Healthy Almond Flour Pumpkin Cookies
Halloween is just around the corner and I wanted to try a new pumpkin recipe. Did you know that some people actually just buy pumpkins for decoration and after carving, throw away the eatable and best part? Yes! It makes me so sad and I always think: “OMG” what a waste! Pumpkin is so delicious and nutritious. Why not make delicious pumpkin recipes, teach kids where real food comes from, and get some of the many great benefits of pumpkin?
Ok guys let me show you a quick, easy to make recipe using pumpkin. Please, please, please don’t throw any pumpkins away…….EVER! This almond flour pumpkin cookies recipe is a great example of what you can do with your pumpkin after carving. Cookies that are actually GOOD for you!
Pumpkin Cookies Sweetened With Date Sugar
I tried to use the best ingredients possible and no refined sugars. The results? Fell in love with my healthy almond flour pumpkin cookies. For these cookies, I chose date sugar because it is natural and gives great flavor to any baking recipes. Remember it is best to switch to healthier and unrefined ingredients If you are tying to improve your diet.
This recipe incorporates top of the line ingredients like almond flour,coconut oil,and ghee. The cookies were ready in less than 30 minutes and the smell coming out of the oven was just wonderful for a fall evening. Pumpkin cookies have a soft texture, kind of like a muffin.
If you want to try regular almond flour cookies, please see my Perfect Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. There is nothing compared to the smell of homemade cookies coming out of the oven. Something I want my kids to grow up with definitely. Oh, and if you love chocolate, you can make this recipe adding 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Pumpkin desserts go really well with chocolate too.
