Pumpkin has become one of my favourite things to cook and bake with this season. So naturally, I made a spin on my classic skillet cookie with this healthy pumpkin chocolate chip skillet cookie. It is paleo and free of refined sugar but still has that warm gooey comforting cookie feel.
So why do I love pumpkin? Here are the health benefits of pumpkin.
Pumpkin is rich in carotenoids which is great for keeping the immune system strong and healthy. It is also loaded with zinc which helps boost the immune system.
The beta-carotene in pumpkin is a great anti-inflammatory.
Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, 7g per cup, which keeps your bowels healthy.
