While on my Advocare 10 day cleanse, I was having a major craving for something sweet, cookies in particular. As far as the cleanse goes, white flours and sugar are off limits! So, I had to get a little creative. I made these simple drop cookies and even incorporated the chocolate Advocare Meal Replacement shake (my favorite flavor).
I wasn’t too sure how they would be with no sugar in them, but they were surprisingly delightful, and the sweetness from the raisins popped through. A yummy healthy treat and even my boys gobbled them up, one after the other and I didn’t stop them. Why stop a good thing?
Ingredients: 1 cup pumpkin puree; 1/4 cup applesauce; 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; 1 egg; 1/4 cup protein powder (1 pouch AdvoCare chocolate shake); 1 tablespoon molasses; 2 cups rolled oats; 1/2 cup raisins; 1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)
In a medium bowl add in your wet ingredients: molasses, egg, apple sauce, vanilla and optional honey. Mix well.
Then add in the spices: cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
Add in the pumpkin and rolled oats, mix well.
Add in the AdvoCare Shake.
And lastly gently stir in the raisins.
Drop a large spoonful of cookie onto a greased (or silpat) cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° for about 15-20 minutes.
Deliciously healthy and packed with protein.
*did I mention I got that platter at a garage sale for $1 and its a Nambé *
