Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookie Recipes

pumpkin-chocolate-chip-breakfast-cookie-recipes (2 of 1)  Who says it can’t be healthy to have cookies for breakfast?  Ok, so certain cookies I would not recommend but these cookies are full of great for you ingredients and taste delicious too!  On days the kids wake up and find out we are having breakfast cookies, it puts everyone in a good mood right away.  They carefully pier through the glass door to see how much longer “they think” they need to cook.  Many times they will tell me, “Mom, they look ready!” When they have only been in a minute or two.  I can’t help but smile from their impatience.

Back to the breakfast cookie recipes…

This time of year has me wanting to add pumpkin into anything I bake, and good thing the kids don’t mind.  These breakfast cookies combine pumpkin and bananas to make moist and scrumptious treats that can be (WE DID!) enjoyed any time of day, morning or afternoon.

The great thing is, if you have a little leftover pumpkin puree you are not sure what to do with, put it to good use and bake these delicious treats!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookie Recipes

  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of dried fruit or nut combination (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mash the bananas then add all the wet ingredients and stir.
  3. Add all the dry ingredients with the exception of the chocolate chips and mix well.
  4. Add chocolate chips, any dried fruit or nuts you wish and stir until well combined.
  5. Using a tablespoon, drop the cookie dough on a baking sheet and gently press down slightly to flatten. They will not spread like a regular cookie, so if you drop them into mounds, that is how they will bake.

These lasted two days in our house, but that was because it was raining on the day I made them and told the kids I HAD to have a few for photos the next day, otherwise, they would have been all gone!  Healthy doesn’t have to just be healthy, they can also be totally delicious!
