Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

In order to control consumption, I just bake a few at a time. These are exceptionally good, and more healthy than traditional oatmeal cookies. By adding pumpkin and increasing the oats, I was able to reduce the butter and sugar in the original recipe.
