Oatmeal Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

It’s that time of year where you see pumpkin everything! I have to say i’m a huge fan of fall and all the recipes, candles, cooking and holidays that come along with it. I was playing around in the kitchen and thinking of a simple, easy yet delicious breakfast idea for people on the go.

These healthy Oatmeal Pumpkin cookies make a nutritious grab-and-go breakfast or the perfect post dinner treat. They are gluten-free and made with oats, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and sweetened with honey.

These breakfast cookies are loaded with so many nutritional benefits from the oats, flaxseed and have a natural sweetness from the honey and cranberries. You can shape and size these cookies anyway you want because they will not change size when baking!
