Pumpkin Blender Cookies

6a00d8358081ff69e201bb093172b7970dThank you to abeautifulmess.com for this YUMMY grain-free cookie recipe.

I LOVE pumpkin.  I LOVE easy quick recipes. I LOVE gluten-fee.  Baking was never one of my strong points.  I would rather cook a HUGE meal then bake BUT these make it really easy.

Hopefully the weather will cool off a little so I won’t have to run the air conditioner when I have the oven on.  I know it is CRAZY BUT a girl has to do what a girl has to do, right?

Yes, this is a grain-free, gluten free, dairy-free, and no sugar added blender cookie recipe.  They are more like little snack cakes because they are a fairly soft, sort of a mix between a pancake and a cookie. They are totally delicious and make a great afternoon snack or even warmed up and topped with fruit for a morning sort-of pancake option.

Grain-Free Pumpkin Blender Cookies, makes 6
Adapted from Detoxinista’s Almond Butter Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/2 banana* (approx. 2 oz.)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of salt

If you don’t keep a bag of frozen, sliced banana in your freezer for smoothies then make sure you use a fresh, ripe banana instead, but only use about 2 oz. (roughly half a medium-sized banana) or else the texture will be off.

Directions:

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend just until smooth. Spoon the batter in 1/4 cup increments onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat.6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c88e1231970b6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d217c883970c

Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.

Place them in a ziplock bag, seal, and refrigerate until you want to eat them. They will be fine in the refrigerator for up to a full week. If you make a bigger batch and save them for longer, consider freezing them.

Can’t wait to hear what you think?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

  1. Gluten free is great! I wasn’t really conscious of this until my son married his wife. Her and her mother and mother’s sisters recently discovered that a lot of their problems stemmed from being gluten intolerant. I’m always sharing recipes with them now. Thanks.

    1. My daughter was diagnosed with celiac this month so we are always looking for recipes. I find when I stay away from gluten, my MS and Addison symptoms subside some which is a BING help. If you have any yummy recipes you would like me to share, let me know. Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
