Healthy Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cookies
We all know this is the season to be adding pumpkin to everything we are making. Other than these Healthy Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cookies, I have been making all kinds of things pumpkin. Like this High Protein Pumpkin Pie Sake, and we also recently made the most moist Pumpkin Bread with chocolate chips and a few others that i will mention later.
Once these Cookies start to bake you will love the aroma coming out of the oven. It will get you drooling. I love glazing these cookies and adding some toasted pecans on top. Oh Yummy!
These Healthy Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cookies can be made vegan if you are looking for a vegan version. Just use vegan protein instead of the whey protein.
The added protein on some of these desserts in honestly for my sake. The more reason for me to over indulge on these healthier dessert options. My kids don’t notice the difference most times which is a bonus!
