Breakfast-on-the-Go Biscuits

These biscuits have no added sugar and are gluten free if  gluten free oats are used, such as Only Oats. They have a good flavor and are still good the next day, or the next! 

  • 1 1/3 cups oat flour (gluten free or regular)  -  you can use your coffee grinder to turn oat flakes into oat flour, if you wish. 
  • 1/4 cup almond flour 
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder 
  • 3 tbsp butter 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 rounded tablespoon mayonnaise (I used Miracle Whip) - or sour cream 
  • milk or buttermilk to make 3/4 cup 
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries 
  1. Blend dry ingredients together
  2. Cut in butter until you have a uniform crumb
  3. Put egg and mayonnaise in a cup and add enough milk to make 3/4 cup
  4. Stir liquid into flour mixture and stir just until well blended 
  5. Stir in cranberries 
  6. Drop by tablespoon onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper 
  7. Bake for 15 minutes @ 425 degree. 


  1. I've been wanting a breakfast cookie recipe for some time, so thanks for posting this. Why buy those "power bars" at the store? Why not just make your own? I expect you could probably also add nuts, if you wanted.

    1. definitely add more nuts ... and seeds or whatever else strikes your breakfast fancy!
