The Karlie Kloss–Approved Breakfast You Can Make at Home

You can thank Karlie Kloss for pioneering the new cookies-for-breakfast trend. The supermodel teamed up with Momofuku Milk Bar chef and owner Christina Tosi to make a gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free baked good—The Perfect 10—that has since transformed the world of breakfast options as we know them. We think their treats are totally worth the price tag. But, if you’re feeling more of a DIY version, read on for our favorite breakfast cookie recipes—including Kloss’s.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

The secret to this Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie recipe is using two different kinds of oats—rolled and quick. Mixed with ground flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and puree, and dried cranberries, this breakfast treat has the most satisfying texture. There is no reason you should wait until fall to make these pumpkin delights. They’re good year-round!

Lemon Blackberry Breakfast Cookies

Like Kloss’s, these Lemon Blackberry Breakfast Cookies are gluten- and dairy-free. The recipe calls for applesauce instead of oil, honey instead of refined sugar, and banana instead of egg for the primer. Just add fresh blackberries (or any berry of your choice) with some lemon zest and juice, and bake. The only problem with these delicious cookies is that you won’t be able to stop eating them!

No-Bake Healthy Breakfast Cookies

This is the perfect morning recipe to try if you’re beginning to wean off the sweet stuff. Made with peanut butter (we recommend Justin’s), honey, rice crisps, oats, flaxseed, vanilla drizzle, and a light drizzle of milk chocolate, these bake-free Healthy Breakfast Cookies aren’t in the dairy-free, gluten-free category. But they are still a great source of healthy fats and grains.

Healthy Coconut Breakfast Cookies

These Coconut Chocolate Chip confections are full of healthy ingredients such as honey, coconut, sunflower seeds, and chocolate chips. All you need is a food processor (or a large bowl and a really strong arm) and a baking sheet. Cook for 12 to 14 minutes and feel free to dip your cookies in melted dark chocolate. Sprinkle with shredded coconut to make an extra-photogenic—and tasty—dessert for breakfast.

Blueberry Coconut Pecan Breakfast Cookies

This delicious Banana Pecan Granola creation is made up of everything you would throw in your oatmeal bowl, but baked into a perfect on-the-go breakfast cookie. If you make a batch before the week begins, microwave for 20 seconds before eating, and this healthy treat will be even more comforting. We love the mix of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit in this cookie dough.

The Perfect 10 (Karlie’s Kookies)

This Feed 10 Kookie has dark chocolate and almond oat and is absurdly delicious. Karlie’s 10-ingredient version is just as healthy and guilt-free as one fully loaded with sugar and dairy.
