My daughter, Grace, has been on a mission to create simple, delicious and healthy treats. These little cake-like cookies are only 40 calories a piece when they’re unfrosted, and they’re mostly sweetened with healthful stevia.

You can ice them with a simple powdered sugar icing (as shown above) or you could just dust them with powdered sugar instead. Either way, they’re delicious!

Yield- 12 to 15 cookies

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup granulated stevia

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup canned pumpkin

1 egg white

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup all purpose flour (you can use gluten free all purpose flour, if you like)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

In a large mixing bowl, combine: butter, stevia, brown sugar, pumpkin, egg white and vanilla. Mix well.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine: flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes, or just until set. They’re done when a toothpick inserted into the center of a cookie comes clean.

Cool completely and ice or dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

To make a simple icing: Combine 1 cup powdered sugar with a couple teaspoons of milk. Add a little more if needed, until the icing is the desired consistency. Add a drop of orange food coloring to the icing, if you wish.

Enjoy!
