Chocolate Chip Breakfast Treats

Happy Thanksgiving! What a busy and fun weekend giving thanks for family and friends, laughter and good health. My daughter loves to bake so yesterday morning we decided to bake these breakfast treats, with her favourite: chocolate chips. However, when she saw the rest of the ingredients she became “nervous”. She didn’t think it was possible to bake something delicious with almonds and oats. Well she ate her words when she sunk her teeth into these very delicious and healthy treats (if you want an even healthier recipe, I’m sure you can substitute the chocolate chips with raisins).


Yield: approximately 20

1½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
1 cup almond slivers
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp fine sea salt
2 eggs lightly beaten
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup applesauce
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp almond milk
½ cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350oF.
  2. In a food processor or blender, blend one cup of the rolled oats (reserving the other ½ cup) and the almond slivers into flour. Add to a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a food processor or blender, blend 1 cup of the coconut flakes into a fine consistency, and add to the flour.
  4. Combine the baking powder, salt and remaining oats with the other dry ingredients.
  5. In another bowl, combine all the wet ingredients.
  6. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Form batter into 1.5 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about an inch apart.
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes or until they become slightly golden. Enjoy!
