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
- 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
- Prepare a cookie tray and pre-heat your oven to gas mark 5/ 190 degrees.
- 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.
- Add in the Pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
- 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.
- Finally adding in the chocolate chips before separating your dough into 8 equal pieces.
- Roll the 8 pieces of dough into balls between your palms before flattening slightly creating thick discs.
- Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 10 minutes or until slightly browning.
