When it comes to sitting down and unwinding over a meal it seems to me breakfast would probably be last on the list; especially during the week, and these pumpkin cranberry breakfast cookies are perfect for when you’re on the go.

Between kids getting ready for school, making your morning coffee, and taking out the dogs, it’s definitely the most hectic. Breakfast cookies are easy and filling, to say the least. If you are needing something to grab and go because the alarm didn’t go off in time these are a great staple to have. They are as simple as blend, assemble, and no-bake which makes for an easier morning.

These no-bake pumpkin cranberry breakfast cookies are not super sweet but have a great balance with the tart cranberries and salty pumpkin seeds. They are perfect for dipping in your dairy-free yogurt or for a bite-sized snack to pair with your morning joe.
