Pumpkin is often associated with the Fall season, but let’s not leave this nutritious ingredient in November! Pumpkin has many health benefits, as well as tasting great 🙂 In this pumpkin flax cookies recipe, chocolate chips are added for extra sweetness and benefit. Pumpkin and chocolate are a dynamite combination, and the flax boosts the nutrition of the cookies as well!
“Pumpkin is so very good for you!
The bright orange color is a dead-giveaway that it’s full of wonderful disease-fighting carotenoids: alpha and beta carotene, which are very potent phyto-nutrients. Pumpkin also contains fiber, potassium, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Pumpkin is a world-class nutrition superstar!!!!!
I love healthy treats that are pumpkin and spice flavored. I’ve also been on a flax kick lately. Flax is also full of fiber. Plus, it’s rich in anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fats. So, I was inspired to mix flax and pumpkin and invent a cookie recipe. I’ve gotta say, they’re pretty delicious! The texture is very fluffy-muffin like, so you can make them as mini-muffins or cookies.”
