Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies


I can’t tell you how happy I am to be in our new place and back in a proper kitchen. In between all the unpacking, I’ve been taking the time to test out all the recipe ideas I’ve had in my head for the last few months. As soon as the cool air hit, I started craving pumpkin flavoured everything. So naturally, I combined breakfast + pumpkin + cookies in one bowl and out came these magical little things! These cookies are hearty and packed with autumn flavours, not to mention they are made with no added sugar or butter. Only the good stuff here, naturally sweetened with honey, maple syrup, dried fruits and combined with whole grains. It’s like a little bowl of oatmeal on the go!
