These savory breakfast cookies are like an omelet and biscuit rolled into one. Full of tasty savory ingredients for a low carb breakfast on the go.
Ok I’m calling these cookies but they are really more of a biscuit. Cookies sound more fun though. 🙂 I wanted something different that I could freeze and then microwave when I wanted a quick breakfast or lunch on the go so I made these savory breakfast cookies. They are low carb and grain free and they are delicious. I used the ingredients that I often use in my omelets: sausage, onions, peppers and cheese. Add a little almond flour and eggs and voila, savory breakfast cookies.
I’ve made other freezable low carb breakfast foods like my Freezable Breakfast Burritos and these Low Carb Breakfast Sandwiches so you can see I like a freezable, easy breakfast on the go kind of thing. I always seem to be in a rush for breakfast and sometimes I just plain old skip it. In those cases I’m often eating these things for lunch instead of breakfast. But I’m trying to eat breakfast, I really am.
On to the recipe. These are pretty easy to make. I sautéed the onions, peppers and sausage to precook them. When that was finished and cooled, I added it to some beaten eggs, almond flour and cheese and formed little cookies on a silicone covered cookie sheet. Baked, cooled, sampled a few and then put them in a freezer bag for my snacks and breakfasts on the go. For almond flour I really like Honeyville because they use blanched almonds to make a finer flour. But I’ve also used Blue Diamond too. Both can be found on Amazon and sometimes Costco.
Savory Breakfast Cookies
This recipe made a batch of 12 sizable cookies. I would eat two for breakfast personally. There are only 2.9g of carbs per cookie and 8.2g protein so to me that’s a decent breakfast. Well I hope you like these as much as I do. If you are on a low carb diet, sometimes variety is helpful. Even if you aren’t low carbing it, I think you and your family will like these because they are quite tasty. And for those doing Weight Watchers, each cookie s 4 Smart Points. Enjoy!
