Why is Starbucks so expensive?
Seriously, the other day I dropped by to buy myself a nice Pumpkin Spice Latte as a treat… and left five minutes later six dollars poorer. And only a small (aka “tall”) coffee to show for it!
If you’re like me, and not willing to spend a fortune on coffee everyday, but still want to enjoy all the flavors of a Pumpkin Spice Latte, then these cookies are about to become your new favorite snack.
Made with rich pumpkin, spicy cinnamon, and even a few decedent butterscotch chips, these cookies could not get any better. Nor could they get any healthier, as they don’t contain any gluten, oil, or butter!
Plus, paired with a tall (and inexpensive!) cup of homemade coffee halfway through your afternoon, these cookies will make your day.
In fact, they’re make your week!
That is, until you finish them all and have to make a second batch!
But there’s no harm in that. 😉
