Pumpkin Chocolate Oat Cookies

How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Oat Cookies

After experimenting with 5 different pumpkin recipes, 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.  Pumpkin is packed with immune-boosting vitamin A and gut-healthy fiber.  The flax meal and chia seeds add heart and brain-healthy omega-3s, protein, and antioxidants.  When they’re combined with oats, they add an abundance of fiber that makes them deliciously filling.  Enjoy them for breakfast or as a snack.
