This recipe taken from a local community paper. Healthy can be defined in many ways. This would be on the "maybe a little bit healthy" side of healthy...does that make sense? Whenever a recipe instruction lists chocolate chips in the ingredients and then says its healthy, I hesitate. I know pecans are good for you too, but in moderation. The only thing I find truly healthy about this recipe is the fact it contains no oil. I have other recipes that use pumpkin instead of or even applesauce and actually I prefer it. Feel free to think this is healthy. There are worse!!!

I was worried at first since the batter is so thick but they were really moist. I stirred in the chips but sprinkled the nuts on top. My son loved these especially when he found out they had pumpkin in them. It was a great recipe to do with kids. Made for Mini cook-a-thon.
