Hey y’all!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  The Hubs was out of town last week and got back home on Saturday, so I am thrilled to be back to life as normal.  This week is all about getting ready for the boy’s birthday party this weekend!  They will be one on Thursday which feels absolutely crazy.

With a busy week ahead eating on the go is even more important.  Have you guys ever had a breakfast cookie?  They look like cookies but are hidden with all sorts of nourishing superfoods like whole oats, pumpkin seeds, cranberry and chia seeds.  My version even has pumpkin in it!  In fact, this Pumpkin Superfood Cookies recipe is the perfect way to start your day.

Why you’ll love this Pumpkin Superfood Cookies recipe…

Breakfast cookies???

YES!  These delightful creations could totally pass for a quick, healthy meal.  You will love them because they are easy to make, filling and packed with energy-boosting goodness.

The boys are still too young to eat these BUT these would be a great snack to give to older kids on the go.  It also goes great with a bowl of creamy yogurt if you have time to sit down.

Now, these cookies aren’t super sweet… in fact, they only have a 1/4 cup of honey in the entire recipe.  They are naturally slightly sweet but don’t give you that too much sugar in the morning feeling.  They aren’t traditional cookies at all and you can feel good eating them.

I love the way the oats, seeds, and cranberries come together for a delightful texture.

How to make my Pumpkin Superfood Cookies recipe…

Making these cookies is super simple!  My only trick is to have a 1/4 measuring cup to get the right amount of the mixture to form the cookie.

  1. Mix the ingredients.
  2. Form the oatmeal mixture into cookies.  They remain the same shape during baking so make them look like cookies. 🙂
  3. Bake!
  4. Cool and serve.

    YUM! I am so guilty of buying pre-made bites and cookies like this at the store, but they are never as good as homemade! I can’t wait to pick up the ingredients and make these!
