Ghostly Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
Yummy Oatmeal Cookies
Just one won’t kill you! Bwahahahahaha!
Birthday Cake for my Bro-In-Law Eugene baked by my sister Sarah Lee!
Mark and I had a really fun Halloween this year. We dressed as an 80’s TV Crew and documented my family’s Halloween escapades all night. My mom made delicious Vegetable Soup with homemade Tortillas. For dessert I made these Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies and my sister Sarah (dressed as a piñata above) made a Graveyard inspired Chocolate Birthday Cake for my Bother-in-Law Eugene who turned “28”. She used the same recipe from her Birthday Cupcakes (get recipe!). The cool trees were made from melted vegan chocolate shaped on wax paper and the dirt is cocoa powder.
Today is the start of “Abstaining with Jerry”, a group formed on Facebook in support of my bestest buddy Jerry’s goals for healthier living. As a vegan that rarely drinks I’m already like 90% there, but this will help me focus on more whole food choices, and less sugar and oils in my diet. Speaking of sugar, here’s my cookie recipe!
Vegan Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup raw sugar (avoiding sugar? Try a banana, or applesauce)
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup walnuts or dried fruit such as raisins (optional, not shown)
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Mix together ingredients in a large bowl or mixer. Add walnuts or dried fruit. Spoon the mixture onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and flatten to achieve larger, thinner cookies. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven to cool and enjoy!
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
