- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (I use aluminum free)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- dash ground allspice
- dash ground nutmeg
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/8 cup applesauce
- 1/8 cup pure maple syrup
- preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a baking sheet with spray
- whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg in large bowl
- in a separate bowl whisk together eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, and maple syrup until thoroughly combined
- stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until thoroughly combined
- scoop out tablespoons of mixture onto baking sheet, making sure to leave about an inch between each
- bake for 10-12 minutes and enjoy!
The whole wheat flour in this recipe give you lots of whole grain goodness, the pumpkin is a stellar vitamin A source, and with the use of applesauce instead of oil, the amount of fat in these mookies are almost undetectable (about 2 grams per mookie). Hooray for healthy baked goods!
New York City Marathon
I ran this race three years ago and watching it today seriously makes me teary eyed! It was hands down one of the coolest experiences of my life and I can only hope I get to do it again one day. I had placed so many expectations on this race in terms of its general awesomeness (not my time) and it without a doubt met, and even exceeded, all of them. All you runners out there, put this on your running bucket list. It is a must do!!!
Question of the Day: Runners and non-runners, what is the best race/fitness/athletic related experience you have had?
