3 little pumpkins...
...sitting on a gate.
I love making raw food recipes for our snacks. Most of the time I just wing it and that's exactly what I was doing when I came up with these. Luckily for you I was taking notes, because these are good. Remember all the fresh apple juice we made for the pumpkin soup? Well, waste not, want not. We put the "juicer poop" to use here in these cookies. I was going to call them pumpkin cookies, but since they use apples, pumpkins and cranberries...I thought Autumn Cookies was more appropriate, not to mention fair to said apples and cranberries, eh?
Raw Autumn Cookies
1 cup (packed) fresh apple juice pulp
1 cup (packed) fresh raw pumpkin (peeled, seeded and grated)
1 cup oat groats (finely ground into flour)
1 cup flax seeds (finely ground)
1/2 cup walnuts (chopped fine)
10 medjool dates, pitted and soaked for at least 30 min. Then drain and chop/mash them depending on how soft they are
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
Throw it all together in a large mixing bowl and mix it with your hands. I recommend using your hands because 1) it's fun 2) you can really make sure everything is incorporated well.
Then using your hands grab about 2 tbs worth of "dough" and form them into patties like so:
