Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

A few weeks ago, the husband was munching on a “prepackaged” breakfast cookie, and texted me, “Can we try to make our own breakfast cookie?”. On a side note…I just love when he speaks in “us” form cause we know who’s doing the baking.

But oh the sheer happiness this gave me. He has come to appreciate REAL food. So I got into the kitchen today and whipped up this breakfast cookie inspired by pumpkin oatmeal, a breakfast favorite around our house.

Goodbye garbage cookie; Hello homemade!

These cookies make a yummy and nutritious grab-n-go breakfast or snack.

    These look lovely. Such healthy ingredients. I've never seen pumpkin butter or pumpkin oatmeal in the UK. And pumpkins aren't in season at the mo. Could I substitute the pumpkin with pumpkin seed butter, almond butter or apple butter?
