Just a quick post of my BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient) recipe entry …


Pumpkin Walnut Oatmeal Cookies




This week’s secret ingredient is walnuts and was selected by the fabulous Amy, over at coffee talk.  Great choice, Amy!  Walnuts are not only delicious, they are also very healthy, as they are an excellent source of the important omega-3 essential fatty acid.

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (I was excited to use the leftover roasted sugar pumpkin puree I had from my Thanksgiving pie!!)
  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup demerara sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I used 1/2 cup spelt flour and 1 cup AP flour)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together the pumpkin, egg whites, vanilla and both sugars; set aside.  In another bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, soda, nutmeg and ginger.  Mix together at low speed until well blended; stir in oats and walnuts.  Drop by the spoonful onto a sprayed baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes, until bottoms are browned.  Cool on a wire rack.

Think I will go sample another … enjoy!
