Pumpkin Cookies

I love  challenging myself to try new things in the kitchen.
I started with my first vegan cookies and jumped with joy when they turned out edible.
I gained a little more confidence with every vegan recipe I developed in the last couple of months. I even did a woogie boogie dance after my three apple bread challenge.
With the endless recipes all over the internet is hard to get bored in the kitchen. There are always new techniques to learn, new ingredients to experiment with.
Few weeks ago Carolynasked me to write a guest post for her. I was blown away after I read here mail.
Carolyn is one of my all-time favorite bloggers. She’s been so supportive since I start blogging and even if I had no idea what a blog actually is she kept coming back leaving me encouraging comments.

As time approached I was getting cold feet about my guest post. Looking at Carolyn wonderful blog and … mine … well, the difference is pretty obvious. Almost all her recipes are low-carb and/or gluten-free, mine – not even close.
Although Carolyn gave me free hand at picking the recipe I didn’t want to step out of her blog theme and challenged myself to a low-carb and gluten-free cookie recipe.
Can you believe these cookies have only 7 gr of carbs each?!?

Despite the cracked surface the inside is soft, slightly sweet, the spices enhancing the pumpkin flavor.  It is a perfect bite in the morning with a cup of steaming coffee/tea or even as a sweet treat in the lunch box
 Follow me to Carolyn’s blog to get the entire recipe and congratulate her for the upcoming book. She’s soon to be a cookbook author! I was so happy for her!
Thank you all for being here today. Hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend.
Sending you lots of love,

    Look at how awesome those look! Wow- simply amazing. I love that they are vegan too. It amazes me what you don't have to use when baking and yet you still get the same great flavor! Love this

    I saw your recipe on Carolyn's blog and hopped over here – terrific guest post – these cookies are so pretty, love the pink bow.

    I've always been wary of baking vegan and gluten free; I find great comfort in my butter, eggs and flour. But more and more I seem to have friends going vegan or restricting their income of gluten – I need to get on this! These cookies look amazing, and might be my first try at vegan baking. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I love a cookie with a crackly outside and soft inside. These sound amazing and it's always comforting to have a blogger or blogger(s) who are constantly encouraging and supportive. I see the kitchen as a playground meant to be messed with. Ha. Heading over to Carolyn's site now! Congrats on Top 9!
