Pumpkin Protein Cookies

Servings: 30 (1 Serving = 1 Cookie)
Prep Time: 40 Minutes
Bake Time: 8-10 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 3/4 Cups of Oat Flour
  • 1 Tsp of Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp of Baking Soda
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup of Raw Honey
  • 1 1/3 Cup of Level-1 Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 4oz of Applesauce
  • 1/2 Tsp of Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp of Ground Cloves
  • 1 1/2 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1/3 Cup of Dried Cranberries
  • 1/3 Cup of Chopped Walnuts

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, mix the Level-1, oat flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, cranberries and walnuts.

2. In a separate, small bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla extract, honey, applesauce, and mix them all together.

3. Next, combine both mixtures in a hand mixer and mix for 2 minutes at a medium speed. The dough should be slightly sticky.

4. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.

5. While the dough is in the refrigerator, preheat the oven to 350℉.

6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray it with cooking spray.

7. When the dough is ready, remove it from the fridge and form 30 evenly-sized dough balls and put them on the baking sheet. The cookies won't spread much, so they only need 1.5" of space between each other.

8. Flatten the cookies slightly by using the back of a spoon sprayed with cooking spray so the dough doesn't stick.

9. Place the cookies in the oven and bake them for 8-10 minutes.

10. Remove the cookies, let them cool for 5 minutes, then move them to a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes before serving or storing.
