Since I’m currently without a kitchen (but not for long – see here) I decided to update and share one of the most popular posts from my recipe archive because they’re just so perfectly in-season. These pumpkin cookies are super good for you and taste amazing, too.
And good news! You can dive into this Fall treat guilt-free.
Studies have shown that people who eat dark chocolate tend to weigh less than non-chocolate eaters, and dark chocolate contains loads of antioxidants to keep your body healthy. Just make sure you stick to dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa) to keep the glycemic index low and excess sugar out of your body.

Make ’em dark chocolate-dipped: Melt one 12 ounce organic dark chocolate bar (at least 70% cocoa) in a double boiler on the stove. Stir constantly until completely melted. Once your cookies have cooled and set, dip half into the melted chocolate. Set on a parchment lined baking sheet until the chocolate is firm. Yum!
Store in the refrigerator, if there are any left that is.
