Hey ladies I just wanted to share a couple of my favorite recipes that I bake during the holiday’s. I love love love homemade baked goods. If you asked me my one weakness it wouldn’t be candy, ice cream or cookies in a bag, it would be my homemade sweets. We all need an “indulge myself day” right? Thanksgiving is one of those days for me.
Hope you try one or both of these during this season. One is obviously a little healthier than the other. Sometimes I will find a recipe I like and just tweak the ingredients. I would love to know which one you like best.
1 can unsweetened pumpkin 1 ½ cups brown rice flour
½ cup butter, melted 1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup agave or honey 1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 T pure vanilla ¼ tsp sea salt
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375. Mix pumpkin, butter, agave and vanilla flavoring in large bowl. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, sea salt. Add to pumpkin mixture. Fold in nuts and raisins. Place teaspoonfuls on a nonstick cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cookies stand for five minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet. They will harden as they cool.
