Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pizzookie Fitnessified

You are going to be proud of me for this one!

So, last week I was busy cooking for 21 people.  I cooked for about 3 days.  I made from the appetizers through the desserts and all from scratch.  YIKES!

And even though there was so much to make, I still made an extra dish……. Pizzookie!

I knew that with the Holiday approaching and being in the kitchen cooking so much, I was going to need a healthy snack.  But one that tasted yummy because I was cooking some yummy stuff and I didn’t want to be tempted.  So I wanted the snack to taste so yummy that I wouldn’t care for the food i was cooking.

Thats what I love about Healthy Cooking, it can be so tasty and enjoyable.  And I love that people are starting to realize that they don’t have to feel deprived in order to lose weight and get great results.  Like today, I had My Almond French Toast for breakfast from My Eat To Be Fit Book…..soooo yum 🙂

Well, it worked!

I fitnessified this recipe from my friend Katie from Chocolate Covered Katie.  I love her recipes and even though they are healthy I step them up a tad more and make them FITNESSIFIED!

She calls them this because they are a mix between a cookie and a pizza (cuz it looks like one).

You are going to love this one.

I can’t tell enough how delicious this is.  I had it with a cup of coffee and man oh man was it amazing.  It was so good that even though I baked a home made apple pie and pumpkin brownies and there were a ton other desserts, all i wanted was a piece of this Pizzookie.
