Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butternut squash, cooked and mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Butternut Squash:
    • Cook the butternut squash until tender. Mash it to a smooth consistency. This forms the heart of our cookie dough.
  2. Create the Cookie Base:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed butternut squash, unsweetened applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir until well blended.
  3. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the old-fashioned oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until a cohesive cookie dough forms. If desired, fold in chopped nuts for an extra crunch.
  5. Preheat and Scoop:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded portions of dough onto a lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. Keep a watchful eye to prevent over-baking.
