Pumpkin cookie cake bites

Processed with Snapseed.

I am going pumpkin crazy this autumn and I have been in the kitchen working on all sorts of pumpkin recipes. These started out as cookies but after a few attempts they remained moist and cakey so I am calling them cookie cake bites. They may not have a fancy name but damn are they good. So good that both my roomie and my boyfriend have asked me to make more, and they haven’t stopped eating them. Not a protein bake per say but definitely a clean bake.

Makes 8 cookie cake bites

Ingredients: 

  • 60g Coconut oil
  • 3tbsp Stevia
  • 3 tbsp Pumpkin puree
  • Pinch or a dash of vanilla extract
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 1tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 150g Brown rice flour
  • 30g Dark chocolate chips

Method: 

  1. Prepare a cookie tray and pre-heat your oven to gas mark 5/ 190 degrees.
  2. In a box soften your coconut oil with the back of a wooden spoon, and add in the stevia. Cream coconut oil and stevia together.
  3. Add in the Pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  4. Mix thoroughly and add in the brown rice flour. The mixture should form a soft dough just stiff enough that you can form it in your hands.
  5. Finally adding in the chocolate chips before separating your dough into 8 equal pieces.
  6. Roll the 8 pieces of dough into balls between your palms before flattening slightly creating thick discs.
  7. Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 10 minutes or until slightly browning.
