Are the kids (and adults) refusing to eat breakfast claiming there is no time? Perhaps these Apple Sauce Oat Breakfast Nuggets will do the trick. They look like cookies, but are packed with nutrition and less than 1 teaspoon of sugar each.

Apple Sauce Oat Breakfast Nuggets
Dark Brown Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
0:09 to 0:10
Yield :
18 cookies


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup sprouted wheat flour or white whole wheat flour*
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 egg (optional – an egg will make these a little lighter)
  • 1 cup raisins or other dried fruits
  • 1/2 cup chopped raw almonds or other nuts or seeds

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  2. Stir together oats, flour, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients, whisk together apple sauce, vanilla, sugar, salt, oil, and egg if using.
  4. Add dry ingredients. When combined add fruit and nuts.
  5. Scoop onto cookie sheets into 2-3 tablespoon size mounds.
  6. Press flat to about 1/3-inch.
  7. Place in oven for 9-10 minutes.
  8. Cool on a wire rack. 
  9. Once cooled, these can be stored in freezer for a quick snack.
