It's October and the blog world is buzzing with pumpkin recipes so I'm jumping on the pumpkin bandwagon. (I thought you deserved some warning about all the pumpkin recipes about to appear on my blog this month.)
I found this recipe for Low-Fat Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies on Skinnytaste.com recently. This recipe had three of my favorite words - pumpkin, chocolate and low-fat. I'm sold.
Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg white
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, pumpkin puree and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Craving pumpkin and chocolate? Make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy.
The plan was to make a batch of these cookies to keep them in my freezer for emergency chocolate attacks. (I'm embarrassed to say that not very many made it into the freezer because I ate so many.)
I love these cookies. Make them for your family - they won't notice that they're low-fat.
