Fall Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies for Baking

I'm in a serious Pumpkin mode over here. I just love this time of year and I love pumpkin so I'm in heaven with all the pumpkin-ness swirling around me. I am also in angst since I can't have so many of the delicious pumpkin baked goods out there. I'm looking at your Pumpkin Old Fashioned Glazed Donut from Top Pot. *sigh* Next year, next year I'll have my pumpkin baked goods.

I decided to make Molly some breakfast cookies. They are great as a breakfast item or as a quick snack. They are especially awesome if you are like Molly and are not quite ready to eat first thing in the morning but know that you need to eat something before your day of crazy, running around starts. I've also found that I've been able to enjoy one of these with some protein without my blood sugar numbers spiking.
