Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Attention 9toFit readers looking for a healthy, clean eating recipe for this weekend.. skip this post!

Sorry but it’s pumpkin season and I decided to make these delicious chewy cookies with all the sugars and fats included. I think it’s okay to indulge at times, that’s the reason we work out right?

Anyways, as soon as fall rolls around I am the first one to jump into the pumpkin craze. Yes I was drinking pumpkin beer back in August when it first came on tap at local bars, my coffee order every morning “large hot pumpkin, skim milk”, so of course when I decided to bake some cookies for Sunday football, pfff obviously they were pumpkin!

These chewy cookies even won over some of my non-pumpkin loving friends (yeah I don’t know what there deal is either?) But to their own amazement they fell in love with the pumpkin chocolate combo just the same.

Take that pumpkin haters!
