Pumpkin Spice Cookies

· Blog

Bill wanted to make a whole food plant based dessert celebrating Thanksgiving and the result is an amazing dessert made from whole food ingredients that would make a great meal: yams, sweet potato, almonds, dates and rolled oats. All that in a cookie! No wonder we feel so good when we eat them.

He takes us through all the easy steps in the video.

Easy, peasy to make and you will love the result.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebration. We encourage lots of veggies in your meal. Try our Stuffed Squash, or our delicious Raw Cranberry Sauce. You might also like our Mushroom Gravy on your mashed potatoes, and you can mash your potatoes with our homemade Almond Milk if you want to go dairy free. You'll be amazed how delicious and rich this makes them.

We feel the most important food at these celebrations is cooked dark leafy greens. Anti-inflammatory, chock full of antioxidants and other essential nutrients, we always include kale or collards or Bok Choy to bring the high nutrient greens into the meal. You might enjoy our Greens with Carrots & Peppers.

And what makes Thanksgiving the best for us is when we remind ourselves of all that we're grateful for. There is such bounty in our lives!

To Your Amazing Health,

Connie and Bill
