eaters. Throw food restrictions into the mix and it can be very frustrating to find a great way to do breakfast!

While doing an elimination diet with my son, we had to eliminate eggs, white sugar, and all grains. Hmmm. So, I did some experimenting and came up with some Healthy Egg-Free, Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies, and they were a big hit! We have made these a number of times since I first created this recipe and like to add in things like: shredded carrots, raisins, different nuts, etc. They are very versatile and hide all sorts of goodies! Enjoy!

  1. These were a hit and the carbs were manageable enough to not spike blood glucose levels for my t1d! We are dairy/egg/gluten/nut free so I did replace the nut items with flaxmeal and sunflower flour(blended seeds in a blender), seeds and hemp hearts. I also swapped applesauce for the shredded apples, because we had none, and they turned out great! This is a very forgiving recipe! Mine cooked faster and spread on the pan, additional coconut flour kept their form better!
    Thanks for the new recipe! Breakfast is so tough with my son’s allergies!
