If your family is anything like mine when it comes to the flavor of pumpkin in the form of cookies, then they will LOVE these as much as we do. Meet my family’s latest breakfast and snack addiction…my Pumpkin Pecan Breakfast Cookies!
Along with Fall comes pumpkin. Pumpkin anything…pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin decorations, pumpkins to carve, pumpkin pie…you name it, we love it! So when trying to come up with a few fun Fall recipes for all of you, these were at the top of my list. My Blueberry Banana Breakfast Cookies from last year were such a huge hit everywhere, so I knew I had to come up with a Fall version of these lovely healthy breakfast treats. They are vegan, gluten-free, and free of refined sugar. They are similar to my previous breakfast cookies. You can think of them as oatmeal, but in the form of a cookie, full of good-for-you ingredients. Since these cookies contain pumpkin instead of bananas, they are much more moist in texture, making them even more irresistible. After 3 trials (each of which was completely devoured by my kids within 24 hours), I turned them into the perfect Fall breakfast cookies!
My favorite part about these cookies is that they can be enjoyed throughout the day. Simply grab-and-go for a quick breakfast, enjoy them as an afternoon snack, pack them in your kids school lunches, or even enjoy them for dessert after dinner.
So what are you waiting for? Make these cookies! I mean, what better way to start off your Fall mornings than with one (or two or three) of these Pumpkin Pecan Breakfast Cookies! If you do make them, I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment here below the recipe or take a picture of your cookies and tag me on Instagram or Facebook. It seriously makes my day when see you guys make my creations. Thank you. Happy Fall!
