Victory Spice Cookies

Finally, victory!!! It took me 7 attempts to make the perfect pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookie. They spread like normal cookies, they have the texture of gooey bakery cookies, and they have plenty of flavor. The best part is they are: refined sugar free, egg free, dairy free, (vegan), grain free and gluten free. WOW! It was tough making them. Some of the previous recipes I created were too puffy or too round or too cakey. This is the perfect cookie. All ingredients will be linked so they can be purchased on amazon!

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups of Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground sea salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 “Egg Replacer
1 cup sucanat brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp avocado oil (for pan)
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice

DIRECTIONS:
1. Dry ingredients: In a small mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spice
2. Wet ingredients: In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin puree, vanilla, egg, sugar, and maple syrup
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
4. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the wet
5. “Grease” the baking sheet (pan) with avocado oil
6. Use an ice cream scoop (mine has a scraper) to put the dough onto the pan
7. Bake for 15 minutes (check it at 10 mins, then at 15) cookies should be golden brown with dark brown edges
8. Scream for joy because you made amazing cookies!

Carob Chip Brownies

Carob is a very interesting cousin of chocolate. It is kind of like berries and chocolate mixed. If you are wanting to cut back on chocolate and slowly replace it with carob (great for people with autoimmune diseases such as eczema, asthma, allergies) then this is a good start. This recipe still uses cocoa powder but the more used to carob you get you get start doing half carob powder half cocoa and then eventually just carob. Here is the carob powder I order off of Amazon.
