Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

There has been a slight chill in the air in the evenings, and it finally feels like fall is drawing near.  It’s my favorite season!  I’m not a pumpkin-spice-latte obsessive, but I do love all things pumpkin- and cinnamon-flavored in the fall.  And it doesn’t hurt that two of my favorite healthy-eating blogs posted pumpkin cookie recipes last week!

Normally I don’t make desserts for weeknight meals, but we’re hosting a college life group this fall, and I know the kids kind of expect it.  Plus, everything I’m serving is pretty healthy, so I figure a little treat won’t hurt.

Here’s the recipe.  My mods:  The recipecalls for 3/4 c. of sugar, which really isn’t that much, but I used 1/2 c. sugar and 1/4 c. molasses instead.  I used dark chocolate (60% cacao) chips. I used white whole-wheat flour, but I think these would probably turn out well with almond flour substituted for all or part of the wheat flour.

Also – yes, the cookies really ARE that orange (several of the college kids commented on it) and they didn’t flatten out at all when they baked.  So, I guess what I actually made were weird, orange, delicious little cookie balls.
