Recipe time : Healthy Pumpkin Cookies

It's Pumpkin season people.. and everyone wants to have all kinds of "pumpkiny" things.. from pumpkin spiced lattes to pies and bread or even cookies.. but they are laden with calories and fat and can throw you off our diet and keep you feeling guilty..
So I went online in search of some healthy options for my pumpkin fix and found this recipe and thought I should share it with you guys!!

Here it goes..

The "42 calorie" Pumpkin cookies.. or more like cake bites... you'll love them!!

Prep Time : 5 mins
Cook Time : 15-18 mins
Makes : 32 cookies

Ingredients :

1 cup        Whole wheat flour
1 cup         All purpose flour
1 cup         White sugar
1 cup         Canned pumpkin puree (not pie mix)
1 tsp          Baking powder
1 tsp          Baking soda
2 tsp          Pumpkin pie spice ( I did not have it so I added a tsp of cinnamon and cardamom powder)
1/8 tsp       Sea salt
1/2 cup      Unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp          Vanilla or Almond extract
                 Coking spray

Method :

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Grease cookie sheer with spray
Cream sugar, applesauce, pumpkin puree and extract together.
In another bowl mix flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pumpkin spice.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Form little blobs with a spoon or if you prefer using hands make sure you wet them a little with cold water so that the prepare mix does not stick to your hands and you can shape your cookies well
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, until browned.

Enjoy them with coffee or tea.. or even with ice cream!!

You can add chocolate chips to it.. but it will increase your calorie intake..

Tell me how you liked them... You can make them for the kids at your Thanksgiving dinner... :) :)
