24 amazing fall cookie treats!

Umm. Say what?

Oatmeal Scotchies gone pumkin, people. That’s what. I just ate one, and literally said ,outloud mind you, “Oh Wow.” (holy cow these are good!) They’re Pumpotchies!

Show me the pumpkin! I passed by the chips in the store, as I was browsing, and thought about Oatmeal Scotchies from the back of the Nestle chips butterscotch-chips bag. I bet I can make these pumpkin chips into something yummy, I thought. And I did.

I adapted these from the original Nestle Oatmeal Scotchies recipe. I literally cut the sugar in half, by omitting the white sugar. They are so sweet with the chips, I cannot imagine them sweeter. I also pumped up the flour making it whole wheat, and switched the 2 sticks of butter, for canola oil and applesauce. Again, you won’t miss a thing. Healthier is better, because then there is the zero guilt thing. It is just oats with some other stuff!
