...based on a flourless recipe that combines pumpkin and TWO kinds of chocolate.
Did I have you at "two kinds of chocolate"?

Or "flourless"? (No white flour, that is.) Did I also mention there's no oil or butter in the recipe? And it doesn't call for an excessive amount of sugar, either. These are all winning points in my book!
As far as sweet treats go, I'd say these fall on the healthier end of the spectrum.

And they taste amazing. They have a warm, comforting spiced pumpkin flavor, and the chocolate makes them feel decadent. They're at a nice crossroads of chewy and cakey—altogether, so delicious that I'm pretty sure the husband and I both had one or two before I finished taking photos of them.
These cookies are made with oat flour, which you can purchase at pretty much any grocery store or easily make at home. It's simply whole grain oats that are ground in a food processor or blender until they reach the consistency of flour. (But be sure to take your measurement *after* you blend it, of course!)
                Voilà! Oat flour!
This recipe calls for semisweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chunks. I seriously recommend you keep both—it's worth it. I used a Colombian dark chocolate bar.
                                                  Ingredients
                                 1/2 c. canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
                                 2 Tbsp. honey
                                 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
                                 1 large egg
                                 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
                                 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
                                 1/8 tsp. cloves
                                 1/8 tsp. ginger
                                 1 tsp. baking soda
                                 1 c. oat flour (blended oats)
                                 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
                                 1/4 c. chocolate chunks (optional but highly recommended!)

                                                  Directions
1. In a medium bowl, mix together pumpkin, honey, egg, and brown sugar until well blended. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, sift together oat flour, baking soda, and spices. (Remember to measure your oat flour after the oats have been blended—not before.)

3. Combine wet and dry ingredients until just combined, being careful to not overstir.

4. Stir in chocolate chips and chunks.

5. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes to let it firm up. Preheat oven to 350.

6. Scoop dough onto cookie sheet either with a cookie scoop or a small spoon.

7. Bake for 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and leave on cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool.


These cookies are nice and chewy if you cook them for the minimal amount of time and allow them to finish cooking a little more on the pan after removing it from the oven.

Enjoy!

Education is simply that what keeps the minds of the people busy in such a way in which they don’t waste their time but invest their times to discover new things about life and world.

These is a very healthy snack. All these years I have always been on the look out for something to replace the usual over the counter anti viral medicine. It did not came as a surprise that orange and yellow vegetables and fruits can do the trick. This is something I want to be available within the reach of my children whenever they get hungry. It can help improve their welfare.

It looks so good. And I believe that it also tastes good. I really love cookies. It my stress reliever. Sweets are what my tongue is always after. If it is served in front of me, no other thoughts, I would eat it. There is always a lot of cookies inside my bag. I don't go outside without a pack of it inside my bag. I hope to have a taste of it soon. Thank you for sharing it with us.
