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.

Happy Indulging!

    Are they called Easy because there’s no chocolate dipping involved? The picture belies the name. I thought about what else chocolate – dipped could mean…. but no. 🙁

      If you read the instructions below, Elisabeth provided directions for the chocolate dipped part. I was thrown at first until I read the recipe all the way through.
      Though you are correct that the picture does not show chocolate, but I have a good enough imaginations to translate the picture into Chocolate Dipped goodness. Maybe because I have chocolate on the brain right now.

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I added chia seeds and used stevia this time. So happy I got a batch of these done before the storm 🙂

  3. YUM! I made pumpkin muffins yesterday, so now i know what to do with the extra pumpkin!
