Ever since I discovered how good my pumpkin oatmeal protein balls are when I microwave them for 15 seconds to “bake” them, I’ve been craving pumpkin baked goods. When Tina mentioned a three-ingredient pumpkin spice cookie recipe on her Best Body Fitness blog, I knew I had to try it.
Tina’s pumpkin spice cookie recipe calls for white chocolate chips, but I thought I would try it with butterscotch chips and peanut butter chips to see how those worked out. After I made the basic batter, I divided it in two and added a heaping 1/2 cup of chips to each divided portion. (The recipe is in the Recipage section below.)
I like the ones with peanut butter chips better, but my husband likes the one with butterscotch chips. My son didn’t really like either because he doesn’t like soft cookies, and these are more cake-like than crunchy. I gave some of the peanut butter chip ones to my Mom so I wouldn’t eat them all, and she thought they were delicious. 😉

It’s so good!
