Healthy Pumpkin Trail Mix Cookies


That means pumpkin everything. Lather me up in pumpkin spice, coffee, apple cider donuts, flannels… the whole nine yards. I live for this shit.

Anyway, here is a delicious AND healthy cookie. You don’t see those two words together too frequently.

This cookie is only 100 calories and is incredibly filling. You could have these for breakfast if you wanted. They are also vegan, gluten free, and have no butter/oil. The only fat in these is coming from the chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds.

These cookies are also AMAZING for a hiking snack or if you’re just out looking for fall foliage. Or, I mean, you could just eat them watching Sunday football. I don’t care.

I’m super pumped for you to make these.

If you didn’t already know, I’m all about gut health and these are definitely gut approved! I haven’t tested them on kids, so let me know when you do!

This recipe was inspired by Beaming Baker and if you don’t like pumpkin, then you can try the original version linked here!
