Cookies? on a fatloss plan?....sure!

Today is shaping up to be one of those days when you just feel so on! I had a great legs and tri's workout and followed it up with a cycle class by one of my favorite instructors ;o)

At times  we all get cravings and there are times when you are able to fight them and they pass. There are also times when we just give in and then feel bad by messing up our "diet". Well here are some cookies that i made that are lightened up and very tasty! When i get to the point where it's eat something i really shouldn't or become miserable, i get in the kitchen and find ways to make my favorite meals/treats more waist friendly.

Pumpkin oatmeal walnut cookies

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup almond flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
stevia to taste
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/4 cup honey (optional)
2 teaspoons water
2 egg whites
1/3 cup walnuts (or nut of choice)

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees. spray baking sheet with non-stick cookie spray
2. in a large bowl mix all ingredients
3.a half tablespoon of mixture for each cookie on cookie sheet
4. bake 15-20 mins
be careful to not overbake or cookies will dry out!



  1. This looks like a great recipe! Can you substitute whole wheat flour for almond flour?
