Healthy Strawberry Cookies

We love starting our days with healthy cookies! Our favorites include blueberry breakfast cookies, flourless breakfast cookies, and these strawberry oatmeal cookies.

Breakfast cookies are my new favorite way to use up fresh strawberries. I’ve been meaning to develop a strawberry oatmeal cookies recipe, especially after an abundance of both old fashioned oats and strawberries. 

These soft and chewy strawberry cookies are loaded with strawberry flavor, and completely naturally sweetened. They are hearty, filling, and keep you satisfied for hours! They also happen to be completely vegan, gluten free, and dairy free!

How to make strawberry oatmeal cookies

Adding fresh strawberries and baking them into cookies was a fantastic way to use them up. They also provide extra moisture (perfect for softer cookies!) and some natural sweetness. When paired with the mashed banana base, you’d easily satisfy the sweet tooth. 

The Ingredients

  • Rolled oats– Gives the cookies the chewy texture. I opted to use gluten free rolled oats, to keep them gluten free. 
  • Peanut butter– Use a no added sugar brand, and ensure it is smooth and drippy in texture. You can also use almond butter or cashew butter.
  • Banana– The riper the banana, the sweeter your strawberry cookies will be! 
  • Strawberries– Chop the strawberries finely, so they are evenly dispersed within the cookies. Reserve a few to top the cookies with!
  • Chocolate Chips– Optional, but highly recommended! 

The Instructions 

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or use a Silpat cookie sheet. Set aside.
  • Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients, except for your chocolate chips, and mix well. Using a rubber spatula, fold in your chocolate chips.
  • Step 3: Form 16 small balls of cookie dough. Place each ball on the lined tray or cookie sheet and press each one in a cookie shape. If desired, top with extra chocolate chips. Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, or until golden on the edges.
  • Step 4: Allow the cookies to cool on the tray/sheet for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Can I use frozen strawberries? 

Fresh strawberries are preferred, but frozen strawberries can also be used. I prefer the former as I’ve found the frozen kind tends to be less sweet. 

If you use frozen strawberries, be sure to thaw them out completely, and use a paper towel to remove any extra moisture. 

Strawberry Oatmeal Cookie Tips

  • Do not overbake the cookies, as the exterior will become overly hard and the center be rubbery. Start checking the cookies around the 12-minute mark and remember, they continue to cook while cooling down.
  • Either old fashioned oats (rolled oats) or quick oats can be used. Old fashioned oats will yield chewier cookies and instant oats will be lighter and a little softer in the center.
  • These cookies aren’t overly sweet and rely on the strawberries, banana and chocolate chips for sweetness. Feel free to add some liquid stevia or maple syrup for extra sweetness.
  • Use a combination of mini chocolate chips and standard chocolate chips, for the best texture.
  • Keep these cookies nut free, and sub out the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter. You can also replace it with tahini or wow butter

Storing and freezing strawberry oatmeal cookies

  • To store: These healthy strawberry cookies are eggless and aren’t the best to keep at room temperature. Store leftover cookies in the refrigerator and keep them refrigerated until ready to enjoy. They will keep fresh (in a sealed container) for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze: Healthy strawberry cookies are freezer friendly and will keep well frozen for up to 1 month. Keep them stored in ziplock bags.

  1. I just made a modified version of this (half almond flour & half oats, half peanut butter half almond butter) and my two toddlers (ages 2&3) are already on their second ones!!

  2. I made these today, and they are really good!! I did half oatmeal and half almond flour (because I didn’t have enough oatmeal). I used a little more strawberries and chocolate chips. I did add some pure maple syrup (1/8 cup) as well. The cookies are not overly sweet, which is really nice, as is the combo of strawberry & chocolate 🙂 I will definitely make these again. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Could you add protein powder to these to give them more protein and if so how much? Wasn’t sure if the protein powder would change the consistency.

      1. 5 stars
        Saying that I am an EVERYTHING oatmeal fanatic is an understatement. I am always on the hunt for beat oatmeal bakes and these cookies are so good, so good that every child of mine ranging from 5-15 ate these like it was a regular chocolate chip cookie. These are so easy to make. Simple ingredients and very little effort! Definitely a Nobel Prize winner.

  3. Absolutely love these cookies! Although if you want a smaller alternative rather than a big batch, half the recipe but it’s the best breakfast idea ever!

  4. 5 stars
    i absolutely love these cookies! they’re my go to snack/breakfast. although they aren’t filling, the flavors are amazing!

  5. Have you ever used powder peanut butter to reduce fat? I could add water to it and make the 1/2 measurement of peanut butter for this recipe. I’m wondering how it would work in this recipe…hmmm …any thoughts?

  6. These cookies look delish. Love the strawberries & chocolate chips. The bananas and peanut butter, not so much. Very not so much. Saw the apple sauce substitution suggestion for the banana. Curious if there’s anything else that could sub as a replacment for the peanut butter besides the almond butter (still tastes nutty) or the sunflower seed butter – seeing conflicting taste reviews – some say it doesn’t taste like peanut butter, but like sunflower seeds, which could be ok. Others say it’s an excellent substitute for those who love peanut butter but can’t eat it. I’m not an experienced baker or familiar with substitutions, so suggestions are greatly appreciated 🙂

  7. Finally got around to giving this a go this morning! Kids and parents alike loved them! We substituted strawberries for 1/2 cup of blueberries! Loved them!

  8. They look delicious, I can’t wait to make them and I can’t wait to try them. A healthy breakfast that I can make ahead of time and eat on the go is always a plus. 😊 I do have to tell you however, that you mention 5 ingredients, not 4.😉
