If you enjoy the flavors of Fall, these Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies will be the perfect treat! Here is what you will need to make them:

To Make the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies
To make the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies, start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet by spraying it with cooking spray. Then, in a large bowl, add the oats, oat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk together these dry ingredients and set aside.
In a separate bowl, add the pumpkin puree, applesauce, honey and vanilla. Stir these ingredients together until well combined.
Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add the egg and stir until everything is combined and the dough has formed.
Next, fold in the chocolate chips and gently stir everything together.
Using a large cookie or ice cream scooper, spoon the dough onto prepared baking sheet.
Press down gently on the dough with the palm of your hand before putting the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies into the oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges of cookies begin to lightly brown. Remove form oven and cool on pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Then, enjoy for breakfast or as a snack!
Can I warm up the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies?
Yes, just pop them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds! The Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies are delicious cold, but my kids enjoy them most when I warm them up.
What else can add to the Cookies?
Some other add-ins to try in the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies are: white chocolate chips, chopped walnuts or pecans, or M & M’s. Not a fan of chocolate? The chocolate chips can easily be omitted from the recipe.
