Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bites of Heaven

twopeasandtheirpod.com

Okay, you may be suspicious about a cookie under the “Health” section. How could it be any good and especially when posted by a Personal Trainer with certs in nutrition counseling? Well, here’s a dirty little secret: I LOVE sweets, they are my weakness so I can definitely vouch for their gastronomic goodness. Even though these cookies are (eek) VEGAN, they do NOT taste like cardboard and you should not judge before you taste. These little gems have become a household favorite this fall even for my omnivore husband who always balks at the whisper of “healthy”, vegan, organic. So bake these babies up and don’t disclose the ingredients until after everyone has fallen in love.
