Weekend Baking Round up

Every year around this time I feel the overwhelming need to bake.  I think its not only ingredients that are in season (apples, pumpkins) but also the cool air.  I can't stand turning on the oven in the summer but when the temps start dropping it feels so homey to have something baking in the oven.  As I have said before, I am addicted to Pinterest and discovering new recipes.  Over the weekend I decided to give a few a try.  

-Mrs. Fields Oatmeal cookies mix (Found it Christmas Tree Shop) but I added white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

I love these Pumpkin cookies.  They are on the healthy side, very little sugar, whole wheat flour and no butter.  There are some chocolate chips so this really satisfies the sweet tooth but I do not have to feel guilty eating it or packing it as a snack for my little guy.

I was really excited to try out this spider chocolate chip cookies idea.  I decided to stay with the recipe provided because I wanted to make sure it was a flatter cookie that would be easy to put the spider on.  My husband LOVED these cookies and I think they are a really cute festive idea for this time of year.  I am going to make them for a fall festival bake sale at my sons school.

I also made these Healthy Carrot muffins from Martha Stewart.  This is actually the second time I have made them.  They satisfied everyone in my house which is amazing.  My kids loved them for breakfast, I love them and my husband (who is not always the easiest to please especially when something is healthy) enjoys them.  I found a Jack-O-Lantern cupcake mold I forgot I had and made half the muffins using it.  The boys loved it and probably half the reason they eat them!

All in all the weekends baking was a success.  I would 100% recommend trying out any of these recipes.
