Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast cookies

Let me get the record straight. These are not Paleo cookies however, they could be depending on what you decide to put in them. When I made this batch of cookies, I found the batter to be really runny, so I put in a LOT of oatmeal, and they turned out to be really delicious. The batch makes up quite a bit, so if everyone in your family is going to eat them, I would make the entire amount. If it’s just you, make 1/2 or freeze the cookies, as you will have more than you can eat by the end of the week.

Breakfast Cookies Recipe (Adapted from The Preppy Paleo)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 cups mix-ins of choice**

**Coconut, dark chocolate chips, oatmeal, pepitas, walnuts, etc. (I used coconut, chocolate chips, dark dried cherries and oatmeal.)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine all of your ingredients. Drop in tablespoon sizes of batter onto baking sheet.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Let cool a few minutes and then place cookies on cooking rack.
