Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies – 93 calories

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies – 93 calories

I have often called myself “the human equivalent to the Cookie Monster.” I’m obsessed with cookies, so when I embarked in my remarkable weight loss journey I knew I had to find a way to still enjoy my love for cookies without ruining all the progress I was making.I found a few recipes, all good but nothing great. I took my old, naughty recipes and combined the two. Taking the skinny cookie tricks I had learned I created these amazing, rich, Pumpkin Pie flavored cookies.

Makes 30 cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup white flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter- room temperature
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups steel cut oats- or old fashioned

Frosting-

  • 2 cups powdered or confection sugar
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • splash of vanilla
