Pumpkin is a favorite ingredient for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Many food experts also believe it can lower blood sugar. Here is my favorite pumpkin cookie recipe for all the holidays.
These are heart healthy, diabetic friendly, low calorie and low carb. To make them gluten free use almond flour and almond or coconut milk instead of barley and skim milk.
1/3 cup barley flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/8 cup skim milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup erythritol
1 ounce raisins
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 tablespoon squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup powdered erythritol
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with baking oil.
Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a bowl or food processor.
Place on the cookie sheet a tablespoon at a time and flatten with a fork.
Bake for 12 minutes or until done.
Cool on a wire rack and prepare the glaze
For the glaze combine the grated orange peel, orange juice and erythritol so it can be applied to the cookies with a pastry brush. You may add some red food color to the glaze for a festive touch.
Makes about a dozen cookies
