Yummmm. I think I had about three cookies worth of batter as I licked the spatula, spoon, bowl, food processor and counter clean.
I make a lot of Vegan friendly desserts because I do not tolerate dairy well. Part of vegan baking is accepting the failures. The pumpkin pure has revived me. It adds texture and bounce that mimics eggs and butter, it is spectacular!
So in honor of fall and all things pumpkin, here is my recipe:
½ cup of pumpkin pure
½ cup of creamy peanut butter
¼ cup agave nectar
¾ cup cocoa powder (or cacao)
2 tsp cinnamon
Combine everything in a food processor or vita mix. Set in the refrigerator and allow to set for 10-15 minutes. Use this as an opportunity to clean the kitchen.
Line a baking sheet (or two) and scoop the batter into tablespoon size balls onto the parchment paper.
Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven. I would keep an eye on them.
This recipe makes 18 itty bitty bite size cookies.
