Oatmeal Pumpkin Chia Coconut Cookies

Healthy, and tasty cookies… Great for snacks to go and that pick-me-up cup of coffee in the morning.

Dry ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup rice cereal, 1/2 pulverized in food processor
  2. 1/4 cup and 2 TB quinoa flour (quinoa flour is gluten free and great for flavor, but all purpose flour works, too).
  3. 1/2 cup old fashioned oats or (TJ) multigrain flakes
  4. 1/4 cup organic sugar
  5. 1 TB chia seeds
  6. 2 TB unsweetened coconut flakes
  7. 2 TB cacao bits
  8. 1/2 ts baking powder
  9. pinch of salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup pureed canned pumpkin
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 ts cinnamon extract

Preheat oven to 375F.

First, grind the rice cereal in a food processor or magic bullet. Combine all the dry ingredients. Mix all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Then combine wet and dry ingredients. With a small icecream scoop make about 1inch diameter balls, and pat them flat. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with a silicon mat or just sprayed. Bake for 25min for a nice crunch.

I had 17 cookies; one has about 50kcal.
