Ingredients you’ll need
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.
How to make Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies
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.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
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.

These are great! They're a nice alternative to granola bars, and I can take them to work easily. I added 1/4 cup of chopped salted peanuts - yum! Thanks for the recipe!

I love these cookies! I've been trying to find just the right recipe. I actually substituted 1 cup of the oats for almond flour and added an egg. I added dark chocolate chips and walnuts to the batter and they turned out great! I love that they don't have any oil/butter or sugar.

You mentioned that you could also use old fashioned oats. Will that make them too dry? Have you done this?

I have used old fashioned oats, and the cookies were just fine. Enjoy!
