These cookies rocked my world… I started with a recipe that I found online at http://www.puertoricanfitchick.com, and then I added and subtracted a few things. The beauty is that the nutritional content is so clean that I ate one for breakfast, one after my workout, and then I returned and had one for dessert as well. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

**This recipe makes 6 cookies**

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup old-fashioned oats

8 Tbsp pure pumpkin

1/4 cup raisins or reduced sugar craisins

stevia, and cinnamon to taste

sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice

2 tsp of baking powder

PROTEIN ICING

4 Tbsp fat-free cream cheese OR plain 0% fat Greek yogurt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Dash of sugar free vanilla coffee syrup (I use Torani brand)

INSTRUCTIONS:
(1) Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients for cookies in a large mixing bowl.
(2) Line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a Silpat. Using a 1/4 size measuring cup, scoop out cookies onto a baking sheet. Use your hands to mold them into cookie shape and press them down slightly to flatten them a little.
(3) Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
(4) While cookies are baking, put frosting ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture until it has the consistency of frosting.
(5) After cookies have cooled, smear frosting on and decorate with one walnut. DEVOUR!
