We get it: Sometimes you just need a cookie! But you don't have to feel guilty about this cookie - a healthy spin with a pumpkin spice kick. Our Pumpkin Spice Breakfast cookies are a great, whole grain and gluten-free option. And just because they're hearty enough to eat for breakfast, doesn't mean they're lacking in flavor goodness. Try adding some chocolate or coconut chips to the recipe for extra sweetness. Enjoy!
