These Skinny Pumpkin Protein Cookies are perfectly soft with just the right amount of pumpkin and spice! These cookies are incredibly simple to make and at just under 50 calories per cookie you can't go wrong - even if you ate two or three in one sitting! 

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats or 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup protein powder or additional 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or additional cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips for topping
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. If using rolled oats, use a food processor or blender to grind them to a flour-like consistency. 

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  4. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir together wet ingredients. Then stir the entire mixture together. It will seem very dry at first, keep stirring. It will become batter-like eventually.

  5. Scoop 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) of dough onto baking sheet per cookie. Flatten them out slightly, as they don't spread much. Sprinkle with a few chocolate chips if desired before baking, and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Storing pumpkin protein cookies: Unlike most cookie recipes, these pumpkin cookies do not store well beyond a day at room temperature. Because of the canned pumpkin and how moist these cookies are, they tend to get sticky when kept at room temperature for very long. It's best to store the cookies in the refrigerator after the first day.
