It’s Sunday, and that means whipping up some sort of healthy snack to have throughout the week. I got the idea for this recipe from the following pin.
I added some gluten free rolled oats, a pinch of stevia, and a pinch of salt. In all honesty, I was really surprised at how great these turned out. I thought they would taste bland with no added sugar (that’s also why I added a tiny bit of stevia), but they honestly taste really good. My husband even liked them, and he doesn’t normally like pumpkin anything! It’s rare that you find a cookie that is actually good for you that tastes as good as this one does, so this one’s a keeper!
