HEALTHY PUMPKIN OATMEAL COCONUT COOKIES

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!
