It’s officially fall! My favorite time of the year! Leaves changing colors, football, crisp, cool weather and pumpkin. Yes. Pumpkin. So many wonderful pumpkin treats out there, but some are overloaded with fat and sugar and aren’t conducive to fat loss. But I just found a Paleo recipe that I cleaned up and made even healthier!
Clean Pumpkin Cookies
Makes: 2 Dozen small cookies
– 1 cup almond or oat flour
– ¼ cup pumpkin puree, canned
– ¼ tsp baking soda
– ½ cup dark chocolate chips
– ½ cup almond butter
– ½ cup walnuts, chopped
– ½ cup stevia
– 2 eggs
– 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
– 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and spread a parchment paper over a cookie sheet.
Place all the wet ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
Place the flour in a different bowl and stir in rest of the dry ingredients until well combined. Fold the dry mixture gradually into the wet one until they blend together to form a uniform mixture.
Drop small portions of the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet and press each of them gently with your palm to flatten them out slightly.
Place the cookies in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Seal them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge.
