Healthy Flourless Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

 Flourless Chocolate Pumpkin Cookie Recipe

Oh, how I love the Fall! Especially for all of the delicious harvest treats. Here is a recipe I found on Pinterest for Flourless Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies - simply delightful and healthy!

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all ingredients, except the chocolate chips in the food processor. Once smooth, add in the chocolate chips and pulse a few times to mix them.
  • Place the food processor container in the fridge so the mixture can firm up a bit. About 10 minutes.
  • Once the mixture is firm enough to scoop, drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet. I used a cookie scoop for my cookies.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Wait until the cookies are completely cooled before transferring them to an airtight container.
These cookies are soft with a fudge-like texture. Store them in the fridge. They should last a week. You may also be able to freeze them, but I haven't tried. Enjoy!

Best Multifunction Blenders for Everything Kitchen Prep

Having a multifunction blender in the kitchen can be like having an extra pair of hands to help chop, mix, blend, and puree your gourmet dishes with ease. Fresh homemade pineapple salsas are some of my most favorite things to make in my blender.

Surprisingly, many of these blenders are not as expensive as you might think. They are also really easy to use, and generally come with all of the bells and whistles to start using them right out of the box.

Here are some of the best multifunction blenders I could find:

Cast Iron Enameled Dutch Ovens for Hearty Meals

Now that the weather is changing, I find myself wanting to make more hearty stews for my family. I don't like to rely on a crockpot all of the time as I like the taste of food that has been prepared in a dutch oven. It really reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen in the cold winter of Detroit. We couldn't wait to get to her house for a delicious pot roast meal.

Here are some really cool modern styles of cast iron enameled dutch ovens for making stews, soups, pot roasts and more!
