Autumn Oatmeal Cookies

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S Autumn Oatmeal Cookies hit the spot on a cool fall day.  Perfect with a cup of spiced tea.  These cookies are easy to throw together and make the house smell amazing.  They are chalk full of good fiber…whole wheat flour, oats, and pumpkin…what’s not to love?  Give them a try.

RECIPE

Preheat oven to 350 and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.  These will bake for 15 minutes and this recipe makes approximately 2 -2 1/2 dozen cookies

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:

1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seed in 3 tablespoons of water til goopy)

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup applesauce (you may use 1/2 cup vegan butter if you wish)

1 teaspoon maple extract (you can use vanilla in a pinch but the maple is awesome)

1/2 cup chopped nuts – I use walnuts but you could use pecans or macadamia

Mix the dry ingredients to incorporate well and then mix in the wet until combined.  Stir in the nuts.  I use a cookie scoop to drop balls of cookies onto the parchment and then smash down with a fork.  You could use a kitchen tablespoon also.  Just try to keep them all the same size.

Bake for 15 min… let cool slightly and ENJOY! img_6645img_6646img_6647img_6648img_6652
