Here is a variation on the No-bake Chewy Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies, this time I use pumpkins and it is just as delicious.
3 cups quick oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dates
2/3 cup canned pumpkin pur with no added sugar
4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
optional: 1 cup mini chocolate chips, raisins, dried fruit or nuts
Place 1/2 cup of the quick oats in the food processor and turn on high until a powder forms. To this, add the dates and process until smooth.
Mix this into a large bowl with the remaining ingredients. Once fully incorporated, form into balls or roll the mixture out and use cookie cutters to make different shapes. Allow it to firm up in the regrigerator for an hour or so.
1 package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup honey
Mix together the ingredients and frost the cookies.
