Aka, when dessert for breakfast becomes 100% acceptable. What’s not to love?
((Coming soon to a kitchen near you))
These cookies are even easier, even healthier, and even more special diet-friendly (100% raw and gluten-free!). Talk about an upgrade.
Five ingredients and no added sugar make these cookies super minimalist and extremely healthy. The pumpkin butter adds a punch of fall flavor and is a lot lighter than many nut butters. Pecans add those healthy nut fats and an autumn crunch. Instead of sugar, dates naturally sweeten these bites. Gluten-free rolled oats add texture and a shake of cinnamon spices things up!
If you’re not a coffee drinker or pumpkin spice lattes just aren’t your thing, get your morning dose of pumpkin with these quick and nutritious breakfast cookies. Combining two awesome fall pie flavors, these cookies are an awesome way to curb an early sweet craving and start your day off right.
Happy eating! xx
