Saw this on spark people
and decided to give it a try.
Mine did not look like their pictures as all! I think they cheated and actually used butter in theirs!!
One of the winning points of this recipe was the no butter, substituting pumpkin instead.
Since i make pumpkin for the pups, i do tend to have a number of frozen containers in the freezer with “fresh” pumpkin! Much cheaper than the can, and i know exactly what all is in there! Since i can’t really leave alone, i pretty much made this recipe my own, and changed up a few things!
3 tsp vanilla (real home made vanilla)
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cups regular white flour
1 cup dried cranberries (craisins)
-Beat together pumpkin and sugar
-Add eggs and vanilla, beat well
-Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon salt ; mix
-Stir in oats, craisins and m&m’s
-Drop rounded spoonfuls onto silpat on cookie sheet (flatten with spoon or hand or whatever)
So, it was a fun experiment, but i don’t think i’ll be trying these again… Definitely healthier, but more a breakfast treat than a cookie!
