Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Oat Cookies

Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Oat Cookies

After experimenting with 5 different pumpkin cookie batches, I found the right combination.  My toughest critics finally devoured these tasty treats.  The difficulty was getting just the right amount of pumpkin flavor and sweetness in one bite.  These cookies have the perfect blend of moist and chewy.  They make an easy grab-n-go breakfast or snack.  The flax meal and chia seeds add heart healthy omega-3’s, protein, and antioxidants.  When they are combined with oats, they add an abundance of fiber that makes them not only delicious, but also filling.
