Belvita Cookies

Belvita cookies are a popular store bought snack or breakfast option. They are similar to Granola Bites. They come in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, and fruit. My personal favorite though is the Brown Sugar Cinnamon variety. I used to buy them in bulk at Sam’s Club.. not anymore!

If you and your kids are the same way (ahem, eating these 24/7), I’m about to change your life. Not only are my homemade version extremely tasty, but they are packed with oats and whole wheat helping you have a balanced breakfast. I mean, I feel better about giving my kids these instead of sugary cereal for breakfast!

Oh and bonus: They’ll be ready to go into the oven to bake before the oven is even preheated! They re SO easy to make.

Ingredients in homemade Belvita Breakfast Biscuits

When making this recipe I looked at the ingredients listed on the Belvita package and took that into account. I used all the same ingredients to get the recipe as close as possible! Check the recipe card below for exact amounts.

  • Whole Wheat Flour– We use equal parts whole wheat flour and oats to give us a whole grain base to our breakfast biscuit.
  • Rolled Oats– use old fashioned, rolled oats. Not the quick oats!
  • Canola Oil– I was surprised when I saw Oil included on the ingredient list on the package, not butter. I tested it both ways (with oil and melted butter), and let me tell you, oil is FAARRRR superior. That is how we get that crispy, melt in your mouth, crunch that we know and expect from the store bought version as an end result.
  • Egg– just one egg to help bind everything tougher.
  • Brown Sugar– Just 1/4 cup
  • Granulated Sugar– again, just 1/4 cup- only 1/2 cup of sugar in this entire batch!
  • Molasses- Again, an ingredient in their recipe! I love the flavor this gives the cracker/cookie. Gives it a deeper brown sugar flavor.
  • Cinnamon– this gives our biscuit a nice flavor- the cinnamon isn’t overpowering at all!
  • Salt
  • Baking Soda– this was also an ingredient on the back of the package, just enough to give it a little rise and help bind the dry ingredients together while baking.
  • Vanilla Extract– this helps flavor the biscuit.

How to make Belvita Breakfast Biscuits at home

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. First, add all of your ingredient to the bowl of a stand mixer or in a medium sized bowl with an electric hand mixer.
  3. Mix until well combined.
  4. The mixture will be crumbly but should hold together if you squeeze a portion in your hand.
  5. Pour the mixture into a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. (I find a silicone baking mat to be easier with this recipe)
  6. Press the mixture into the pan using a rolling pin or your hands. Press to compact the mixture together in the pan.
  7. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and immediately use a pizza cutter to cut the breakfast biscuits into medium sized squares.
  9. Allow the finished crackers to cool completely on the pan. If they are still slightly soft, you can put them back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

They can be, depending on specific ingredients and how they are eaten. They have whole grains, a lower sugar content than most commercial breakfast products. In my recipe, each breakfast biscuit only has 5 grams of sugar, 5 grams of total fat and 90 calories.

What are the benefits of Belvita Cookies?

They are a quick and easy grab and go snack or breakfast, plus they have whole grains which is good for sustaining energy instead of having quick energy followed by a sugar crash.

    1. Hi Angela- I haven’t tested these with all purpose flour so I am unsure how they would turn out. If you end up giving it a try, let me know how it goes!

      I want to try this recipe. I just finished a batch with coconut oil (not this recipe)…. way to much coconut flavor…. yuck. I really like canola oil I definitely think it will be so much better
      with that vs coconut oil. All purpose white flour will work, I have seen other recipes that call for it. Wheat is so much healthier and I think it gives it better flavor. Makes it “heartier” The Aldis brown sugar & cinnamon breakfast biscuits use whole wheat. I personally think they are better tasting than the brand name. These are one of the few things my 3 year old daughter will eat….

      hello do you think it’s the same ingredients minus the cinnamon and vanilla extract in order to make the blueberry biscuits?? just add blueberries or dried blueberries…

  1. 5 stars
    These are really good. Next time I May pulse the oats so they are a finer texture. I made a batch last night and plan to make another batch today to get us through the week. Great!!

  2. If you can believe it, my kids refuse this flavor of the store-bought ones, they will only eat the blueberry ones! Do you have any suggestions of changing this recipe to the blueberry flavor instead?

      I added a cup of dried cranberries to mine and it worked like a charm! Maybe try dried bluberries (ALDI sells them, FYI).

      I further altered the recipe by subbing honey for the molasses, my own 50/50 mix of white and turbinado sugar for the white/brown she used, and reduced the salt to 1/8 tsp. Delicious! 😋 🍪

      Thank you for the core receipe.💗 I don’t think I’ll ever buy store bought again! 🙅

  3. Can’t wait to try this recipe. My son only eats the chocolate ones. Have you tried that? I figured take out the cinnamon and add cocoa powder.

    These turned out great! I used all purpose flour because that’s what I had, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. These biscuits turned out delicious and crunchy just like Belvitas! I’ve been trying to trim our grocery budget, and these come out way cheaper than the packaged version and they were so easy. Thanks for the wonderful copycat recipe!

  5. Hi there! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Belvita cinnamon and brown sugar with vanilla cream sandwich cookies. Since they are so hard to find, I want to make my own. I cannot figure out how to make vanilla cream to taste like the original. Any ideas?? I’d love to have a recipe for that vanilla cream!!

  6. I love that I found this recipe for BelVita cookies! I’m so thrilled. I’m cutting down on sugars, calories, etc and this helps so much in this transition. And your recipe has less sugars and calories than the store-bought ones! Thank you a million times!

    I’ve had a lot of luck with adding anywhere from a quarter to a half of a cup of nut butter to add some protein and an equally random amount of flax seed and wheat germ for some extra nutrients. The nut butter makes them slightly chewier, but I enjoy it. The whole recipe is super flexible and I’ve made a bunch of flavor variations in the past few weeks, and I would love to try swirling about a half to a quarter cup of jam through them to get big chewy fruit windows ( tell me how it goes if you try it!). Making these has become a go-to part of my Sunday routine so I can have them all through the week with tea and coffee.
    Thanks<3
