Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

I have been wanting a quick but healthy breakfast on the go and thought why not oatmeal cookies.  I mean really, what is so different about eating a bowl of oatmeal vs. a big oatmeal cookie?  So I was looking at a new blog today, American Homemaker and she had a good recipe for a Breakfast Cookie Bar and I thought I would try it and make a bit of a variation to liven things up a bit for the Autumn Season.  Here is here recipe below and my variation is below hers.

Breakfast Cookie Bars


1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 c. oats
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. pearsauce or applesauce
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips

Mix everything together well. Pour into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies


1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 c. oats
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. pureed pumpkin (homemade or canned)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 c. cinnamon chips or butterscotch chips (both are DELICIOUS!)

Mix everything together well.  Drop by the spoonful on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes (less or more depending on your oven).

Disclaimer:  I have not made these cookies yet but I'm going to!
