I’ve decided I’m not going to wait on fall to show itself, instead I’m going to do my best to manufacture it myself. I can’t seem to do much about the miserable temperature here in Phoenix, but I can fill my home with the wonderful scent of pumpkin and cinnamon. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, bring it on.
Today it’s pumpkin cookies. Lowfat Pumpkin Oatmeal Spice Cookies to be exact. These are hearty, chewy cookies that pack in some nutrition while still being “cookie” enough to count as dessert (at least to my kiddo!). She was pretty darn excited to see me put one in her lunchbox this morning.
They almost remind me of those oatmeal squares or bars that they sell in the breakfast isle, a bit of a cross between a muffin and a cookie. Mookie? Either way, these are a hit in our house. Not overly sweet, but sweet enough. They keep pretty nicely for a few days in a Ziploc bag or sealed container.
Ready to make some? They are pretty simple.
Not too many ingredients and no butter or oil. Good stuff.
