The pumpkin plague is still spreading. I have been struck by this not-so-horrible plague and can't stop with the pumpkin eating! Call me a "cheater cheater pumpkin eater" if you must! Pumpkin has a lot of healthy nutrients like potassium, fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin c! So it's a win-win situation!
This afternoon, I worked up a sweet tooth after my run. My favorite thing to do is create things spur of the moment with random ingredients in the kitchen. I was craving something sweet, healthy, and pumpkin-y, so I decided on cookies!
It's the perfect fall sweet treat!
Ingredients *1 Cup Almond Flour, *1/2 Cup Coconut Flour, *1 Tsp. Vanilla Bean Paste or 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract, *2 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon, *1 Tsp. Baking Powder, *1 Tsp. Baking Soda, *1 Cup Pure Pumpkin, *1 Large Egg, *3 Tbsps. Coconut Oil, *2 Packets Truvia or 1 Tbsp. Honey. *2 Tablespoons Butterscotch Chips, *2 Tbsps. Dark Chocolate Chips, and *2 Tbsps. Dried Cranberry.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and almond flour.
After combining the wet ingredients to the almond flour, mix the coconut flour in.
Melt the coconut oil and stir it into the cookie dough.
Add the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and dried cranberries in.
Mix well! Taste to determine if you'd like to add sweetener or not. It's all based on your sweet preference.
Drop a tablespoon sized spoonful of the cookie batter onto a greased baking sheet.
Once you form the cookies, they will not rise or spread out.
You could make them into pumpkin shapes if you'd like to get creative!
Bake 10-13 minutes or until bottoms are brown!
