This is an old recipe from my mom's side of the family, tweaked healthy : ) Every fall around Halloween and Thanksgiving, my mom would make batches of pumpkin cookies and we would look forward to snacking on them when we got home from school. I made them over the weekend, and they were quickly devoured!
These beauties are addicting! They are so moist and perfectly sweet. You can enjoy them for breakfast, with afternoon tea, or for dessert! No need to feel guilty about eating them either--they are about as healthy as it gets. Pumpkin is rich in beta carotene, vitamin C and fiber. Speaking of fiber, there is more of that in the almond flour and tiger nut flour (prebiotics!) A dessert that is gut friendly and tasty? Success!
