Cleaned-Up Cookies: Pumpkin Bites

It is fall! And fall means Halloween, Thanksgiving, sweaters, and pumpkin! I love everything pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin chili, and of course pumpkin COOKIES!  This recipe is “cleaned up”.  It uses almond flour/meal in place of white flour and coconut sugar or organic raw brown sugar in place of white sugar.  I prefer coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is a perfect choice for these cookies, its caramel taste compliments the pumpkin perfectly.  These cookies are a soft cake like texture. No one will guess they are not made with flour! The heat up nicely in the microwave and are a delicious breakfast treat (or anytime treat) with a cup of coffee or tea.  Pumpkin spice tea is a perfect match for them!

At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
