"Soft cookie" - that is heaven to my ear. And it's pumpkin to boot!

Huh? You do your workout WHILE baking? I am trying to picture you in a little gym outfit, hopping and lunging around the kitchen while mixing up some batter. This cannot be right...


Wonderful and guiltless !! Thank you !

Madam Chow

Love pumpkin. Love chocolate. And you just sold me the Jillian Michaels video - I've been weightlifting for over 30 years, and nothing makes me sore any more!


Ha! That video sounds great! I want to try it!! And I am making those cookies immediately! Like this weekend!


I always make pumpkin cchip bread- now I have to try your cookies! And I totally do push ups in my kichen waiting for things to bake/cook!


One of my favorite cookies and my husbands, too! I gotta go stock up on pumpkin! Now there's an idea, workout, bake, workout, bake.


Superb photos; I'd love to try this recipe, and I actually have everything on hand! I'd probably lower the sugar content a bit, and maybe even replace some of the oil with applesauce (just because I've found that I love the slight apple flavor alongside the pumpkin). Thank you for the recipe; perfect timing!


This cookie has my name all over it. It really does!! Pass me a few of those would ya?


Workout? Serious? Nope, not me which is why I'm no longer a size 0 or 2! Oh, well.


I think I bookmarked these when Joy the Baker posted them last year but I have yet to actually make them--thanks for the reminder! I am still doing the 30 day shred for my Jillian fix (I am particularly fond of: "Do you feel like you're going to die? GOOD!") but it sounds like I may have to look into No More Trouble Zones too...


yeah, although pumpkin's flavor doesn't thrill me, i think the texture of these alone makes them worthy of eating. and hey, there's chocolate!


It IS time to get those cans of pumpkin off the shelf, isn't it! And what a great way to use them.... these look fantastic! Even though they are somewhat healthy - you'd never know it by the great photos! Pumpkin and chocolate are one of those super combos! Can't wait to give this one a try!

These cookies are brilliant! I love pumpkin, and I am thrilled that you made healthy cookies! I will have to give them a try. That's awesome that you work out with Jillian while baking... Jillian always kicks my butt!


Yum! I am all about pumpkin right now and these look fabulous!


I found these looking for pumpkin recipes on Tastespotting and I can't wait to make 'em.

Phyllis (me HUNGRY!)

Teanna, you are my hero. I just did Jillian Michael's 30 day shred yesterday, only 20 minutes long (Level 1) and I was dying. I can barely move my arms right now. But I'm reaching through the pain to turn on my printer so I can printout this yummy recipe. Chocolate and pumpkin are my hubby's favorites so I can't wait to make this for him - thanks!! :)


oh gosh, I think I just died and went to cookie heaven. Seriously best cookies ever!

I'm like you I work out 4-5 times a week which is why I like to cook and bake healthy because I need to stay in shape. These cookies won't ruin our diet but also satisfy our sweet tooth!


Girl, you didn't even need to mention the "healthy" part. Just say "pumpkin" and you've got me on my hind legs begging for a bite!


They look so good and soft is really good! I will make them asap.thanks!


Seriously, I have been thinking about making almost this exact type of cookie. I am a soft cookie gal, so excited to try these out!!! Thanks :)
