Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

There’s nothing wrong with cookies for breakfast—when they’re this delicious AND nutritious! Made with real pumpkin, oats, nuts, and raisins, these pumpkin breakfast cookies taste like chewy, soft-baked granola treats. And, the fragrant blend of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg makes every bite so comforting. For a bit of extra holiday-time indulgence, I made these chocolate chip pumpkin breakfast cookies! Or, use cacao nibs instead for a lower-sugar nutritional boost. Either way, these goodies are still loaded with wholesome fuel to power you through the morning!

Pumpkin seeds and pecans are both great sources of healthy, satiating fats, as well as dietary fiber to keep you feeling full. And, they add a satisfying crunch to your chewy pumpkin breakfast cookies—which I am ALL about. With oats as the main ingredient, each cookie is also full of slow-digesting carbs for longer-lasting energy. Plus, oats keep these wholesome pumpkin breakfast cookies whole grain and gluten free! At just over 200 calories each, they’re a tasty meal prep breakfast that make on-the-go mornings so much more fun.
