Pumpkin Spice Cookies

It's fun to come across new blogs that inspire me. The one where this recipe comes from, Dishing Up the Dirt, is about a farmer girl who cooks. Of course, I have to make cookies first, but plenty of other dishes look scrumptious.

adapted from Dishing Up the Dirt

1 cup all purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of ground nutmeg
dash of ground ginger
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup sugar or sucanat
1/2 cup brown sugar or sucanat
1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (slightly melted)
1/2 tsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350.

Stir together dry ingredients (flour, oats, sugar, spices, salt, flaxseeds and baking soda) in a mixing bowl.

Stir together the wet ingredients (pumpkin, coconut oil, and vanilla).

Combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix well until everything is evenly incorporated.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a greased baking sheet. Lightly press balls with the back of the spoon to slightly flatten. Space cookies about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes.

Remove and let cool slightly before eating.
