These delicious and chewy pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are wholesome and nutritious.
As we approach holiday festivities, I am sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes. These pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are nutritious, delicious, and wholesome! When I bring these little bits of goodness to parties, my friends and family rave about them. They are a feel-good after eating it kind of dessert. Those who are trying to eat “healthy” love these little morsels of wholesome ingredients. These cookies are not the “healthiest” cookie out there, however, the ingredients such as wheat flour, olive oil, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, oats, and pumpkin purée help me feel better about eating a dang delicious cookie.
