Pumpkin Cherry Chia Breakfast Cookies

I love having preparing a bath of these cookies in the beginning of the week and having them ready to go. They combine some of my favorite flavors, pumpkin and cherry, and have an awesome nutrition boost with the added chia. Make these Sunday Morning and place them in the refrigerator, then pop them in the toaster during the week for a quick and healthy breakfast. They are very simple to make, high in fiber and protein, and can be made out of a combination of ingredients. Save them in the freezer for up to a month! You can spread them out big or small, either way it’s a great start to your morning.
