Pumpkin CookiesI absolutely love the flavor of pumpkin. You can be pretty sure if something comes in a pumpkin variety I’ll be trying it. And I’m certainly not alone. It seems everyone else likes it too as seasonal items from candy to coffee to English muffins start popping up in delicious variations of pumpkin and spice. And while normally this would excite me, since I’m in prep for NPC Nationals in the hopes of attaining my IFBB Pro Card pretty much all things pumpkin are out of the question.

While preparing for my next competition hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on a few items for after I leave the stage on November 23rd, it has left me craving the signature flavor of fall here and now. It seems that hiding a box of pumpkin Pop Tarts and enjoying a box of pumpkin Pop Tarts are entirely different on the satisfaction scale.

In an effort to quiet my growing desire for all these delicious, yet currently prohibited things I sought to make a friendlier fall treat that wouldn’t ruin all my hard work. With a little bit of creativity, some pumpkin and a healthy dose of Xyience Advance Protein Complex I managed to come up with a recipe to satiate my craving without laying on the guilt.The pumpkin protein oat cookie was born.

The following recipe is quick, easy and contains lots of healthful ingredients. It also manages to be delicately sweet while having containing no added sugar. Delicious, healthy and totally fall-worthy works for this bikini competitor!

Pumpkin Protein Oat Cookies
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops Xyience Advance Protein Complex in Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup egg whites
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

3. Add wet ingredients to dry and incorporate well. Your batter will be sticky; add more coconut flour if too wet or a splash of milk if too dry.

4. Form dough into small balls (about the size of a Ping-Pong ball) and place on greased cookie sheet. Press each slightly flat.

5. Bake for 14-16 minutes until golden brown and firm.

Note: Different protein powders yield different flavors. If using another powder, sweetener may need to be added according to taste. Consider using a natural, calorie free sweetener like stevia or adding a bit of honey.
