A Pinterest Project - Raw Orange Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Today's Pin: Raw Orange Pumpkin Spice Cookies

The Pin's Source: Addicted to Veggies

The Gist of It All: Pumpkin cookies made with almond flour and dried in the oven.

Hours: 3.5 hours

Modifications: The only modification I had was I used pureed canned pumpkin instead of the fresh shredded pumpkin. I also halved the recipe.

Notable Comments: There is something strange about the texture of almond flour. I am desperate to acquire a taste for it, as it has so many health benefits but blah. I'm beginning to think I need to half the almond flour with whole wheat flour... I'm trying almond flour cold turkey and it's just not working.

Anyway, my cookies look NOTHING like the author's and again, the texture is just gaggie. The flavor is good although I would leave out the orange zest next time. I love pumpkin flavor and the orange just masks the pumpkin... not good when pumpkin is the draw. And I must say this picture actually makes the cookies look appetizing. They almost have a peanut butter sugary look to them but this is very misleading.
