These healthy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were a hit in our family. They are so guilt-free that you don’t feel bad when you eat another one (because you will). We think the real winner here is the pumpkin. Pumpkin and honey were made to go with each other.
If you wanted to make unhealthy cookies, you can just use a normal homemade cookie recipe and just add in the pumpkin. But if you are like Maggie, you healthify everything so you can eat more of it.
In the recipe, we use whole oats and grinded oats. This way some of the oats becomes like flour and makes the cookie more springy. We even added in some almond flour, giving these cookies a nutty taste without actual nuts getting in the way. the peanut butter is our fat ingredient and adds to the moistness of these breakfast bars. We use just the right amount so as to not over power the pumpkin taste.
