Ingredients:


1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (whey or plant-based)

1/2 cup almond flour

1/4 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter

1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (adjust sweetness to your liking)

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

A pinch of salt

Dark chocolate chips or raisins for decoration (for Halloween-themed faces)


Instructions:


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the canned pumpkin puree, peanut butter (or almond butter), honey (or maple syrup), and vanilla extract. Mix well until smooth.


In a separate bowl, whisk together the protein powder, almond flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.


Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until a thick cookie dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more almond flour.


Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a fork.


To create Halloween-themed faces, press dark chocolate chips or raisins into the cookie dough to make eyes, noses, and mouths.


Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the cookies are firm to the touch.


Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Once the cookies are completely cool, you can store them in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy your healthy Halloween high-protein pumpkin cookies!


These cookies are not only delicious but also pack a good amount of protein from the protein powder, almond flour, and peanut butter. Plus, they're perfect for Halloween with their cute, spooky faces!
