Heart Healthy Pumpkin & Raisin Cookies

Hello blog world! The past couple of weeks have been beyond hectic! I had my last ‘real’ day of school on Monday and took an exam today. I have one more exam tomorrow and then I am free for the summer! I worked out early this morning and figured I would use my spare time to do a little vegan baking! This is a recipe I created because I was in the mood for something sweet but not heavy.

Pumpkin & Raisin Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Heart Smart Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • Cinnamon and Stevia to taste
  • 1/8 cup Light Soy Milk
  • Mini box of raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, mix all of your ingredients
  3. Spray a pan with PAM and scoop about 1 tbs of the pumpkin mixture onto pan.
  4. Press cookies flat with a fork.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until done

Yields 11 cookies at about 35 calories a piece.

I am not sure of the exact calories, I just estimated that number in my head! They are perfectly chewy and dense. I really think the raisins make the cookie. I had two and my mom had two cookies as well! I put the rest in the freezer for later lunches this summer!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wasn’t hungry when I woke up this morning.  So, rather than force myself to eat I decided to do something I enjoy: bake!  I used Veganomicon’s Wheat Free Chocolate Chip cookie recipe.  It was so relaxing and fun to bake- The last time I baked was during Christmas (time flies!)

Cookie Dough!  I can’t lie, I definitely licked the spoon when I was done!

Fresh out of the oven. 

A close up for you guys!  They were crumbly due to the oat flour but they are delicious.  I actually made the oat flour myself by putting oats in a food processor!

I haven’t had cookies with real sugar for quite some time but now that I have given up Splenda and all artificial sweeteners I can actually enjoy a real dessert.  I baked these without knowing the calories but of course I had to find out when I was done.  I was shocked!  They aren’t that bad for you!  Who knows how many i’ll eat today 😛
