Guilt Free Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies - High Fiber & Protein


 Guilt-Free Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies {High Fiber & Protein}



Preheat Oven to: 
350 degrees

Ingredients:
1 Stick of Butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 cup of White Sugar
1 cup of Pureed Pumpkin
2 eggs, room temp
1 teaspoon of Vanilla (I pour heavy)
2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Nutmeg
2-3 cups of Quick Oats (Bob's Red Mill)

Preparation:
Mix together dry ingredients (minus oats)
Beat Butter, sugars until creamy
Add Pumpkin, eggs and vanilla (scrap sides)
Add dry mixture to wet
Add Oats 1 cup at a time, should appear very sticky

Bake for 10-14 minutes. Top of cookies should be hard to the touch but soft when pressed.






Close all the windows before baking these because you want to 
preserve the wonderful smell!



Enjoy!!!


Nutritional Facts:  When Whole Wheat Flour and Oats are used, you gain extra Protein and Fiber that's not found in white flour alone.  Consider also adding Flaxseed and you'll gain much, much more. :D

  1. A girl after my own heart! Healthy treats! We just discovered a fat-free baking book and have been making healthy scones. I substituted sugar for Splenda. Bet you're losing weight or maintaining! We are! :-) Good for you!

  3. Hilani,
    Have you created any gluten-free recipes for cookies or cakes? Can't have wheat flour or anything with gluten.

  10. I made these last night. Right out of the oven they were great. This morning when i ate a couple more iI actually found them to be quiet dry. The only substitution I did was to use 1/4 cup trivia baking blend instead of the 1/2 cup white sugar. I think next time I will reduce the amount of flour. The last 12 cookies of the batch I added raisins too and that helped a little by adding a little more moisture and sweetness. I think these would fall more into a breakfast cookie category as one would need tea or coffee with them.
