These yummy Trail Mix Breakfast Cookies with Psyllium are packed with fiber (1 teaspoon of psyllium per cookie) along with additional fiber from rolled oats, dried fruit and seeds. This adds up to 10 grams of fiber… 1/2 to 1/3 of what most people need in a day. These breakfast cookies are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and have no refined sugar.
But… before you rejoice, you need to make sure your breakfast cookies include the trifecta of filling nutrients so you don’t end of jonesing for breakfast #2 in an hour or so. You can’t just grab an Oreo at 7am and call it a breakfast cookie, alright (Sad face)?
But fear not! My Trail Mix Breakfast Cookies with Psyllium feel like a treat but are packed with the nutrients you need to get through your morning. Here’s how they stack up (haha cookie pun)!

3 Filling Nutrients
These cookies are made with high fibre ingredients such as whole grains and seeds. Plus, I’ve added psyllium fiber which helps you stay fuller longer and may help you control your blood sugar and lower cholesterol. Love it!

Protein is the most satisfying macronutrient. It also takes more energy to burn off (called the “thermic effect of food”). Load up your cookies with seeds and nuts or nut butter. These breakfast cookies have some pepitas and peanut butter to get some protein into your morning.
Fat makes food taste yummy! It’s satiating and making it the bad guy has backfired on us big time. Get some healthy fats into your breakfast cookies. You’ll get it here with the peanut butter and coconut oil.
3 Ingredients that Make You Hungry
1. Refined Carbohydrates
2. Refined Sugar
3. Artificial Sweeteners
You won’t find any of these ingredients in these breakfast cookies! It’s all whole grains from rolled oats and quinoa flour and the sweetness comes from a small amount of maple syrup and dried cranberries. Yum!
Oh, and did I mention some chocolate chips to make your morning better?
Be still, my heart…
Vegan Baking Hack
Instead of using eggs to bind these breakfast cookies together, I used one of my favorite vegan baking hacks… chia eggs!
How To Make Chia Eggs
Wondering how to make chia eggs? I have a video for that!
If you’ve tried making flax “eggs”, chia eggs are even easier. My issue with flax is you either have to grand it in batches which adds to the prep time, or you buy it ground up and it goes rancid faster than you can use it.
In contrast, chia eggs are super easy to make. Chia eggs only require mixing with water, waiting 5 minutes and you’re ready to add them to your baking recipes.
