Fall Chewy Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

The Perfect Healthy Treat

Fall is officially here, and you know what that means— pumpkins and pumpkin spice are everywhere. It is amazing how quickly you shift from summer fruits to fall desserts. Within days, my house was infused by the smell of pumpkin vanilla candles, my kitchen smelled of pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin spice lattes are my new favorite treat. I couldn’t help but get right to baking some of my favorite fall pumpkin cookies. Each cookie is less than 100 calories and is the perfect healthy treat. Whether you want to enjoy them for breakfast or as an afternoon snack with your kids, these are so chewy and delicious. Here is my first recipe of the season, and I am excited to share many more of my fall pumpkin favorites. I hope you like these Chewy Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies as much as my family and I do. Enjoy!
