If you are a fan of grab-n-go breakfasts, or better yet, COOKIES for breakfast, be sure to also check out these Cranberry Breakfast Cookies, these Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies, this recipe for the Best Dang Granola Bars EVER, and if you planned ahead a little, these Make Ahead Breakfast Bakes.

Soooooo these cookies are probably kind of cheating at being called actual breakfast. BUT. Hear me out, ok? Because there are oats involved. Plus fresh fruit. Also peanut butter, which, I know it seems odd given the white chocolate and blueberries, but trust me on this one, guys. Oh! And it’s CRUNCHY peanut butter, which means extra protein for extra good breakfast cookies.

White Chocolate Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies are amazing with a cup of coffee. They are easy to grab when you are late because a puppy hid your shoe and then you had to re-assess your entire outfit choice because nothing else matches.

Please tell me I’m not alone on this.

AND if we are keeping it really, there’s probably not much more sugar happening here than there would be in a store bought granola bar.

If you have never made cookies with fresh fruit before, get ready for a big surprise in ultra-moist baked goods. Is moist still a word people cringe at, or are we over that, yet? Because thinking of another word to accurately describe how tender and perfect fresh fruit cookies can be is not that simple.

When you bake blueberry muffins, you know how the blueberries get this really intense roasted berry color, and they sometimes explode inside the baked batter so you have this little pocket of tye-dyed flavor perfection? Well these cookies will do the same thing. The white chocolate chips offer some richness, and to me make taste just a tiny bit cheesecake-ey. Never a bad thing.

You can substitute almond butter for the peanut butter. Either way you are adding protein and flavor to what is probably one of the best cookies I’ve ever made. And once I made cookies that yielded a marriage proposal, so I’m pretty good with my cookie game.
