Pumpkin season isn’t over yet!! If you are looking for a healthy treat these are quite tasty. Not only are they made with healthy ingredients but they can satisfy a craving for sweets. Cookies don’t have to be loaded with butter and sugar to taste good, and this recipe only has 1 tablespoon of butter in the whole recipe!
SKINNY PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
- 1 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (if you like the spice add a little more)
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 large egg whites
- 3 tbsp canned pumpkin (mine were heaping tablespoons!)
Chocolate chips ¼ cup (optional) I made some with chocolate chips and some without.
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients except for the sugars. Mix well. In a separate bowl mix the butter and sugars until combined. Add in egg whites, pumpkin, and vanilla extract. Add in the dry ingredients and stir well. (Optional add in chocolate chips)
