I’ve been coming to Vermont almost every summer since 2006 because I wished to study in person with my spiritual teacher, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo. Venerable started the Sunray Meditation Society and established the Peace Village where I’ve been camping each summer. This year, I was guided to move here and rent a home.

During this time of Covid, I’ve been experimenting with oatmeal cookies because they’re Venerable’s favorite.

I have been working on a recipe I’m pretty happy with that is delicious!

My goal was to find a recipe that was gluten free, vegan and non-fat – and I think I’ve come up with one!

Pumpkin Ginger Oatmeal Cookies

1 can pumpkin
1 1/3 cup Monk Fruit
1 T cinnamon
1 t vanilla
Dash of salt
1/2 cup minced fresh ginger
2 T flax meal

Mix all that together then add:
3 1/3 cups oats

I let it set for a while as the pumpkin is quite wet and the oats will absorb the juices and I feel it makes better cookies.

You can add raisins and nuts as you like, use less ginger, omit the flax, use sugar instead of monk fruit if you prefer. These are flexible.

You can also make them with 4 super ripe bananas instead of the pumpkin. I just prefer the pumpkin.

Form the dough into normal cookie size patties and bake on a baking sheet – I use parchment or silicone baking sheet – no fat needed at all.

10 minutes at 350

Once baked, I store them in the fridge because they’re a bit damp – it just depends on how soon you’ll eat them. I keep them in the fridge and then toast them in the toaster oven and have a few for breakfast – they’re chewy and very satisfying.

Two make a great snack with coffee.

I haven’t tried with nutmeg, allspice etc. I’m sure pumpkin pie spice would be a nice change from just the cinnamon and vanilla. If you like turmeric, you might try that as well. Fresh or powdered.

Please let me know if you try them!

I order Monk Fruit from Amazon – it measures exactly like sugar – tests better (to me) than sugar. Click here to order the brand I’ve been using: Organic Monk Fruit – granulated.

Monk fruit has a surprising number of benefits which you can read about here by clicking here: Monk Fruit Benefits.
