So, this is a joke, right? It's not really Monday. I would like to have a little chat with whoever decided working 5 days and having 2 off was a good idea. Because it's not. I'm way more in to the 4 day work week like last week and the week before, but I guess it's back to the grind as usual! Anyway, one good thing that came of this quick weekend were these awesome butternut squash cookies. B's cousin gave me this recipe, and since she eats gluten free I only had to make a couple changes to clean them up a bit... Thanks Molly!
2 cups oat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup Stevia
1/3 cup no sugar added apple sauce
2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
1 cup cooked butternut squash (I'm lazy and just bought the pre cut bag and microwaved)
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Place all ingredients except nuts into mixer and mix well.
3. Add nuts and slowly fold into cookie dough.
4. Place cookie dough on prepared baking sheet one tablespoon at a time.
5. Bake for 15 minutes, let cool before serving.
They came out perfectly and are great because they're not too sweet yet still totally satisfy sweet cravings. Yes, that is possible. :)
