I have come up with a pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recipe that I think you will love. My friend, whose son is a picky eater, gave me the idea. She said it’d be a great way to veggies down and I loved the idea. I was thinking of a pumpkin coffee cake or a pumpkin cheesecake but when she mentioned that, I knew I had to give it a whirl because my son LOVES cookies and I love the idea of a healthier, yummy snack as well.
I dig pumpkin because it adds extra fiber and Vitamin A to recipes. Pumpkin is also packed with Beta Carotene. Not only is adding pumpkin into recipes a great way to get your veggies in, it is also a great way to reduce your fat consumption as you can substitute 1 cup of pumpkin for one cup of oil or butter in most recipes. When used as a replacement for butter, eggs or oil, pumpkin can also reduce calories. Pumpkin is a pretty versatile vegetable as it can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes and served up for all three meals, snacks and desserts!
