Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! 

It’s 2020 and there are no rules, right? I mean… I started eating cookies for breakfast way before 2020 hit, but it just seems way more acceptable now, haha. 

Luckily with these Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies we don’t have to sacrifice on a filling and nutritious breakfast –  we can have our cookie and eat it too! 

These breakfast cookies are made with more oats than flour and packed with chia seeds, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and of course some dark chocolate chips for good measure 🙂  The oats and chia seeds provide a lot of fiber filling you up and giving you sustained energy throughout the morning.

How to Make Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies


There is nothing fancy about these cookies, just mix together all the ingredients and chill the dough in the fridge for at least an hour before baking. Drop the cookies on to a lined or greased baking sheet using a cookie scoop. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes and then allow to cool. That’s it!

How to Store Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies


This recipe uses a full 15oz can of pumpkin puree. That is done on purpose because I hate having small amounts of pumpkin puree left over from a recipe. Also, it makes sense to make a large batch of these cookies because they can be easily stored in the freezer. Make sure the cookies are cooled completely and then transfer them to a gallon sized plastic bag or an airtight container and put them in the freezer.

The night before you know you are going to want one for breakfast, take it out of the freezer and allow it to defrost overnight on the counter, it will taste fresh and moist in the morning. If you wake up in the morning craving a cookie, but you didn’t take one out the night before, no problem. Pop one in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and you’ll have a warm cookie that will taste fresh out of the oven!
