Healthier Than Candy Pumpkin Cookies Recipe @pinch

These yummy pumpkin cookies for Halloween are super moist and delicious. Most pumpkin cookies are very soft. Adding oatmeal to the batter gives the cookies a bit of texture. Topping with a bit of frosting and sprinkles makes them especially festive. Adults and kids will love these... a tasty fall treat. I made these cookies for a friend's children, as they aren't allowed to eat candy or anything too unhealthy. The kids loved them and my friend approved! You can use canned cream cheese or sugar-free frosting, or make a homemade cream cheese frosting with reduced-fat cream cheese.
