35 Calorie Pumpkin Cookies

"These cookies are absolutely delicious and practically guilt free! Only about 35 calories per cookie! They are so tasty and soft you would never guess how healthy they really are. Great dessert or snack for the fall and winter seasons. I have a few in my fridge all year long to keep me from snacking on more "sinful" temptations..."

Ready In:
40-48 Cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir until blended. In another bowl combine all of the remaining ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture stirring until well blended. Cover cookie sheets with aluminum foil, and lightly grease with a non-stick cooking spray. Drop small spoonfuls of dough onto the sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool. I love to refrigerate these cookies and serve them cold, but I'm sure they would taste great at room temperature as well.

    I'm always up for good tasting pumpkin cookie or bread, & these cookies really hit a high note for us! Begrudgingly I shared some with a neighbor couple, but had I kept them all, they wouldn't have lasted any time at all! Definitely GREAT COOKIES, & certainly a keeper of a recipe!

    Considering these cookies have virtually no fat and little natural sugar and are only 35 calories each, they are OK. They are very light with not much substance and the artificial sweetener tastes artificial. I will not make them again. On the calorie count, it says the recipe makes 40-48 cookies and the recipe serves 20-24. That would make the calorie count per cookie closer to 30 calories, I think.

    These are absolutely delicious and I'd rate them 5 stars for taste if I weren't confused by the ingredient list: The recipe says 1 1/4 cups splenda and 3 tablespoons honey. I used the honey and 1/8 cup raw cane sugar, and that was really plenty sweet. I can't imagine that 1 1/4 cups sweetener can be right. Even my really sweet toothed husband said he can't imagine them being still edible with more than three times the sweetener I used.<br/>I'll definitely make tham again but will stick to my 1/8 cup of cane sugar :)<br/>Thanks for sharing anyway, I really love these cookies!<br/>Made for I've Saved All These recipes Tag Game / Diabetic Forum.

    This receipe is terrific! I was a little confused by the 2 different calorie facts. 1 says 35 calories/cookie and the other under nutritional facts says 61.1 calories. Either way, an EXCELLENT low cal. receipe. I didin't have plain yogurt so substituted 1/2 c. of sugarless orange mamalaid. Yum!


Lately I have been getting more serious about my passion for cooking. I especially love to create desserts and other bakery favorites. There's nothing better than the smell of a hot loaf of bread fresh from the oven. As recently as 2 years ago I weighed in at about 285 lbs. Today I am down to a mere 160, and I did it simply with diet and exercise. My greatest challenge has been to make the foods I love, while not slipping back into my old habits. That's why I am dedicated to constantly finding and creating recipes low in fat and carbs.
