Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is a treat that you don't have to feel guilty about having around the house. These cookies have the perfect amount of sweetness and because of the pumpkin they are incredibly moist. My parents stopped by this week for a quick visit and my dad snagged one on his way out. I knew then they were blog worthy when he commented on how good they were. Little did he know that he was eating a cookie with whole wheat flour and applesauce. SurpriseDad!

These cookies will last 3-4 days in an air tight container at room temperature.
