Be back in a few….gone to the store to get the ingredients! You two just crack me up….love you both and love your motivation and inspiration. Tank you from my dwindling waistline and the bottom of my heart

Hey Hannah and Olivia, So excited to try these cookies, as my daughter Grace was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease (thyroid), and her naturepathic doctor wants her to stay away from gluten and dairy. It’s been a huge deal trying to find foods, especially treats that taste really good, so I’m really excited to head out and get these ingredients and try it out. Thanks again for all that you girls do to inspire all of us to live our best lives! Love you, Wendy T.

mmmm… you made my tummy grumble… im at work and I watched the video.. cant wait to try it!

Thanks ladies!

much love!
Liba – obsessed fan!

Thanks for a great video! The cookies sound awesome!
But awww you didn’t figure out the calories for us πŸ™ I know you said that they weren’t low in calories, but do you know about how many calories per cookie?

I’m gluten and dairy free so I’m very excited to try this! Thanks for the recipe and video! You make a great baking team. πŸ™‚

I have a real hard time with dairy…so, I always like to include gluten & dairy free recipes!! You will have to share some of your favorite recipes with us! Let me know what you think when you try them! xo

O-M-Goodness!!! I was just on pinterest this weekend looking for an amazing pumpkin cookie recipe. And look at you!!! You did all the hard work for me! Thank You! I actually didn’t find a recipe I liked as well as this one. Well done! I can’t wait to make these:-) I am planning on taking them along with some tasty paleo chili to a work potluck this week.
If you are totally into cooking with pumpkin and other fall veggies, try paleo harvest stew with pumpkin, butternut squash soup(also Paleo), and orange sweet potato baked chips. So Devine!
Thank you so much ladies for all of your inspiration. 28 more pounds to go and I can say I’ve lost 100# naturally (Which will also incidently send me into ONE-derLand!!!!) Totally pumped. Nothing can stop me now! Luvs:-)

D-E-L-I-S-H!!! These cookies are a raving success! I agree with Sara though, These cookies are meant to be shared… or frozen!!! So good that it is difficult to stop at one. Use your will power ladies! I am taking my willpower to work and letting the masses gobble it up:-) The work potluck is going to be so awesome thanks to this sweet fall addition.

Yes, meant to be shared! This a cookie I feel good about sharing with people since it doesn’t have all the junk in it! Hooray for a cookie with wholesome ingredients that doesn’t taste like dirt!! πŸ˜‰

These look so delicious! I’m definitely making them soon. I’ve started baking a lot more lately as well as taking traditional recipes and making them healthier. I even told my family that this holiday season I’m taking charge of the menu. All the fried stuff will be banned, the sugary treats replaced by healthier version. To my surprise, they are one board.
I started changing my lifestyle 2 years ago. 55lbs down, 9lbs away from my goal weight, working toward my ACSM certification, I never felt this happy an energetic. I am so grateful to say I am rubbing off on my family. They started eating healthier, move more and my dad, who’d always resist to regular workouts, let me put together a training program for him. He’s always reporting back to me about his progress, been doing it diligently for over 2 months now. According to him his strength/endurance improved, not just at the gym but in his daily life, and according to my mom, he’s lost weight. Next step: fixing he’s diet. He’s finally OK to let me do that. I am over the moon:)

I made these today, they are SO good! I used a tablespoon to measure them out, I definitely suggest making them smaller for less calories! I ended up with 33 cookies so it came out to be only 63 calories per cookie! However the rest will be going to work because they are hard to stop at one! πŸ™‚
Thanks ladies for the recipe!

For this certain recipe, it’s on the “Paleo Approved” list. Also Coconut oil is a great healthy fat and is better for baking than vegetable or canola oil. All natural is best!!

You two have been my favorite duo on Biggest Loser! And I’ve watched every season!

Thanks for the recipe for the cookies! I came across your blog while I was looking for a healthy option for pumpkin cookies, and these are so yummy! I made them last night and my husband and I loved them!

I’m excited to follow your blog! Thanks for the great post!


Love these! Just made them yesterday while I was snowed in and the bf said he would pay money for these. I cut the maple syrup in half and also didn’t use as much coconut oil (maybe a little more than 2/3 of what was suggested) and they came out great! They didn’t spread but I’m assuming that’s due to less liquid in them. Still delicious! Thanks!
