Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie

What better way to get kids to try something unfamiliar, like quinoa and pumpkin, than to sneak them into these Mambolicious cookies! Though we might not serve anything with chocolate for breakfast, we would definitely recommend serving these for a healthy, scrumptious dessert. Voters and judges alike couldn’t get enough of this.

    I don’t know–with 4 sticks of butter and 1 cup of sugar that is not something that I would feed to my child for breakfast. That is a BIG treat, a dessert that I would serve once in a blue moon. Too much fat and sugar though I am sure it tastes decadent.
