Everyone has favorite memories of Halloweens past from their childhood. But once those little ghouls and goblins grow up to be adults we start to feel guilty about the sweets we consume (and handout). So at Wholesome Goodness, we spend a fair amount of time thinking about how to take some of the guilt out of beloved old snacks and treats without giving up the flavor.
Obviously, we think our granola bars and trail mix tubes make for a great Halloween treats, but we also wanted to make something a little homier for get togethers at home and school lunch treats.
We combed the internet for oatmeal cookie recipes that we could add a little goodness to, and after about an hour’s worth of research we had found the right combination of ingredients to proceed. From there, we cut the sugar in half, relying more on the natural sweetness of the pumpkin and oatmeal. So without further ado, here’s our recipe for pumpkin spiced oatmeal cookies!
Serve and enjoy!
