My Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


Sunday's My Favorite Family Day

Today was a wonderful day... I woke up to rain hitting the windows, it was a perfect day to sleep in and snuggle... It was heavenly to wake up to the sounds of our children talking and laughing as they made a hot breakfast together.

Generally on Sundays we go to church, but today we stayed home and watched General Conference on TV. I love learning from our church leaders, I always feel uplifted and inspired to improve my life to become the best I can be. I also love General Conference weekend (they're held each Oct & April) because we spend the weekend together as a family. We stay in our pj's all day playing games and baking delicious meals together, it's a bit of heaven on earth. =)

Today my youngest wanted to bake pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, (he loves to bake) so we made our favorite cookies, and I must say that they turned out yummy! I always use fresh whole wheat flour that I grind with a grinder, it makes for extra nutritious cookies and best of all my kids love them as much as I do.

Sundays are also one of my favorite days because I eat more freely. I don't eat as clean as I do throughout the week, it's so nice to enjoy sweets with my family and to know that my body is restoring its glycogen stores to ensure I have the needed energy for my workouts the following week.

I re-create all recipes to be more healthy & nutritious. I use natural ingredients that the body can process, half the fat and high fiber whenever possible. For those of you that love pumpkin as much as I do this time of year here is my Pumpkin (low- fat) Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. If you make them let me know how you like them.... I absolutely love them!!!
