This a.m. I was in the mood to bake and had a cup of left over pumpkin puree in the fridge that needed to be used. My first thought was pumpkin oatmeal cookies, bejeweled with cranberries. Fortunately I came across this wonderful recipe on the Vegan Yack Attack website. Click here for the original post and recipe. These babies are so full of flavor without any oil, eggs, dairy, nuts or refined sugar. Of course I can’t leave anything alone, so I switched out the whole wheat flour with spelt flour, used date paste (pureed dates and water) as the sweetener, and added an extra pinch of ground clove. Cloves add such a great earthiness and depth. Enjoy!
