Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup canned pureed pumpkin
1 cup xylitol - this is a great sweetener you can find at the health food store. It has 40% less calorie than table sugar and a very low glycemic index!
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cup oat flour ( w.w. is good too, a little grainier though)
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1-2 cups chocolate chips (dark, grain sweetened, milk, etc.)
Blend first 5 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients except baking soda. Sift together. Combine baking soda and milk in a small bowl until dissolved. Add baking soda mixture to wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing well. Add chocolate chips. Drop small rounded spoonfuls (about the size of a small dinner spoon) of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. ENJOY!
This recipe yields about 50 smallish cookies made from a 1-inch heaping cookie scoop.
These are delicious right out of the oven, and you probably won't make it to this point, BUT if you have left overs I suggest storing them in an air tight container in the fridge. That way they don't get soggy.
