I live in a house with 8 girls, and on Sundays we all sit around the living room, attempt to study and eat everything and anything we can find. All day. One roommate is always making something delicious and it gets hard to say no. One of the biggest problems in trying to lose weight, or keeping weight off is depriving yourself. If you deprive yourself of your favorite food, you end up eventually snapping and binge eating. So while all my friends munch on relatively unhealthy foods, I decided to try and find quick, healthy options to things that wouldn’t make me feel like I was missing out.
For most college girls the fall means one thing. Pumpkin everything. Pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin vodka if we could. I found a recipe for pumpkin cookies that took 10 minutes to make! They were good and the best part was the recipe made about 6 cookies. Oh wait, there’s a better part… for the 6 cookies it was a total of 310 calories! Just two oreos are 140 calories… and who has only two oreos? These cookies are very filling too I couldn’t even eat all 6 in one sitting!
3 ingredient Pumpkin cookies
½ cup quaker oats
½ cup of pumpkin
2 tbsp Honey
I added cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice to give them a little bit of a kick, and I also added a few chocolate chips for the sweetness! Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and cook for 10 minutes or until desired softness!
