Baking > Studying

Sometimes you have to pick your priorities…I promised my copy editing class that I’d bring baked goods to celebrate our last day of class so Wednesday evening I dropped everything I was doing to get my bake on. Final exams studying can wait! Oops? After spending an hour or two pinning cookie ideas, I decided to put a healthy spin on my favorite oatmeal treat with pumpkin. What a winning combination! Best thing…no butter, no sugar. What? Is that real? Yep. Believe it.

Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins

Easy, quick and guilt-free. Simply combine all the dry ingredients (except the oats and raisins) in one bowl and in a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg whites, applesauce, vanilla, agave, canola oil and canned pumpkin. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients, stir in the raisins and oats, then roll into small balls. Place the dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet and lightly press down with a fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 375°F and enjoy! 

What is your favorite Christmas cookie? 

Sprinkled with Love,
Lauren
