It is that time of year of again when pumpkin is a popular flavor. It was this time last year that I saw pumpkin whoopi pies and I thought to myself, “How can I make this healthier?” Hmmm . . . easy as adding some beans to a pumpkin spice cookie mix. This is a seasonal product so if you are not able to find it you can use a carrot cake or spice cake mix too and even add a can of pumpkin instead of beans.
A nice simple way to enjoy to the upcoming fall flavors – the healthy way!
