I’m really get into the fall spirit.  My Halloween decorations have been up, I visited a pumpkin patch yesterday and loaded up on pumpkins, and I’m using a ton of pumpkin in my recipes lately.

These pumpkin breakfast cookies have been a staple in my house for over a month, and they make for a pretty exciting breakfast. 

Cookies for breakfast are always a great way to start the day. 🙂

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

These healthy pumpkin oatmeal cookies are jam packed with wholesome ingredients, and they’re still delicious enough to feel like a treat.

These breakfast cookies are made with whole grain rolled oats, unrefined sugar and minimal oil, and have plenty of pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor.

The dried cranberries add color and chewiness, the pepitas add protein and crunch, and the chocolate chips are just plain necessary.

Because chocolate makes everything better.
