from "Delicious Meets Nutritious" (click here to learn more)
This recipe will save you half the sugar over the traditional pumpkin cookie recipe! It is soooo good!
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup Xagave
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cup pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1-2 cups rolled oats (optional)
Mix pumpkin, eggs, butter, Xagave, and vanilla with Bosch bowl using the cookie paddles. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and mix with pumpkin mixture. Add chocolate chips and oats. Scoop about 6 cookies per cookie sheet, leaving 2 to 3 inches between cookies. Bake 325 degrees for 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Note from Paula: We went through these cookies way too fast. You might want to consider doubling your recipe. They are so good and you will love them! :)

It is always fun to have the grandkids/kids help you cook. This builds great memories! Involve the kids and start building!
