No Bake Pumpkin Cookies

Ok, so that’s not quite how the famous song goes, but it’s certainly appropriate for the beginning of fall. Already pumpkin spice fever has taken hold, especially for those of us who absolutely love the season.

While cooking dinner tonight, I decided to find an easy (and healthy) recipe that might satisfy that craving for autumn-y goodness. With a bit of searching, I ran across this one for No Bake Pumpkin Cookies. No bake and healthy? I’m there!

As I didn’t have coconut, I substituted rolled oats for that ingredient. I also used a combination of peanut butter and almond butter just to use up the last little bit of each in their jars. The only other change I made was to simply throw the mix in a dish and flatten it out to be cut later into squares. Much quicker and easier than forming separate cookies. And for those of us who are a bit lazy, shortcuts are everything.

The result? A lightly sweet cookie with plenty of flavor. I can’t wait to munch on these while drinking a big cup of coffee. Now, if only we had some pumpkin spice coffee…
