Pumpkin is back again this week, but this time I have a cookie edition for you that has it all (minus the refined sugar, butter and oil…yay!). I personally LOVE oatmeal raisin cookies, so when I decided to combine our favorite vegetable of the season with this classic recipe, I knew it would be a match made in macro and yumminess heaven. These cookies are also egg free and easily can be made vegan/dairy free when made with Dairy Free protein powder instead of the whey I used here. If using a sweetened protein powder (I used plain whey protein), feel free to cut out the erythritol and/or cut down on the stevia, depending on how sweet you like your cookies. I also used almond extract in lieu of vanilla extract, which I thought added the perfect almond essence touch, but traditional vanilla extract will work great here as well.
These cookies make a great grab and go snack, treat, or post lunch sweet tooth crusher. You can also spread some Greek yogurt in the center for a fun and protein packed sandwich cookie option. You know I’m a sucker for all things pumpkin and greek yogurt/cheesecake vibes;).
- 100 grams quick oats
- 110 grams Kodiak Cakes
- 80 grams whey protein (plain or vanilla)
- 50 grams erythritol (*optional)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 3 grams powdered stevia
- 4 grams sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 40 grams Iced Oatmeal Cookie spread
- 2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
- 1-15 ounce can of unsweetened pumpkin purée
- 50 grams honey or maple syrup
- 50 grams raisins
- 25 grams crushed walnuts
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then combine and mix well all wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour wet ingredients into your dry and mix well. Add in your raisins and walnuts. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and with a small ice cream scoop or teaspoon, place 2 inch mounds of cookie dough on the baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 11-12 minutes. Cookies will still be soft. Let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from your cookie sheet to set. Press down with a spatula or leave fluffy if you prefer. *Top with extra walnuts or add some mini chocolate chips for extra yum.
Makes 30 cookies.
