Happy Sunday! 😀
I’m dropping by today to share a delicious fall treat for y’all – Are you a cookie monster like me?
If you’ve ever heard of the 21 Day Fix Plan or read about it, you’ll recognize these cookies. I decided to do a Fall twist to them. This batch makes 16 small cookies and a serving is 2 cookies (one yellow container treat).
If you are NOT doing the 21 Day Fix or want to add some “protein pizzaz” to the cookies, I added 2 Tbsps of Vanilla Protein and they tasted pretty bomb. But trust me, these cookies are delicious on their own.
They also can be made gluten-free and vegan by using appropriate oats and chocolate chips. Yummy as a snack or for a quick breakfast, enjoy!Pumpkin Spice & Nutty Oatmeal Cookies Ingredients:
- 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice*
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp pumpkin seed pepitas*
- 1 Tbsp toasted pecans*
- 1 Tbsp almond slivers*
- 1 tsp of maple extract*
Oven goes to 350 degrees; preheat. Combine oats, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a bowl. Then add in applesauce, chocolate chips and nuts/seeds and mix well.
Drop tablespoon sized cookies on a baking sheet, bake for 14-16 minutes. BOOM you are done!
(*Original recipe has 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of toasted pecans and no vanilla)
