It’s that time of year again! Time for pumpkin all-the-things. And I’m here to help you get your fall pumpkin game on with this Healthy Pumpkin Date Cookies Recipe.

I make no secret about my sweet tooth. I can pass up salty treats NBD, but I like a little something sweet once a day. When it’s fall, make that a little pumpkin something sweet. I love having one of these date cookies with a cup of tea as an afternoon snack and a late-day pick-me-up.

These pumpkin date cookies have the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor, and they’re just sweet enough. The sweetness comes from pure maple syrup, and a few medjool dates. Both of these are natural forms of sugar and both have health benefits.

Maple syrup is high in antioxidants and important minerals. Dates also contain antioxidants and are high in fiber and important minerals.

When possible, try to choose foods that you love, and that will work FOR your body with nutritional benefits. Just like this pumpkin date cookies recipe.

Speaking of foods that work for your body, basically every other ingredient in this date cookies recipe is a food that does just that. These cookies are loaded with fiber and plant based nutrition.

I’ll make the prediction that this pumpkin date cookies recipe has a 100% percent chance of becoming your new favorite fall treat!
