Fall is finally here in the Northeast. The days are getting shorter and the winds are getting cooler. It's a great time to indulge your sweet tooth and whip a a batch of Guilt Free Pumpkin Carob Chip Cookies. This is a natural and relatively healthy cookie recipe. Best of all, it's easy to prepare. (and they are extra yummy when paired with a skinny maple walnut cappuccino or pumpkin spice latte)
