If you’ve been around my blog for a while, you may have run into my Paleo Morning Glory Quick Bread or my Grain-Free Morning Glory Muffins. Both have been a huge hit on this site, and also very popular among my friends and family!

Borrowing the morning glory concept and cookiefying it, I have whipped us up a batch of Paleo Morning Glory Cookies.

And guess what?! They’re healthy enough to eat for breakfast or snack!

Spoiler alert: These cookies have a fluffy, soft texture like muffin tops.

These cookies are made with almond flour, almond butter, shredded carrot and apple, apple sauce, walnuts, flaked coconut, and pure maple syrup. Plus, it’s all spiced up with cinnamon and ginger, so you know they’ve got to be amazing.

How to Make Paleo Morning Glory Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add the almond butter, egg, pure maple syrup and pure vanilla extract to a bowl. Stir well until creamy.

In a separate bowl, stir together the almond flour, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, baking soda, and sea salt. Transfer this mixture to the bowl with the wet almond butter mixture and stir until combined.

Stir in the remaining ingredients – flaked coconut, carrot, apples, raisins, and walnuts and stir well.

Drop cookie dough on the parchment paper. Note: the cookie dough will be thick and won’t spread very much while baking, so you’ll want to form the dough into the shape you want. 

Bake for 15 minutes for softer cookies, and up to 22 minutes for crispier cookies.

Allow cookies to cool at least 5 minutes before eating.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • For crispier cookies, omit one of the eggs and add ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce.
  • Replace the almond flour with hazelnut flour.
  • Swap out the walnuts for pecans or pumpkin seeds.
  • Replace raisins with dried blueberries.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond butter, eggs, pure maple syrup and vanilla extract until creamy. 
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and sea salt. 
  4. Transfer the flour mixture to the mixing bowl with the wet mixture and stir well until combined. Stir in the remaining ingredients (apple, carrot, raisins, walnuts).
  5. Drop cookie dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet (I like to make the cookies large, but you can make them any size you'd like). Bake 15 minutes, or until cookies are golden-brown around the edges. For crispier cookies, bake 17 to 20 minutes.
  6. Allow cookies to cool 5 minutes and serve.

Notes

*You can also use sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, or any nut/seed butter of your liking.

**Substitute eggs for 2 flax "eggs" to make vegan. For crispier cookies, omit one of the eggs and add 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce.

How much ground ginger do we use? It is stated in the post but not on the ingredients list.

Thanks!

I tried using pumpkin spice to replace the cinnamon, which was absolutely delicious.

Could I use another flour other than almond? Coconut? Or?

Hi Sue, you can use rice flour or hazelnut flour. Coconut flour will require you to add eggs and oil (exact quantities, I'm not sure as I haven't tested the recipe using coconut flour yet.)
