3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies - WW 1 point





I love when I find a tasty treat that is healthy and yet low in Weight Watcher points! This delicious 3 ingredient pumpkin cookie has ONE point PER SERVING (3 cookies) without the chocolate topping (on purple program)πŸ’œπŸ’œ and is made with whole oats (I use gluten-free whole oats), pumpkin puree and or applesauce(more points), and pumpkin spice. 

If you are not concerned about weight, you will especially LOVE these healthy morsels by adding 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup to the batter !

These soft chewy cookies are a good allergy friendly cookie since they are not only gluten-free, they are also dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free (if  you don't add nut milk to melt the chocolate)

Mix and Bake and then Grab and Go
I simply mix the oats with applesauce or pumpkin puree and add pumpkin spice. (If you want them to be sweeter add a tablespoon of maple syrup)I then pop them into the oven for 15 minutes, and they are ready to enjoy!! I love them as a quick treat or even as a grab and go breakfast. After all. they are basically made from oatmeal.  One point baby for 3 cookies!!

These were made with applesauce not pumpkin puree 


You Can Vary The Spices
It's easy to vary the flavors too. Sometimes I use pumpkin pie spice, sometimes just cinnamon, and sometimes a little cardamom or even vanilla extract! 

Now, if you really want to ENJOY~ and take these little gems to a whole new level, top them with melted stevia sweetened chocolate chips. It only brings it to 1 point per delicious chocolate covered cookie. 


I had to order the stevia sweetened chips online, it was Lily's brand. You could use any kind of chocolate chip. I simple add 1/4 cup of nutmilk  (or any milk of your choice to make it nut-free) to a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and microwave for about 30 seconds. (check after 15 and stir) 

If you don't want to be bothered melting the chocolate, you could just add some chips to the batter....

My son Jonathan does not eat sugar or refined products. I'm always on the look-out for a dessert that I can make for him. The cookie, without the chocolate, will work for his food choices. For him, I will add chopped dates! Love it!!πŸ’—πŸ’—

Remember: They are not sweet, so you could add some stevia, date syrup, or maple syrup (1 tablespoon) to the batter (and add the points)


If you are looking for something that feels indulgent without the guilt, try these easy delicious cookies that the whole family will love! And you can feel good knowing that they are made of all healthy ingredients. (They travel really well)

MY NOTES: 
πŸ’œπŸ’œ Weight Watcher Purple PlanπŸ’œπŸ’œ
The basic cookie if made with whole oats, pumpkin puree, and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce is only points is 3 points total. I figure between one point per 3-4 cookies because the batter makes 24-28 cookies and the total is only 3 point for all the cookies. The cookies taste like a cross between a cookie an a muffin. They are soft!

Applesauce- 1/2 cup = 3 points   Unsweetened pumpkin puree = zero points
whole oats = zero points

  7. Did you use regular oatmeal or the quick oats Judee. I agree with Angie, they would be good, with some fruit on the side, for breakfast.

  12. I would not've guessed that those three simple ingredients would hold together enough to bake into a cookie! How interesting. And I always enjoy the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. (I'm also a huge fan of oats.)
