I know it’s always weird to see the words breakfast and cookie together, side by side, but don’t let the word cookie fool you here. This on the go Oatmeal Coconut Breakfast Cookie is delicious and healthy! What’s even better is that it’s super quick to make and “bake” in the microwave.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and then add the brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Whisk together the mixture until it’s smooth. Add the applesauce, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, wheat germ, and shredded coconut. Once all of the ingredients are mixed well, divide the mixture into 5 large microwave-safe ramekins or mugs. Pop them in the microwave, one at a time, on high power for 60 to 70 seconds-until ends are baked around edges but still somewhat soft in the center. Remove and cool on a baking rack. Viola! Store in an air-tight container.
If you’re tired of the same old breakfast bar, try this quick and easy Oatmeal Coconut Breakfast Cookie. And If you’re always short on time in the morning -and who isn’t-just make them the night before and they’re all ready to go when you head out the door. Your taste buds will definitely thank you!
