I don’t think there is anything more comforting than a warm and soft chocolate chip cookie. Baking with mom, cookies and milk after school, even Santa loves them!! How about some chocolate chip cookies that taste great and are good for you too? Yes please! I will take 12! That is how many you get for under 400 calories. I don’t think Santa’s waistline will complain if you leave him some of these next Christmas!
I don’t think anyone would complain if you gave them a batch of these cookies!
I got 12 cookies. You can make them bigger or smaller, but I think these ones are perfect sized.
Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes. They don’t take long at all! Be careful the first time you make them. If you bake them too long they may get a little dry.
Perfection! Now, these cookies do have a slight orange tint to them from the pumpkin…I promise you they don’t taste like pumpkin though! They also don’t taste like beans! What do they taste like?? Amazing chocolate chip cookies! Super soft. I love the texture from the beans and pumpkin. Probably my two favorite baking ingredients.
Now remember, these are healthy so eat as many as you like!
Seriously though…who eats only one cookie?! Not me! These made a great breakfast! Yup, cookies for breakfast. With 35 grams of protein, these guys will keep you full and satisfied all morning.
You can make everyone jealous by telling them you ate a batch of cookies for breakfast…Way more fun than a bowl of cereal or boring bagel!
