Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
Does the idea of flourless baking make you nervous? Do you think gluten free cooking tastes like cardboard? Think again. This recipe is for Flourless Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies and are great tasting with plenty of texture to hold your interest as you eat them. They are also good for you—not because there is no flour in them, but because of the oatmeal and pumpkin, which are super foods for all of us to eat regularly.
This recipe uses plenty of ingredients that you might not be familiar with, such as arrow root powder or seed butters. Try them and see how unique a flavor they contribute to what ever you are making. Here, it makes a dense and flavorful cookie, made even better because of the oats and pumpkin. Oats are an incredible food. Oats are grown almost everywhere in the world, and offer tremendous nutritional benefits, especially if they are eaten without being processed with additional sugars and additives. They help lower cholesterol if eaten regularly, keep you regular, too (!), and help to balance out blood sugar levels. They are a great food to teach your kids to eat often. Pumpkin is another great veggie that we too often just eat in the fall. Sugar pumpkins are usually what you find in pumpkin puree, making the puree much sweeter than if other pumpkins were used. In any case, pumpkin is loaded with fiber (like oatmeal) a component that most of us lack in our daily eating plan. So eat up these cookies and let the kids have at them. They are loaded with good nutrition.
These Flourless Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are also easy to make. Not adding flour does not make them much different to blend and cook than any other type of cookie. So enjoy them, and make them often.
