It wouldn't feel like Autumn without a pumpkin recipe! As these cookies contain don't contain oats and have a nut butter substitute (powder) they make for a VERY low carb and fat alternative to even regular 'healthy' treats! Give them a whirl....
2 Scoops PEScience Peanut Butter Cup Select Protein
100g Pumpkin Puree
20g Chia Seeds
20g Powdered Peanut Butter (I ordered this from Bodybuilding.com)
50g Egg Whites
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
Flavdrops/ Sweetener/ Stevia
As it was Halloween and I was carving a pumpkin, I cut the pumpkin into chunks and baked on a medium temperature in the oven for 20 minutes until soft. I mashed the pumpkin to make the puree for the mixture. (Alternatively, you could used canned pumpkin)
Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl, mix well after each one. Finally stir in the protein powder and carefully decant onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Put tray in the oven to bake for around 10 minutes (med temp)
After removing the tray, leave to cool for a few minutes.
I made the mistake of thinking mixed fruit cookie cutters were a good idea! I now know they are not! Try using a regular shaped cookie cutter or just simply cut them into rustic chunks.
Watch me make the cookies here!
