This Little Piggy: Pumpkin, Chocolate Chip & Raisin Cookie Drops

This happened again. When? Last week. State of mind? Unstable. End result? So f*cking good. Minus a hefty fat/calorie content. Comments: I’m not lying when I say that I’ve had 3 cookies for dinner instead of a balanced meal of protein, greens and healthy carbs.

What I used:


1 cup Becel

1/5 cups brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup milled flaxseed

2 cups gluten free flour

1 cup organic pumpkin

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

2 cups quick oats

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup slivered almonds

A dash of sea salt

How I Did It:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the KitchenAid, cream together Becel, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, beating well. Combine flour, oats, flax baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg into it and mix well. Add chocolate chips, raisins, almonds & sea salt. Drop rounded teaspoon fulls onto cookie sheets. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove and cool. Try not to stuff 2 into your mouth at a time. Makes approx 5 dozen cookies. A more than sufficient amount to satisfy any craving.

 Enjoy. And please don’t blame me for any subsequent weight gain. These are basically carrots sticks disguised in cookie form. Look for sympathy elsewhere.
