Actually I like to call this a Mookie.

Mookie you ask?  That means not quite a cookie, and not quite a muffin.  That would be the best thing to describe this creation!  Whatever you want to call it, its a great & quick snack that pairs perfectly well with a protein shake!

Easy Microwave Pumpkin Cookies (aka Mookie)

Makes 8 cookies

3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix (if your not gluten free, you could use whatever whole grain pancake mix you’ve got)
2 Tbsp liquid egg whites (or 1 large egg white)
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch ground ginger
Pinch nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 packets stevia
2 Tbsp coconut palm sugar (or sucanat, or dark brown sugar)

Mix all ingredients together into a dough.  Line a microwave safe plate with parchment paper.  Drop cookies by tablespoon onto plate (4 at a time, so you’ll do 2 batches).  Microwave for 90 seconds until they are puffed and dry.  They will be slightly chewy, moist, with a muffin type texture.

    Can you make these with all purpose flour instead of pancake mix? I don’t usually buy it already mixed so I’m not certain what the difference is.

      If they came out too hard, you cooked them too long. Your microwave might be stronger….just drop the cooking time. This recipe is tough. Microwaves aren’t like ovens….the cooking time can vary greatly.
