{Skinny} Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, made with coconut oil instead of butter. These babies are super moist and fall-elicious! 

Ok, so apparently my sweet little boy has gone on vacation this week. I am hoping he returns next week.

I don’t know how many more … “Nooooooo’s” or feet stomping temper tandrums I can handle.

I know my sweet little boy is in there somewhere because I get glimpses of it every once in a while.

But he is definitely starting too… “exercise his will” and it is .. “exercising mommy’s patience.”

Whooo… Breathe…..

My husband just started to read this “Dare to Discipline” book,  and it looks like I need to join him. I need all the wisdom I can get.

I want Cason to understand that mommy is in charge but not feel like he can’t challenge me every once in a while. Ya know… I don’t want to break his will, I just want him to know that I have the final say.

Ugh… parenting is hard stuff!

But such a gift… I mean look at that cute face. How can you resist that!

These photos were taken during a photo shoot I was doing for a Tuscan Tomato Soup I had just made (recipe coming soon..)

My camera took a little detour to this cutie.. can you blame me!

Even though parenting can be hard… baking AND eating cookies is easy peasy!

I wasn’t much of a baker when we first got married, but since I’ve had Cason and this blog {both my children… hehe} I have started to bake more.

So.. today I am sharing these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I mean why not right… since its fall lets just keep on going with the pumpkin recipes! 🙂

The best part about this cookie recipe is it has no butter, no egg, and less sugar than the normal cookie.

But guess what?

It still tastes amazing! It is moist, sweet, and has an amazing pumpkin hint to it!

Which puts me in my happy place…

    some of your recipes sound wonderful but still use a lot of fattening ingredients. I would loke to see calorie counts etc included since you state this is a healthy eats bolg. thanks, Fran

  2. What yummy little treats! I love that they are made with coconut oil as an alternative to butter!

    “Dare to Discipline” ah yes, a James Dobner book right?? Yes, I remember reading that myself when my boys were younger. It is definitely a great read and very helpful. Hang in there Krista!! 😉

        Sounds delish! In case this is helpful: Loving Our Kids on Purpose – Making a Heart to Heart Connection by (Pastor) Danny Silk really helped me with a challenging child….quick and easy to begin implementing and I saw positive results right away. 🙂 We were all much happier and enjoyed each other more. I wish I had been parented this way.

  3. These pumpkin cookies look fantastic Krista! Love that you they’re jam packed with pumpkin and you made them skinny with coconut oil and whole wheat flour. Aaw Cason is so so adorable, love his silly faces 🙂 Making scrumptious cookies are a great idea to help with the tantrums, I need to try that next time hehe 🙂

    1. haha… oh.. the good old waistline. Never friendly when you are a food blogger. But I’ve seen you AND your waistline and pretty sure you are the cutest thing ever! 🙂 Thanks for the pin girl!

      I made these tonight and they are so good! I am used to healthier recipes having that “healthy” tast, but these are just delicious. Have you tried freezing them? Or how do you typically store them so they don’t get yucky?

      1. I know right! So delicious and super moist.

        I haven’t tried freezing them yet but I’m sure they would be fine, just like regular cookie dough. I would pre-portion them though so its easier to pull out and just pop in the oven.

        I store them in an air tight container, I had them for about a week and a half and they were still just as moist when I had them on the first day. 🙂

          These are really yummy! My daughter and I live 1,000 miles apart so we did a cookie swap and I sent her some of these.
          Question: mine seem a little greesy. And crumbly. But still delicious!… Now just going for the “perfect cookie look”. Any suggestions?

          1. Hey Suzanne, the “greasy” is probably from the coconut oil. You could decrease that a bit and increase the pumpkin puree or even add yogurt or apple sauce for more of binding. Mine were a little crumbly when they were in dough form but as soon as I cooked them they hardened up. Hope that helps.

            PS love that you are sending cookies to your sweet daughter! So sweet… now.. I just need to get my mom to do that! 🙂 hehe

    1. haha….. you could add more pumpkin to give it more of the orangish color if thats what your looking for. It will just make them extra moist.. which is always a good thing. 🙂

    I made these today and I was a little worries bc I’ve never cooked with coconut oil but it was amazing! It tasted great! I didn’t have pumpkin spice but I added in some cinnamon and nutmeg instead and it was great. The cookies stuck together great and were moist. Thanks so much!

    Krista, these look absolutely FAB! Conveniently I always have some pumpkin sitting around at ALL times of the year. Do you happen to know the serving size and calories? Thanks! Oh p.s Cason has got to the cutest thing I have ever seen! He must have one heck of a personality… those fases are a piece of work. What a cutie pie!
