When you need a quick breakfast on the go, what do you reach for? A smoothie is a great option, but with cooler weather on its way, you might be looking for something a little heartier. Enter: the breakfast cookie.

Let’s get one thing straight: These cookies are not like the sugar- and butter-laden kind you’ll find on a dessert plate. With oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, chopped almonds, and dried cherries, they’re more similar to granola bars. Unlike granola bars, however, these cookies are not dry, thanks to the almond butter and applesauce.

Eat a couple on your commute or stash a few in your desk drawer for an emergency snack when the 3 p.m. munchies roll around.
