IngredientsNo-Bake Breakfast Cookies

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I haven’t tried a natural version with this recipe and can’t vouch for it working)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt, optional
  • 1/2 cup Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, not cooked
  • Melted chocolate drizzle: 3 tablespoons milk or dark chocolate chips
  • Add-ins: raisins, chopped up nuts, mini chocolate chips (about 2 tbsp.)


In a medium-sized bowl, combine the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and salt. Microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir until combined. In that same bowl, add in the Rice Krispie cereal, flaxseed, and oats. Stir together until completely combined. Add in the optional add-ins if desired. Place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes for easier forming. Form balls with the mixture and then flatten the balls in your hand to create a cookie shape. If desired, melt 3 tbsp. of milk chocolate chips in the microwave. Put the melted chocolate in a small Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the tip of the bag. Drizzle the chocolate across the cookies and let the chocolate harden. Store cookies in an airtight container for 4-5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Breakfast idea via
