Have you ever made something that you just could’t bear to eat because it was cute?
For me, it was these cookies. LOOK AT THE CUTENESS!
A gorgeous orange-brown colour, so perfect for fall. So delicious for fall. So cute, so cute, so cute!
These pumpkin cookies are studded with mini chocolate chips, and made with gluten-free flour and oats, making them a delicious, gluten-free fall treat.
And they’re cute!
I got over the “can’t eat them ’cause they’re cute” problem quite fast, because although they are cute, surely they are delicious, especially with that yummy pumpkin scent swirling around in the air.
Verdict? Yes. Yes they are delicious. Now I must eat another. And another more. And another… um, okay, don’t pay any attention to me over here.
If you’re a pumpkin lovah like me, you will love these delicious (and cute!) little cookies. I won’t judge you if you eat 5 in one sitting like I did. Okay fine, it was 6. Cough.
