Sugar Detox Pumpkin Cookies (low carb)

During my 21 day sugar detox, I am looking for ways to satisfy my sweet cravings without something sweet and I have found that sometimes just eating something in the form of a cookie is emotional satisfaction and does the job.

The other day I posted a Sugar Detox Cookie Recipe made with almond butter, today I have one made with one of my most favorite things.

Pumpkin!

I actually had some “third-party” testing done on these and they said “these aren’t bad” which is a great testimonial regarding a cookie without ANY form of sugar or grains.

Next time I am going to add some nutmeg and a pinch of salt to see how it tastes, but overall I really am enjoying these. They are quite moist and tasty.

    I think the recipe calls for a pinch of salt. I used pumpkin pie spice. They are really good. I might like to try walnuts in them.

      Yeah I forgot the salt and they were fine, although my testers suggested salt. I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice but I think the walnuts will be a great addition too.

    I am obsessed with all things pumpkin, so I may have to give these ones a try. They look really good.
