Wholegrain Pumpkin cookies

Sometimes we just want to make cookies and we never have the ingredients we want in the house. Other times our children can come home from school and remind you about the cookies they volunteered you to bring to the school--the next morning!

I do not know about you, but I always want to bring something fun and healthy--you know other people will be bringing the artificially flavored junk that kids (OK and parents) really enjoy and it is nice to not add to that and to show that healthy tastes fantastic when you know how to do it!

Jamie Wilson, the co-author to Squeaky Gourmet, has come up with a healthy yummy solution to the cookie conundrum!

Wholegrain Pumpkin cookies
makes 3 dozen

1 package Bob’s Red Mill Spice Apple cake mix

1 c pumpkin

1 egg

Approx ½- ¾ c water

1 c semisweet choc chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients well and drop on lightly sprayed cookie sheet in smallish drops. I used my regular sized spoons for this. Cook for approximately 15 minutes until browned lightly on the edges.

Other Good Ideas:

--use cranberries instead of chocolate chips

--add in some lemon zest and nuts

These are great to bake ahead and freeze--if you can resist eating them all!
