How to make Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Bananas: You’ll need 2 medium bananas, mashed.
- Canned pumpkin puree
- Honey, maple syrup, or agave
- Vanilla extract
- Quick porridge oats: You may also use rolled oats.
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
- Ground nutmeg
- Chocolate chips: Dark or semi-sweet.
To make these healthy pumpkin cookies, simply start by grabbing a large mixing bowl and whisking together the mashed bananas, pumpkin, honey, and vanilla until combined.
Add the oats and spices, and mix until completely combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop, drop balls of the mixture onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Flatten the balls out and shape into neat circles. The mixture will be quite sticky, so you may want to dampen your hands slightly to do this step.
Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until firm to the touch and lightly golden on top. Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
