Pumpkin Spice Pecan Cookies (Paleo)

Posted by in Desserts

Some things are just meant for each other . . . autumn and pumpkin spice, milk and cookies. This recipe combines all of the above into one delicious treat! 

While making my pumpkin spice pecan milk for the first time, I realized the left over pulp resembled a dough. Inspired by this fun discovery, I experimented by adding a few additional ingredients, and voilĂ ! These yummy cookies were born. They are quite simple to make, and you’ll feel good about letting no pulp go to waste! Celebrate the autumn season by enjoying this milk and pumpkin spice cookie combo.

A little disclaimer: I made my nut milk with a regular blender. I don’t know what this pulp would be like had I used a high speed blender like a Vitamix. You’ll have to let me know how that works, if that’s what you decide to use.
