This is my collection of healthy recipes that are family friendly, tasty, easy and fun! All are SUGAR FREE, I use healthy fats, easy to digest grains and lots of veggies. Most recipes fit into eating plans written by Haylie Pomroy- The Fast Metabolism Diet Plan, Metabolism Revolution, Food Rx Plans and Burn plans. I did not write these plans, I do not own the plans. These are my recipes I use for those plans. Of course, you don't have to be on a plan to eat these yummy recipes!
Pumpkin Cookies - Phase 3 (gluten free)
These cookies were a staple in my fall kitchen every year since 1992. My brother and his girlfriend would come over every evening to hang out. In the fall, I would make these and we would dip them in Cool Whip, as soon as the cookies were cool enough to hold. We could easily eat a whole batch between the 4 of us.
I am thrilled to be able to still make these, but updated to healthy! The taste just like I remember.
Soft cookies, like little cakes. Moist and spicy. Perfect with a cup of Dandy Blend with coconut milk! These are a grain and a healthy fat (partial) so you can have cookies for breakfast on phase 3!
These are gluten free, too!!
P.S. Since these are a partial fat, you can dip these in whipped coconut cream, if you want! Cashew Butter would be a good frosting, also!
I hope you like them as much as I do!
