Raw Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Are you on the “raw” bandwagon?

Personally, I do not. But I still find raw food recipes intriguing (and tasty).

I stumbled across this no-bake pumpkin oatmeal cookie recipe from Snack Girl. Made a few adaptations and downsized a bit, of course, so it would be a perfect fall dessert for anyone going “raw,” or anyone who just loves pumpkin cookies.

Ingredients

3 T oats

Bake it! Because chocolate is always more aromatic when warmed…

.5 t stevia (or honey, but if you use honey reduce the applesauce to 1 t)

dash of pumpkin pie spice and a very scant pinch of salt

3 t pumpkin

2 t applesauce

splash of vanilla

optional mix-ins: dark-chocolate chips, raisins, chopped dates, coconut shreds

Directions

Mix together the first three dry ingredients, and then mix in the remaining wet ingredients. Form into small balls by using the palm of your hands.

If you’d prefer a warm cookie. Simply bake at 350 degrees for about 6-7 minutes.
