Oatmeal cookie sandwiches with yogurt filling on a white plate

I could not wait to share this recipe with you all! My new favorite on-the-go breakfast, made with my all time favorite siggi’s yogurt flavor- no sugar added banana cinnamon! I’m completely obsessed with this flavor—it’s always been impossible to find a flavored yogurt without tons of sugar added until siggi’s changed the game.

Sometimes you just want something a little fancier than plain yogurt! The siggi’s blue lid labels are all flavors that are simply sweetened with fruit, with no added sugars in the mix.

While I love a good savory breakfast, often I crave something sweeter to enjoy with my coffee. Bonus points if it’s something quick that doesn’t take up extra time in my morning!

The extra creamy banana cinnamon yogurt is sandwiched between two lower sugar almond butter oatmeal cookies for the perfect filling, satisfying, and easy grab-and-go breakfast (or snack!). The cookies are super easy to make, and make the perfect amount for the week. You can keep them premade in the freezer, or have the cookies and yogurt ready to go to make fresh cookie sandwiches quickly in the mornings. Pro tip: these would be amazing with any of siggi’s no added sugar line if you want to change it up!

The oatmeal cookies are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like oats, almond butter, and almond flour. Plus, they are refined sugar free and instead lightly sweetened with coconut sugar– a more natural sweetener option. The siggi’s yogurt is the perfect filling for these for that ultra creamy addition, while adding a boost of protein, healthy probiotics, and extra flavor without any added sugar. These cookie sandwiches are just so delish!

Low Sugar Gluten Free Breakfast Oatmeal Cookie Sandwich With Cinnamon Yogurt Filling

Yummy low sugar gluten free breakfast cookies made with simple ingredients, like almond flour and oats. Filled with the most delicious banana cinnamon yogurt filling for a quick and easy breakfast or snack! 



For the cookies:

  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¾ cup old fashioned oats (gluten free if needed)
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

For the filling:


  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (almond four, rolled oats, oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt).
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk all wet ingredients (egg, coconut sugar, avocado oil, almond butter, and vanilla extract) together until smooth.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients, then set dough in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. This helps the dough to be less sticky and easier to scoop into cookies.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Scoop dough onto parchment paper into 10-12 cookies, then use hands to smooth dough and slightly flatten the dough.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then allow to completely cool.
  7. Store in the refrigerator to make cookie sandwiches on the go. I add 2-3 tbsp of yogurt per sandwich, but you can fill them as much as you’d like!*


*Note, you can also fill the cookies ahead of time and freeze them, but you will need to allow them to thaw before enjoying so making them fresh is preferred.

    So delicious! I’ve even got my dad hooked.

  2. Kat says:

    I absolutely *love* this recipe. I usually just make them as cookies instead of assembling into sandwiches. Also, because I’m lazy and don’t want to blend oats to make oat flour, I usually just sub almond flour for the oat flour and they always turn out great. I’ve also made a few batches where I added in a handful of butterscotch chips which was amazing. Love these cookies!

  3. Emily says:

    Made these for my office one winter morning and everyone went nuts! Amazing flavor, the yogurt in the middle makes them feel decadent on a great way and adds protein. 100% going to remake!

  4. Abby Johnson says:

    these were AMAZING!! I knew they would be good but i love the texture and flavor of the salty sweet!! And with no refined sugar they don’t hurt my tum 🙂

  5. Claire says:

    Is it possible to substitute maple syrup for coconut sugar?

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      I haven’t tried it- they may turn out a little more dry but it might be fine! Let me know if you do!

  6. Megan says:

    Just made these for my family and they turned out sooo fluffy! Used melted coconut oil instead of avocado and couldn’t tell the difference:)

  7. Sharon says:

    Looks so good! Could you substitute the almond flour for oat flour?

  8. Sunshine says:

    SO GOOD! The texture of the cookies are gooey, chewy and moist! My grocery store didn’t have the banana and cinnamon siggi so I sub’d for vanilla and cinnamon for a breakfast sandwich. Surprisingly, one was really filling! The night before when I made them, I had another sandwich and filled it up with enlightened vanilla bean ice cream for a late night dessert!

  9. Alexandra says:

    Yours are the only I could find that look divine and have no white sugar and little sugar overall- dream come true! Any other suggestions for switching up the filling? Could I use other flavors of yogurt or simply a plain one? Or do you have a low sugar cream filling so I could transport back in time to one of my childhood favorite sandwich cookies sans all the sugar? Making these ASAP! Love your blog!!

  10. Bella says:

    I used this to re-create a clean version of a childhood favorite, oatmeal creme sandwich cookies. It worked perfectly with an AIP buttercream frosting I whipped up! Any suggestions for tweaking it further? Cloves, nutmeg, touch of molasses, maple sugar over the coconut sugar? Just checking in, and thank you so much for honoring both our health & taste buds with this kind of baking! More please- I love your blog so much!!

  11. Steven says:

    These cookies are amazing! I can’t believe it tastes so good without butter. And the spice/vanilla/oatmeal profile is spot on. I’ll keep making these 😍
