Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies — Only 3 Ingredients and Low Fat

Fall is just about here! 🍁🍂 I love going on a hike up in the mountains close to home and walking through all the fall colored leaves! It is beautiful! When the leaves are changing colors that means it is time for pumpkin flavored everything!! 🙌🏻🧡🧡 My kids and I love pumpkin flavored foods.  What about you?img_3631

My oldest boy, Walker, has been sick this week and has been staying home from school. This throws off any errands or outing with the younger kids and we stick around home during the day. While Walker is resting, my 5 year old, Porter, is begging to make some cookies. With the seasons starting to change, I knew exactly what cookies we would make. These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect to make with my kids and it’s only 3 ingredients!! Can’t beat that! If you are like my husband, he likes these without the chocolate chips. Then you are down to 2 ingredients.

Using a full can of puréed pumpkin, these cookies are loaded with vitamin C, potassium, fiber and the powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene. Pumpkins are great for overall heart health! These pumpkin chocolate chips cookies are a yummy way to consume some nutrient dense pumpkins! Plus, as a bonus these cookies are low in fat. There is no added oil or butter. (In other cookie recipes butter can be substituted with pumpkin to decrease the fat content)
