Delicious, healthy and quick to make pumpkin spice cookies


Ah, does anyone else feel like they just turned around for a second, and the next thing you know, summer was gone, autumn wind is slapping colourful leaves in your face and all of the sudden it’s so cold outside that your cat is much less interested in escaping through the window? Yep, it’s a sad, sad thing. But since I strive to be a cup-half-full kind of person, I like to look at the positives in each situation, and, in this case, a major plus is this – pumpkin season is here! And who doesn’t love some pumpkin spice treats, am I right?!

I am not the best cook, but I do enjoy baking and experimenting with different recipes. It’s a very calming activity, plus the end result is usually quite delicious and rewarding. Furthermore, if you have a huge sweet tooth like me, baking your own goodies is a great way to avoid all the artificial sweeteners and preservatives in the store-bought sweets. With Halloween right around the corner, we better prepare ourselves and switch up to some healthier treats options.

4 Ways to avoid unhealthy snacking!

So, without further ado, let’s move on to the main point of this article – simple and relatively quick recipe for these incredibly delicious pumpkin cookies. If fact, after I first made them, we loved them so much that I recreated the recipe 3 days in a row (seriously, we might have gotten a little carried away). Give them a go, I assure you that you won’t regret it.
