Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted a new recipe! I intended to get these Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies out a few weeks ago, but since I’m back to working full time AND back in school, it’s been a little crazy around here! Since the start of September, I’ve been totally soaking up fall, especially now that the temps have dropped. I’m incorporating lots of warm spices into nearly every dish, making lots of soups and stews, and finding ways to make everyday life a little extra cozy. A few weeks ago, I made these Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies which are gluten and egg free. They’re perfect for a quick breakfast or an easy snack and are packed with pumpkin, spices, oats, raisins, and a little chocolate too! I did my best to keep sugar to a minimum, so besides the raisins and chocolate chips, the only sugar is a quarter cup of raw honey. These Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies will be ready in just over 30 minutes and will leave your home smelling spiced and cozy!

How to Make Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Then line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. In a large bowl, whisk the oats, pumpkin seeds, raisins, chocolate chips, flax seed, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

Place the butter and honey in a small, microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments until the butter is melted. Stir after each heating. In a medium bowl, whisk the butter/honey mixture with the pumpkin and yogurt. Then pour all these ingredients into the large bowl of dry ingredients.

Use a wooden spoon to mix all the ingredients together. Then use a two tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the dough and place it on the cookie sheets. Press the cookies flat (about ½ inch thick) and space them an inch apart.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

How to Make Homemade Pumpkin Purée

Although you can certainly used canned pumpkin for these Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies, if you have some extra time, I highly recommend making your own at home. If you don’t have access to pie pumpkins, feel free to substitute any other type of squash such as butternut or buttercup.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the pumpkin or squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place each half face-down on the baking sheet and roast until the squash is easily pierced with a fork. Baking time will vary based on the type and size of squash, so check it after about 20 minutes and adjust as needed.

When the pumpkin is fully cooked, let it cool. Then scoop out the flesh and transfer it to food processor to blend until smooth. Then it can be added to the cookies (or any other pumpkin recipe)!
