Getting ready for Halloween? I am! And of course that entails whipping up something equally sweet and healthy. Baking in general can sometimes be a little intimidating for me, even with how much I do find myself baking… I love it, but on an off day, it can bring me to cursing out my oven. It’s so precise, and coming up with baked recipes takes time, patience, trial and error… and probably a sense of humor. Luckily, I tend to have all these things… so I tried my hand at cookies. Which by the way, are the easiest thing to bake on the fly. The chances of messing up are less likely, at least for me. So I’m pretty stoked that these cookies I’ve dreamt up came out perfectly on the first try! They are so chewy from the pumpkin puree, but nice and thick from the oats and hemp seeds. There is no refined sugar, just maple syrup – my FAVE.
So you can indulge a little in a sweet tooth for Halloween without getting caught up in the sugar frenzy around you.
