Healthy White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

During the holidays sometimes you just need a few sweet yet healthier options on hand. These cookies are one of my go-tos for family and friends. They are even kid approved! 

This version is my take on a cookie my mom used to make. She made more of a heavy, dark molasses cookie, whereas I prefer a lighter cookie with the maple flare! Here it is just in time for Thanksgiving!

Enjoy.

Recipe:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees

 Mix all the dry ingredients together:

  • 2 cups Whole wheat Pastry Flour (if you prefer Gluten Free, sub for a another alternative flour)
  • 2 cups Almond flour (or any other flour)
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp Baking Flour
  • ½ cup Ground up flaxseed
  • ½ cup Monkfruit powdered sweetener
  • ¾ bag of Lily’s white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4tsp Nutmeg
  • 3/4tsp Cloves
  • (Or sub all 3 spices for 1 tbl of your favorite pumpkin spice mix)

 

Mix all of the wet ingredients together:

 

  • 1 Can of pumpkin puree (2 ¾ cup if you make it yourself)
  • ¼ cup Coconut oil (softened)
  • 3 Eggs
  • ½ cup Almond (or regular) milk
  • ¼ cup Grade A maple syrup

(If you like a sweet cookie, use ¼ cup honey or other fav sweetener for that added kick)

Fold the wet ingredients gently into dry until mixed well.

 

Use a cookie scoop or spoon and lay out cookies on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until desired cookie consistency. I am a fan of a soft, almost done cookie, so I cook for 12 minutes…. but that’s just me! 

 

Melt the rest of the chocolate in a small bowl and drizzle it on top of cooled cookies.

 

Let me know what you think and happy Fall!

Eggins: It’s What’s for Breakfast

by Cassandra McCoy MAT, LAT, ATC, RYT

Looking for your next breakfast food that won’t break the bank, is easy to make, easy to store AND super healthy? Look no further: Introducing Eggins. Or at least that’s what we call them!

Let’s talk about what is in the base recipe first, because after that, you get to choose your own adventure (I’ll explain in a second). Preheat your oven to 350 degree F.

Every Eggin recipe uses this base (makes 12 Eggins):

10 eggs

1tsp Pepper

1tsp Salt

1tsp Garlic powder

2TBL milk

Whisk the ingredients and set aside.

Then the real fun begins……

Grab a muffin tin! Use paper cups if you would like and grab some fillings to go in. A few ideas are….

  • Onions!
  • Avocado
  • Cheese
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Tomato
  • Bell pepper
  • Broccoli Sprouts
  • ANYTHING YOU WANT!

And just start building!

Have your kids join in! What would they like in their breakfast?

I usually make half with mushrooms and half without, as my husband isn’t a fan. That’s another great thing about this treat, you customize each eggin!

Place in the oven at 350 degree for around 15 minutes. Cook time varies on each oven, just keep an eye on them the first time you make the recipe.

After you take them out, let cool for 5 minutes. Don’t be alarmed if they flatten out a bit, that is perfectly normal.

Package your eggins in your favorite reusable container with a side of fruit and crackers. Toss into your fridge or lunch pail for a quick and easy breakfast treat on the go!
