Chewy Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

Y’all, chewy pumpkin breakfast cookies are the best thing to come out of my kitchen recently. I whipped up a batch to take hiking and it was the perfect snack! Plus, the extras make great coffee companions. The best part? You probably have all the ingredients on hand (except the pumpkin, unless you’re like me and stock 6 cans at all times).

The quick oats and pumpkin combine to give these cookies the perfect chewy texture! And I don’t mean to brag, but I think I’ve achieved the perfect level of sweetness with these bad boys. They’re definitely a cookie, but they’re not too sweet, making them tolerable in the morning (anyone else turned off by super sweet things before 11am?!). Plus, the pumpkin, oats, flour, and sugar pack a carb-y punch to get you through a hike, workout, or shift. With nut butter spread on top they’re a nutritional powerhouse of a snack!

…THAT’S ALL, FOLKS!

Easiest recipe ever, right? You don’t even have to shape the cookies – I just used a scoop to drop them on the pan then called it a day, plus the dishes were done by the time the cookies were. Win win!
