Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie

Putting a pumpkin twist on a favorite cookie! These savory cookies are great for breakfast or a healthy snack. Versatile where you can add your fave dried fruit and seeds. I went with dried cranberries, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.

The spices really bring out the flavors of Fall in these cookies. Of course pumpkin spice along with ground ginger and nutmeg to round out the spices.

Bonus is that your house will smell amazing while these are baking in the oven. I find myself eating these pre/post workouts too. They are a great energy source with the complex carbs from the oats (my go-to brand here) and pumpkin. If you can, heat them up a bit before eating for a warming touch. Otherwise, you enjoy them right from the fridge!
