Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know about you but when I think of pumpkin I think of fall. Cool weather, cozy sweaters, comfort foods and pretty fall leaves all comes to mind, but I live in Florida so right now its really none of the above. It’s more like wet mornings, hot afternoons,  flip-flops and palm trees fronds falling at any moment. We still have a few more weeks till we are out of the clear for hurricane season.  So until  then I’m pretending its fall and baking up a storm (no pun intended lol). First up is my Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast cookies. These breakfast cookies are hearty, healthy and nutritious. You can substitute just about all of the mix-ins to your liking and they will still come out great. Substitute the eggs and honey and this recipe is vegan friendly!

Instructions
