I LOVE pumpkin! So in honor of the plethora of pumpkin all around, I have made a pumpkin cookie perfect for the trail!
Tested this recipe out with the bae and care coordinators at work, so normal people approved 🖒. The bae gave his usual feedback of it being tasty but it’s still “bird food” – so tough to please the manly man!! He hates oatmeal 😀. My coworkers on the other hand loved it, described as “a healthy and hearty snack or even a quick breakfast.”
My intention completely, who doesn’t love a cookie for breakfast?!?!
The whole recipe makes 9 cookies when using about 1/4 cup scoops, but you can make them bigger or smaller.
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
The whole recipe provides 1422 kcal, 62 g protein, 139 g carbohydrate (19 g fiber), 72 g fat and 145 mg sodium.
Each cookie is roughly 158 kcal, 7 g protein, 15 g carbohydrate (2 g fiber), 8 g fat and 16 mg sodium – when making 9 cookies from the batch.
My favorite cold/dry “meal” yet!
