I used my left over almond pulp from making almond milk to make these cookies! Instead of dehydrating the pulp into a flour, I left it moist in for this recipe. It’s also a super easy recipe because all of the measurements use a tablespoon!

I had an acorn squash lying around waiting to be used up, so I decided to try something a little different with it tonight! Success! These cookies were delish! Rich, sweet molasses with moist, roasted squash and crunchy, toasted pecans…perfect fall cookies! Super healthy and low cal as well because they are basically just protein powder, molasses and acorn squash! Easy peasy.

1⃣Clean and pierce holes with a fork into an acorn squash and microwave for 3 min.
2⃣Slice in half, place cut side up in a loaf pan and drizzle 1t of molasses on each half. Roast at 375F for 10min or until completely soft
3⃣Let cool then scoop out squash from the skin and place in a food processor. Blend until smooth with:
🔹1/8-1/4Molasses (start with 1/8 and add more as desired)
🔹1t Vanilla extract
🔹1 Egg
🔹1/4c Coconut oil
4⃣Then add in to achieve a dough-like consistency:

🔹3c Oat flour
🔹1/4c Coconut flour
🔹2t Baking powder
🔹*Cinnamon-8 shakes
🔹*Ground ginger-4 shakes
🔹*Ground cloves-4 shakes

*I added the spices to taste. I put more cinnamon and salt than the others though
5⃣Stir in 1/2c chopped pecans that have been dry toast in a pan and drop scoops of the dough onto a pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375F for 7-8mins. Remove and place on a cooling rack

I’m on a mission to make a gooey center cookie. This one was not gooey in the center but it WAS super moist, even this morning when I tried one out of the fridge, it was still moist! The secret is avocado, it keeps it moist and light (but not gooey). Still a protein cookie success because they were chocolatey and sweet, not dry and hard like protein cookies can become. These are definitely worth the make though, easy and yummy!

This recipe is dedicated to my mother. My favorite cookie growing up was her butter rum cookies. She didn’t make them very often, but when she did I would eat a ton of them. They were a sweet, soft cookie with a butter pecan, rum topping…so, so yummy. That is where this recipe is inspired from and I think I achieved no-bake protein cookie greatness!
