Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some days you just want cookies for breakfast. But how can you justify that to yourself? Well let’s see… Pumpkin? It’s a vegetable and there’s lots of vitamin A for your eyes (plus, it’s fall so it’s pretty much obligatory). Oats? They’re a whole grain high in fiber. Chocolate chips? Er… Okay so that last one is questionable, but all in all here’s a relatively healthy cookie recipe that you can get away with making for breakfast. 😛

Ingredient

  • 1 + 1/2 cup rolled oats, divided
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend 1 cup rolled oats into oat flour. In a medium bowl, combine oat flour with 1/2 cup whole rolled oats, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, coconut oil, and egg.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Scoop 1.5 tbsp portions of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Press the mounds of dough down slightly as the cookies will not spread during baking.
