Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

What is it about Halloween that makes you want candy, when any other time of the year you can stay away from eating it? It is not just the fact that it is in the house, in anticipation of the trick or treaters. I usually have enough willpower that I can ignore what I can't have or just allow myself one little piece. There must be a childhood memory of unlimited Halloween candy that surfaces this time of year. So, as a Diabetic, trying to follow a healthy diet, my solution is to have something sweet available that helps me resist all that temptation.

These Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies from Skinnytaste are great because they have healthy, low fat oatmeal. I also made them sugar free my using Splenda sugar and brown sugar. They are very moist and have a lot of pumpkin flavor, even though there is only a small amount of pumpkin added. The recipe can be found here.

The winds started whipping yesterday, as the outer edges of the storm on the east coast made their way even this far away. It was the perfect day to keep warm inside; baking and watching the leaves swirl around.

Hope the week ahead keeps you safe from any storms!
