One of my favorite things to do is put a healthier spin on a classic recipe favorite, and when Fall rolls around it's even more fun with all those holiday recipes. One of my new cookie favorites are these Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! Pumpkin is not only a tasty Fall favorite, but also a great way to a bit of nutritional punch while making your baked goods nice and moist. Light on calories these cookies definitely do not skimp on delightful fall flavor! This recipe yields approximately 24 small cookies and takes just under 30 minutes to create - perfect to whip up for your next holiday gathering or anytime the craving hits!
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter (softened)
1/4 C light brown sugar
1/4 C honey
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C pumpkin puree
1 C oats
1 C whole wheat flour (or sub with gluten free)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 C mini chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries or chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size bowl blend together the butter, honey and brown sugar with a hand mixer.
Add vanilla and pumpkin, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg and beat on low until well combined.
Stir in the four until well blended, then stir in oats. Add chocolate chips last and stir well.
Drop by spoonful onto a nonstick baking sheet (or line a traditional sheet with parchment paper), form into balls and flatten as needed.
Bake for approximately 12-15minutes (or until lightly browned at the edges).
Cool on a wire rack for 10minutes.
Eat and Enjoy!
