Pumpkin Spice Collagen Cookies with a Coconut Butter Glaze
(makes 8 cookies)
For the cookies
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup almond flour
2 scoops vanilla or unflavored collagen powder
½ cup ground flaxseed
½ cup chopped mixed nuts
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice seasoning
¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
5 drops stevia or 1 teaspoon honey
Preheat oven to 375.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Divide mixture into 8 balls, and press them down gently onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside but soft in the middle.
For the glaze
3 tablespoons coconut butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Melt the coconut butter and oil together in a double boiler until melted. Once the cookies have cooled dip the tops into the mixture, then leave to set in the refrigerator or freezer.
