Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip CookiesThere’s nothing like coming home after church on a Sunday and doing some baking.  I love baking on Sundays, especially fall baking!  And especially baking a treat that is not only healthy but turns out absolutely delicious.  Well, this was the outcome of my most recent Sunday baking.  At first, I was just going to post this as an Instagram recipe, but I had so many people ask me for the recipe, I knew I had to make a blog post out of it! 

These fall-flavored homemade cookies go fast, so I would recommend making two batches!  Perfect for the holidays or to share with a friend or bring to a party.  And the best part is they are one of the healthiest desserts you can indulge in.  The cookies are made with clean, whole ingredients, are gluten-free +  the chocolate chips are high quality and vegan!  Plus, I snuck in a little chia seed action for you…extra protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega 3s;)
