During COVID, sugar was nowhere to be found. I made this WITHOUT sugar and instead replaced it with dried fruit. Golden raisins and apricots worked well. I've made it multiple times and it seems 1/2 to 1-1/2 cups dried fruit gives different levels of sweetness. I've also replaced oil with applesauce successfully. Freezes excellent
Hello from the Food Hero team!
Thanks for sharing your creative ingredient change. We love hearing how flexible Food Hero recipes can be, especially when ingredients are unavailable. Thanks also for letting everyone know you've found the Breakfast Pumpkin Cookies to freeze well.
Would it work if I use gluten free flour?
We reached out to our educators around the state and at least 3 of them have tried this recipe successfully with gluten-free flour, including successfully serving them to kids! They each added a tip to share with you as well -
Hope this helps and happy baking!
I have made this cookie for public events and at home and they are always well received. I do replace the raisins with dried cranberries and use all whole wheat pastry flour.
Using whole wheat pastry flour is a great tip!
Really interesting recipe! Next time I will for sure try it with oats to replace some flour like the user Gooseberry suggested. As is my daughter loved these cookies and they taste even better the next day! They do have a bit of that chewy texture a low-fat cookie usually gets but they are still super yummy and i am sure the oat sub will help with that.
I use this recipe monthly. I add Whole oats (1 Cup) with decreasing 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour. It helps to make the cookies and/or muffins lighter and not as heavy if you where to leave out the whole oats. Makes great Muffins!
These make the morning go a little easier! I bake them the night before for a quick, portable breakfast!
