10 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Cut open your pumpkin, remove the skin and all that and chop. You’ll need two cups of pumpkin cut into small pieces that you’ll then place on a cookie sheet and pop into the oven set to broil for 15 minutes.

  • Put the date puree, plain yogurt, egg and vanilla extract into a bowl and stir until well combined. (hahaha! Now that has just got to be the most clichéd direction when following a recipe… haha!)

  • Add the salt, baking soda and baking powder (aka magic powder as it says on the label). Like with all the recipes, you should see little bubbles appear. Then it’s time to spice things up by adding the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

  • Now mix everything together and, while you’re waiting to take the pumpkin pieces out of the oven, you’ll have time to zest the orange and add the fruit of your labour to the bowl.

  • Next, add the pieces of cooked pumpkin to the dough and mix thoroughly. Fold in the flour, quick oats and flax seeds…. Then what? Take a wild guess. Yup, stir again!

  • Lastly, mix in the shelled pumpkin seeds and chocolate chips and that’s it, your pumpkin cookie dough is done.

  • Grab your parchment paper or silicone baking mat and line the cookie sheet. IF YOU DON’T, EVERYTHING WILL STICK. How come? It’s simple, there’s NO FAT WHATSOVER IN THIS RECIPE.

  • Using two teaspoons, drop the cookie dough onto the sheet. As a finishing touch, you can pop a little slice of pumpkin skin on top… for an extra dose of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo-ness!*

  • Bake for 15 minutes. Watch out! There’s a wonderful aroma of pumpkin spice heading your way! Yum-yum!
