Guilt Free Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies - High Fiber & Protein

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

Preheat Oven to: 
350 degrees

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)

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!


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

My Pumpkin....Stitched Boo

I just LOVE Fall and all that comes with it. I look forward to this time of year because I get excited to have another place for creative outbursts, the porch.  

Because I heart sewing (a lot), I decided to paint what appears to be a stitched pattern of the word B O O on one of the many pumpkins we have out front; it was a perfect fit to my personality.  I also covered the stem with black paint, and the finishing touch was an Orange ribbon with white polka dots.

In the past I've decorated a White Pumpkin with our last initial in a calligraphy script; that's always a winner.  And, if it's your first Halloween as a new couple, consider two pumpkins, one with Mr.  and the other with Mrs.

Why a Blog....

it seemed only fitting to have a place for me to organize, and share, my creativity outbursts.
