These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are a healthy, kid-friendly fall dessert recipe. They’re perfect for parties and bake sales, but save a few for yourself!
If I could have just one healthy treat during fall, it would be these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. From September to November every year, my oven yields batch after batch of these autumn goodies. I’ve made these cookies for bake sales and moms with new babies, friends going through hard times and classroom parties. But I always have an ulterior motive – I keep part of each batch for my family.
When I started making these cookies several years ago, I used 1½ cups of white sugar. I now use ¾ cup of maple syrup, and they’re perfectly sweet. So many recipes call for way too much sweetener, so it’s a good idea to keep cutting down on the amount of sweetener in a recipe until you get your dessert to be just sweet enough. These are much healthier than traditional chocolate chip cookies, and the cinnamon pumpkin flavor makes them the perfect fall dessert.
