White Chocolate Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

After taking all 3 kids to the Dentist for their regular checkups and then rewarding myself with a Pumpkin Spice Americano, we spent most of the morning outside. It was a little chilly, but that never phases the kids. A friend asked me recently how we play outside so much with this crazy Pacific Northwest weather. All I could tell her is that the more you do it, the more your kids will grow to love it.

While they ran around the yard, I picked a few things from the garden. One of the things I love about gardening is how easy it is to use simple things like old corn stalks, tied with burlap for a simple front porch fall decoration. I also picked a few pumpkins and put a few of those on the porch as well. Zinnias were brought in for the table, the carrots went into soup for dinner and so did the tomatoes.

After we came in, I let the kids pick a movie and I made White Chocolate Pumpkin Breakfast cookies. This recipe is so simple and it's always a big hit in our house. If you try them and you like them, come back and let me know. I love sharing our favorite recipes here with you all.

To make the breakfast cookies, stir together oats, salt and pumpkin pie spice. 
Add in the white chocolate chips. 

In a separate bowl, combine the honey and the pumpkin. 
 Stir together and then use your hands to form into balls. Press the cookies down onto a greased cookie sheet.
 Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are starting to turn brown. Let the cookies sit for a few minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.

Grease a cookie sheet and lightly grease your hands with just a touch of oil. Roll dough into medium sized balls and flatten onto cookie sheet. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes.
