Chocolate Chip Orange Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Who doesn’t love the idea of a cookie for breakfast? Especially when it involves chocolate!

I developed this recipe recently for a new gluten free project that I am working on. My family loved these breakfast cookies and I realized that although this recipe was gluten free, it was a also a regular recipe that anyone can enjoy. The only thing you do to make these gluten free is use gluten free oats. So you can easily make them for anyone by using regular oats.

I knew I had to share these cookies with you because not only are they delicious, the timing is perfect for back to school. These breakfast cookies work great for making ahead and keeping in the fridge or freezer for busy mornings.

Chocolate Chip Orange Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

My kids like these cookies warm when they eat them for breakfast so they usually heat them up in the microwave, but they will also eat them cold for a quick snack. So these cookies are also great for lunch boxes as well.

I use quick oats in these because we like the texture a little better with quick oats. But you can also use old fashioned oats or a combination of both and it works fine.

If you are gluten free be sure to use gluten free oats.

Now go make a batch of these so that you have a quick and easy breakfast for this week!

My favorite tool for making these are the USA Cookie Sheet and USA Pans Half Sheet Pan. I love these for making all kinds of cookies and baked goods.

  1. My family really likes breakfast cookies. The orange with chocolate chips sounds wonderful. I know what I’ll be making tomorrow!

  2. These are awesome! We are nut free and I have a hard time making a good breakfast cookie. I add ground flax seed too!

    • I am so glad that you enjoyed them! My nut free daughter loves these, so I am glad to hear that you all are nut free and love them too! And adding ground flax seed is a great idea.
