Pumpkin Cookies

It's Saturday, Thanksgiving is over, and the holiday season is in full swing!! And guess what?  So are those holiday treats!!  But trust me when I say, there ARE healthier versions of some of your favorites!  And they are delicious too!  I made these pumpkin cookies last week with my daughter and they were a hit!!  Both of my girls (5 and 6 years old) and my husband gobbled them down (along with myself!)! The recipe came from the Team Beachbody Blog and the only change I made was that I added some dark chocolate chips as per my daughter's request! 

Give them a try and let me know what you think!!
