I didn’t forget what I promised you last month for my next Whole Foods post so I’m here today with some yummy fall baking plus a couple extras! I started out by heading to my local Whole Foods and couldn’t pass up these beauties as I was entering the store.
I waited long enough to pick up some pumpkins since our trip was mid October so I had to get more than usual this year…and I wouldn’t mind a couple more 🙂
On to the baking part…I saw this recipe for pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and just had to whip some up! This is such a simple recipe to make, but the dough chilling part is crucial. I used to always ignore that part of recipes and wondered why my cookies always ended up flat and not good the next day. This is why folks, chill your dough! Whole Foods made this recipe easy for me as they had all their fall baking essentials grouped together in one section!
And here are how the beautiful cookies turned out! To me they taste more like a breakfast cookie but super yummy with a tall glass of milk nonetheless. I also made this recipe with the remaining pumpkin as I figured you can never have too much pumpkin and who wants to let it go to waste?? And like the dough chilling is crucial so is the sea salt in the second recipe, really the icing on the top!
Wonder where those pumpkins when to? All arranged on my “faux front porch” or lack thereof.
I’m obsessed with stacking my pumpkins like topiaries, I would literally buy all the pumpkins if the hubs would let me!
and here are your “average” pumpkins paired with my mum that’s not loving the weather we’ve been having but it looks like fall weather might be here to stay now. Wondering why I still have my “summer” flowers out? 1. I’m alright with mixing colors and bringing seasons together 2. flowers are dang expensive 3. they look so good! So there you have it, no need to just waste things because the season changed or you’re switching up your decor.
