Breaking news: We figured out how to eat cookies for breakfast (and not feel bad about it). Since granola is already a morning-friendly food, we took the glorified yogurt topping and transformed it into something a bit more substantial and--let's face it--exciting.

½ cup neutral oil (like olive, coconut or peanut)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

¾ cup brown sugar

1 egg white

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

¾ teaspoon baking soda

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup shredded coconut

¾ cup sliced almonds

¼ cup flaxseeds

¼ cup sesame seeds

1½ cups fresh berries (like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or a mixture)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the oil with the vanilla extract, brown sugar and honey to combine. Add the egg and egg white, and mix to combine.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the cinnamon, salt and baking soda to combine. Add to the large bowl and mix just until combined.

4. Stir in the oats, coconut, almonds, flaxseeds, sesame seeds and berries, mixing just until evenly distributed.
