There are two things I need to tell you about this recipe right off the bat:

  • What are they? These pumpkin-oat clusters are somewhere between a cookie and a scone, but they’re not really either. I could only come up with cluster to describe them.
  • 3-Ingredient recipe: The base of these clusters is made up of only 3 ingredients. You can customize them by adding all sorts of additional ingredients like:
    • Chocolate chips
    • Pecans
    • Cinnamon
    • Dried cranberries
