Ingredients you'll need
- eggs: 2 large
- pumpkin puree: use pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin filling for this recipe
- maple syrup: adds a nice sweetness that complements the pumpkin; or you can use any sweetener you like
- coconut oil: or a neutral vegetable oil; if you don't like the coconut taste, use a refined coconut oil
- vanilla extract: optional, but highly recommended
- rolled oats: don't use steel-cut oats for this recipe
- all-purpose flour: a little flour helps to keep the shape of the cookies and improve the texture; if you want a gluten-free option, you can omit it
- baking powder: adds a little puffiness to the cookies so they're not too dense
- sea salt: balances out the flavour of the maple syrup
- pumpkin pie spice: is a combination of spices used commonly in pumpkin pie; if you don't have it you can use ground cinnamon instead
- dried fruit & seeds: I used dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flax seed and hemp seeds but you can omit or add whatever you like to these cookies
How to make it
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line a 9" by 13" baking tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
Add in the oats, flour, baking powder, sea salt, pumpkin pie spice and dried fruit and nuts (cranberries, pumpkin seeds, flax seed, chia seed, hemp seed).
With a spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined.
Use a ¼ cup scoop to portion out the mixture onto the parchment paper and pat down gently so the surface is even.
Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes, until cookies are slightly puffed.
Cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
How to serve
Serve the cookies at room temperature or slightly warmed.
How to store
Store the Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies in a container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the fridge for up to 1 week.
The cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months.
Feel free to play with the additions.
Try adding various dried fruit, nuts or seeds to the cookies.
Use cinnamon in place of pumpkin pie spice.
Or add almond butter in place of the oil.
