Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Cookies

What you need:

1 1/4 cups oats (quick or rolled, GF if intolerant)
1/2 tbsp freshly ground flax seed
3 tsp pumpkin spice
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup pitted dates (chopped)
1 egg
3/4 cup pureed pumpkin
4 tbsps maple syrup or raw honey
1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
1 carrot (grated)

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Combine oats, flaxseed, pumpkin spice, sea salt, baking powder, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and chopped dates together in a bowl. Mix well to combine.

3. Whisk egg in a separate mixing bowl. Add pumpkin, maple syrup, coconut oil and grated carrot. Mix well to combine.

4. Add dry ingredients in with the wet and mix well until dough-like consistency forms.

5. Form cookies with the dough and transfer to the baking sheet. (Tip: Use a lid from a large-mouth mason jar as a mould.)

6. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes depending on how crispy you like your cookies. Remove from oven and let cool. Enjoy!

Add in a handful of dark organic chocolate chips.

Freeze well and great as mid-afternoon snacks

Make thicker patties (like in the photo), slice in half, toast and slather with nut butter for even more protein.
