Coal Breakfast Cookies

Christmas breakfast is served.

The perfect festive breakfast for Christmas morning!! Coal Breakfast Cookies (made with flaxseed & oats for a great start to your day)!

How fun and festive…and yet somber because it’s coal from Santa and not, let’s say, that milk frother you’ve been pining (and pinning) for.

So this weekend while making a DIY Christmas gift for my big sister I managed to take a chunk out of my pinky finger.  I’m typing this post up with 9 fingers instead of 10.  I mean, the finger is still attached it’s just inoperable at the moment. After a cut I typically call my mom and ask the question, “how bad is bad?” And then I proceed to describe the cut. I’m accident prone around the holidays. Like 4 Christmases ago I was playing a heated game of ping pong and ended up busting my head open and had to get staples. 

I think the finger may need stitches, but I’m getting a hair cut tomorrow and I don’t have time for both.

But it’s okay, I knew I didn’t have a career as a hand model anyways.  My skin is far too pinky.  Whenever I edit food pictures that involve my hands I always have to scale the red tones way down.

How was your last weekend before Christmas?

Did you go ice skating? We didn’t.

I spent about 2 hours Saturday trying to convince Andrew to go but he says “why would anyone attach small hatchets to children’s feet and let them run around?!”

True.

But holiday cheer (i.e. hot chocolate) usually takes away my fear of being cut by a blade-wearing small child. In the end we watched 4 Christmas movies (Christmas Vacation, Elf, The Grinch, Home Alone) and called it a day.  I wish some gingerbread house making would have been involved…but I’ll take what I can get.

Have you made gingerbread houses this season?  I still just can’t even over these.

And since lumps of coal for breakfast may not be the most loving way to welcome Christmas guests,  you should definitely serve them alongside a mini gingerbread house garnished hot beverage.

Or you could crumble the ‘coal’ over bowls of creamy greek yogurt or equally creamy oatmeal. 

All are acceptable festive options.

Coal Breakfast Cookies

Yield: 16 cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup oat flour (spooned into measuring cup)
2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup special dark cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup nut butter (I used almond butter)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a bowl, combine oat flour, oats, cocoa powder, sugar, flaxseed, baking soda and salt. Add in egg, applesauce, nut butter and melted butter. Combine until a dough is formed. Add in chocolate chips. On a greased baking sheet, use a retractable ice cream scooper to make 16 cookies. Bake for 10 minutes.

I highly recommend using an ice cream scooper.  If you use your hands to roll the dough into a compact ball, they come out a bit too dense.

Merry Christmas<3<3<3

  1. Your link about gingerbread houses made me think of this one: http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/12/palm-springs-gingerbread-house-omg.html
    It’s probably the best I’ve seen! Have a great Christmas Kylie! These cookies look amazing :)

  2. Theses loo fantastic… I love that they are healthy.. and they totally look like coal.

  3. These are soooo cute. You are such a cookie superstar, every time you post a cookie recipe I just wonder how you thought of it!

  4. These look amazing and I’m sure kids would go crazy for them! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Kylie! :)

  5. you can get a similar milk frother at ikea! it’s super cheap!!

  6. Calling them COAL cookies will scare people away from eating them, thus you will get more ;) Sneaky! I like it!!

  7. super fun idea, kylie! that’s some coal no one would be sad to find in their stocking.

  8. LOVE this recipe, Kylie! And as a someone from a hockey obsessed family, the ice skating comment literally made me laugh out loud :)

  9. My father-in-law works in coal mining so I’m making these tonight as part of his Christmas gift haha! Much better than real coal.

  10. These are so creative and look delicious, despite the fact that they’re meant to look like lumps of coal. Love it!

  11. Eek! Finger cuts are the worst. In August I sliced my thumb open when I was attempting to split a frozen bagel in half lengthwise. Me = dumb. But it was pretty apparent that the cut was in need of medical attention, so maybe your pinky isn’t that bad? Is it still bleeding? (If it is, that’s a bad sign). Good luck with healing :)

  12. My husband and I have a milk frother and we adore it. Definitely a good thing to put on your Christmas wish list!

  13. i could totally see myself eating this with hot chocolate!

  14. This is such a stinkin’ cute (and tasty) idea! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas :)
