Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know..it's December.  Pumpkin is so...November. But, here's the thing.  I made pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving. {Really yummy ones} and there was pumpkin puree left over.  It was tossed in the freezer until a decision could be made on what to do with it.   These cookies from Skinny Taste have been a regular item of ours for some time.  So, it was kinda a no-brainier to make them.  They are just soooo good, I needed to share them and didn't want to wait until next fall to do it.   If you have any leftover pumpkin puree sitting in your freezer or your pantry, give these a try.  You will be so happy you did, you won't care what month it is.
{Another plus..these are low fat!}

Adapted From

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
