Fall is in the air, which of course makes us want to bake all sorts of pumpkin goodies. Here’s a healthy version of one of my all-time favorite pumpkin treats: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sweetened with honey, liquid stevia and mashed banana, these pumpkin cookies are free of refined sugar as well as gluten. Almond flour packs a nutritional punch and orange extract (or essential oil!) rounds out the flavor.
Happy fall, y’all!
