When I got home I was craving something sweet, something pumpkin and something with protein in it. I did a little searching online and decided to make these:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp agave nector (b/c I didn't have molasses)
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup craisins (so much better than raisins)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (makes 12 cookies) and bake for 20 minutes.
The cookies turned out pretty well. They were a little mooshy at first, but I think I just went at them too soon. They started hardening up a little with time.
In other news...it's going to be 60 DEGREES here tomorrow!!!!! I hope my muscles are feeling better by tomorrow so I can go out for a run after work. This is the warmest it has been since the fall and it's going to stay there for about 3 days, so I have to take advantage of it while I can!
