Are you sick of breakfast cookies yet?

Too bad, so sad.

A man needs variety and having different breakfast options has been a life saver. And let’s be honest… cookies.


Who loves quest bars? I love quest bars. Although I most definitely don’t fan girl over them like some people do, in my books, they get a thumbs up- They are nutritionally pretty decent, taste good and are easy to carry around.

Now who here loves Instagram? I love Instagram! Taking photos of food, food and well….more food? What could be better?

Let’s marry quest bars and Instagram and what do you get- hashtag disasters. Seriously. The number of hashtags developed to these protein bars are ridiculous.

#questbar = okay.

#proteinbar = yes.

#snack = yes.

#betterthancake #betterthandessert #cheatmeal #foodporn #justlikecookies  = …..what?

 One hashtag which was (I think) developed from the infamous quest bar hashtag party has been #chunkporn. That, my friends, is warranted for 3 of their bars- double chocolate chunk, chocolate chip cookie dough and white chocolate and raspberry. I think that is why those three are my personal favourites- it’s like a texture sensation in the mouth. You bite into it and come across a …. Chunk.

I am ashamed to admit when I rip open one of the three mentioned flavoured Quest Bars and it is chock full of those glorious chunks- It’s like being told the Kardashians have been axed from E!. I am also ashamed to admit that the opposite happens when said flavours are void of them. It’s like being told they have started writing educational literature. (Don’t get any ideas, Kris).


So in honour of that infamous hashtag, today’s single serve breakfast cookie is full of chunks. Double chocolate chucks. Before you roll your eyes and think chocolate cookies for breakfast are a joke- take a look at the ingredients. Wholesome carbohydrates (oat flour), healthy fats (coconut oil and walnuts), an optional protein boost (protein powder) and the mix in of choice- chocolate chunks (90% lindt, to be exact).

Do me a favour (well, yourself) and make the chunks big.

  • 1/4 cup gluten free oat flour can sub for gluten free or standard white
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 1 T coconut sugar or sweetener of choice*
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2-1 scoop chocolate protein powder optional
  • 1 T coconut oil melted (or butter)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup dairy free milk of choice*
  • 2 T chopped walnuts
  • 1-4 squares dairy free dark chocolate broken into chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with a cookie sheet
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, chocolate protein powder (if using it) and baking powder and mix until combined.
  • Add the melted coconut oil and one tablespoon at a time, add the milk until a very thick batter is formed. Stir through the chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chunks.
  • Form into cookie size of choice (I went for half a golfball size) and press onto the lined baking tray. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes (depending on oven) until cooked on top and mostly firm.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the baking tray.


Depending on the add ins, you may need more/less milk- ensure the batter is think. If it's too thin, the cookies will be more chewy.
For soft baked cookies, remove from oven when barely firm.
If using a sweetened protein powder, omit the sugar.

  1. Dang, I haven’t had chocolate in more than 24 hours. Not to be concerned for my sanity; the situation will be recitfied with chocolate cake and coffee for breakfast right now 🙂 . This just sounds way too simple to pass will be happening once I’m back on home ground. More so to make up for the fact that nary a Quest bar has passed my lips (darn it South Africa!).

  2. Right now, there is no where I can go and buy a quest bar – can only purchase a whole box in Amazon and that’s too dangerous! There are some ingredients in quest bars I’m not happy with but I see their place and love the fact that the protein comes from whey and not soy! plus they taste good!
    Your cookies though, they are all good! Love the coconut sugar in it and all the chunky goodness! 🙂

  3. Honestly, I think breakfast cookies are so good. They are quick and easy and they can be eaten on the go. I don’t like to drink protein shakes but enjoy my breakfast.

  4. Not a fan of quest bars (they scare me) but definitely a fan of cookies. Especially cookies with giant chocolate chunks. ALL THE CHUNKS.
    And if people don’t want a breakfast cookie, they can just wait a few hours and have it for brunch, in my opinion. That’s like saying you don’t like dessert.

  5. I love the single serve recipes! Every time I think of the word “chunk”, it reminds me of vomit. So chunk porn is just…. no. New hashtag needed, please!

  6. Everytime you do these single serve, sweet, chunky, breakfasty/dessert recipes I get SO EXCITED. Especially when they don’t have eggs and i don’t have to risk failure with my terrible modifications of “recipe authenticity” 😉 Basically these are a sure shot for success. And I always want to make like 397 things so I find it hard to make a large recipe or attempt to divide it by 18.

    These MY FRIEND I will make, and I will attempt to make them beautiful and chunky and #chunkporn the shiiiizzz out of them all over insta 🙂 and if it deserves a #betterthansex hashtag then so be it.

  7. I had an oat fudge bar from Starbucks yesterday for recipe ‘research’. It’s how I justify most of my bad food choices haha
    I have a friend who turns his words into hashtags. He groups three or 4 words and slaps a hashtag in front of them for his ENTIRE paragraph of a caption on instragram. Sometimes it’s funny. Most times it’s annoying…

  8. You are a texture fiend my friend, and I love it because food that is all one consistency is BLAH! I don’t know if I’ll ever join the breakfast cookie trend but I have to admit that these look like a killer sack.

  9. Arman you crack me up! Seriously I give a second thought to how I name my recipes now… I think to myself “What would Arman say?” Ha ha these look delish I’m pinning!

  10. I’m not sure I’d ever want to meet the person who could get sick of cookies. Quest bars, on the other hand, are an obsession I -don’t- get. Please stop with the #chunk and #yolk porn. It is not sexy.

    And I’m currently eating chocolate as we speak (with dates and almond butter), so I win the awesomeness prize.

  11. Cookies for breakfast yes! And healthier than that cookie cereal we have here in America. I think this may need to be served on the side of my breakfast tomorrow morning or at least a snack after my workout simce it includes protein powder.

  12. I always kind of brush past breakfast cookies because I never think I’d be able to be full from one. I’m too obsessed with eggs and how full they keep me! But honestly lately I’ve been rushing out the door and I end up having to buy breakfast. That $$ adds up! This would be a great idea to make ahead of time and then grab and go – I’m also convinced it’d be deeeelicious with a cup of coffee – so I’m sold 🙂

  13. I for one really love the single serve recipes, I’m single and a total cookie fiend so the built in portion control is soooo helpful

  14. You know what my latest chocolate heavy “meal” was. ‘Nough said!

    You’ve forgotten the cookies and cream questbar. #doyouevenchunk ??

  15. Oh wow. CHUNKS!!!! It’s like Granola Clusters, it’s the only thing that interests me in a baked good. Seriously, if there are no chunks, where’s the point? I want to cry, chunkless.
    And I love that you used Lindt. Such an honor.
    Printed. I hope they make it out of the oven before I ate the whole raw dough.

  16. I just finished eating these for breakfast and they were wonderful. They are great for us folks who like a special sweet treat and you are trying not to eat donuts!
