Pumpkin Protein Cookies

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice and pumpkin everything … and Emily from Fit Home & Health provided us with an awesome Pumpkin Protein Cookie recipe using Vanilla Ice Cream Level-1!

Ingredients:
2-3/4C Oat flour
1t Sea salt
1t Baking soda
2 Eggs
1t Vanilla extract
1/4C Raw honey
1-1/3C 1st Phorm Level-1 Vanilla Ice Cream
1- 4oz Baby food jar of applesauce
1/2t Nutmeg
1/2t Ground cloves
1-1/2t Cinnamon
1C Organic canned pumpkin
1/3C Dried cranberries
1/3C Chopped walnuts

Directions:
– Mix 1st Phorm protein powder and all other dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Mix all wet ingredients together in a small mixing bowl.

– Next, combine wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix for 2 mins at medium speed with a hand mixer. Dough will be slightly sticky- this is what you want.

– Place dough in refrigerator for 30 mins to set. When dough is nearly set, preheat oven to 350*

– Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray and drop cookies about 1.5″ in size using a spoon or cookie scoop.

NOTE: Cookies won’t spread much while so they only need about 1.5″ space between one another.

– Next, flatten cookies slightly by using the back of a spoon sprayed with non-stick cooking spray so dough does not stick to it.

– Place cookies in preheated oven and bake 8-10 minutes.

– Remove and place onto a cooling rack and let cookies fully cool before packaging in an airtight container.
