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)
- 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.
