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 eating pumpkin?
Ok, so let me show you a quick, easy to make recipe using pumpkin. 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. Delicious 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? Just fell in love with my healthy almond flour pumpkin cookies and making them was a fun activity for the family as well.
For this cookie recipe I chose date sugar because it is a natural form of sugar, and also gives great flavor to any baking recipe. Remember that it is best to switch to healthier and unrefined ingredients If you are tying to improve your diet.
Almond flour pumpkin cookies smell and taste amazing
Good to know also 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. My pumpkin cookies have a soft texture, kind of like a muffin. Fall scents and cozy feelings is what these amazing pumpkin cookies bring.
