Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some of you may be thinking, girl cool it, Fall is still a ways away. Then others of you are like me, thinking why should we wait until Fall to cook with pumpkin, isn’t that why canned pumpkin was created? I keep canned pumpkin on hand all year because I absolutely love pumpkin baked goods, especially pumpkin cookies. I’m cooking with pumpkin in the middle of spring. So is my friend Averie, over at Averie Cooks. Have you seen her Cream Cheese-Filled Pumpkin Bread she recently posted? It looks to die for!
