This recipe was created after I went to make the recipe I told my kids about the night before, only to find out that I was minus about three of the most important ingredients. Not to worry! I decided to wing it with what we had in the pantry, and they were still a big hit!
The nice thing about this recipe is that you can change it up how you want. Sub oats for the hemp hearts, sub nut butter and almond meal for coconut butter and coconut flour. Add raisins, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, anything you like. Sub mashed banana for the pumpkin. Have fun with it! They are grain, gluten, and dairy-free in my version. Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Cookies!
