Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocoholics Beware!


You can never have too many chocolate chip cookies recipes, right?


Healthy and flavourful, these cookies are a tasty treat anytime!

Especially When they are tasty + seasonal, fused with pumpkin
and pumpkin spices!





I have a sweet tooth and appreciate ALL the cookies, but sometimes I need a cookie that is a little more wholesome, one that is good for both a snack or dessert (thanks to the dark chocolate chunks).




Peacked with healthy ingredients, these treats will satisfy your sweet tooth, and your wasitline!

 




These pumpkin cookies are low in sugar, refined sugar-free, are high in fibre and filled with lots of flavour from the warming pumpkin spices. They are very soft and chewy, not cakey, but do take on some
characteristics of a muffin.
