Are mornings a little haywire around your house?

They definitely can be around here around my home!

For some reason I always feel like I have infinite amounts of time in the mornings….

Then somehow it suddenly becomes 7:45 and we have to all be making some serious moves to get out of the house on time.

I am a little embarrassed to admit that breakfast is sometimes eaten on the 15 minute ride to school.

So what better thing then some delicious Cranberry Maple No Bake Breakfast Cookies to help with our busy mornings? They are quick to make, healthy, and the no bake is perfect for us right now since we are without an oven for an extended period of time!

All the ingredients in a small bowls.

Combine these with a glass of milk and a piece of fruit and you have a nicely balanced delicious breakfast.

Full of such lovely ingredients…they reduce the guilt of breakfast on the go.

They make a perfect little nutritious after school snack too.

  • 1/2 cup of creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp. of real Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 1/4 cup Flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned Oats uncooked
  • 2-3 tbsp. each of dried cranberries slivered almonds, and mini chocolate chips


  1. In a medium sized microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter and syrup and microwave for 20 seconds or so until you can easily mix the two ingredients together.
  2. To the same bowl, add the rice krispies, flax, and oats and stir until combined.
  3. Lastly, add in the dried cranberries, slivered almonds, and chocolate chips and stir again until thoroughly blended.
  4. Form the mixture into small balls in your hand and then gently press each ball to flatten it like a cookie. {This part gets a little sticky - stop and wash your hands as needed}.
  5. Put the newly formed and flattened cookies on a tray and place it in the freezer for about a 1/2 hour to firm them up.
  6. Store in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer.


I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

    1. Hi Michelle! I was just thinking about that same question because we are nut-free at my kid’s school. I was wondering if it would work to make them with WOW butter (the fake peanut butter you can get that is made with soybean) or possibly even with Sunflower butter?? I’m not certain… I haven’t tried it. But I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I might just add a little bit of vanilla to the recipe as well if you use a nut butter substitute.

  1. These look so yummy, Krista! I’ve made similar ones but never with cranberries or rice crispies! I might have to whip up a batch for after school snacks! Have a great day!
