Fall Challenge #4- Pumpkin Cookies

The dessert recipe for the week was these amazing low-fat, low-calorie (42!) pumpkin cookies. These are amazing and taste more like little muffins. They are incredibly moist, do not require any butter or eggs, and do they smell good!! 

Original source

Skinny Pumpkin Cookies
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
1 teaspoon of almond extract (you can use vanilla if you prefer)
1 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie  mix)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Cream sugars, applesauce, pumpkin and almond extract together.

In another bowl, mix flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spice. Once mixed, add to the wet ingredients.
Form little blobs and bake for 15 – 18 minutes, or until browned.

Incredibly easy and incredibly delicious! Ok, here are the pictures.

Can you tell I like my red spoon?
