To be honest, I  haven’t been feeling too excited for the holidays. But with all the vegan foodies on Instagram sharing such beautifully crafted recipes to fit the season, I could’t help but join.

So I sure hope you’re enjoying all fall-inspired recipes. I think this is already my 5th! (plus, more to come….obviously)

After sharing a recipe for pumpkin bread,  and pumpkin spice pancakes, here’s a another pumpkin-y recipe, but this time, COOKIES!!

What’s great about this recipe, is that it only require one bowl and just about 30 minutes to whip up!! (a.k.a. my kind of recipe)

I’ll be upfront and tell you these aren’t the healthiest as they require vegan butter and a good amount of sugar, but they are a great treat for when looking to please the non-vegan crowd at parties or gatherings. I’ll definitely be sharing more oil-free/hclf/raw vegan recipes soon, as I know many of us (including myself) enjoy eating that way!!

Wishing you a Happy Halloween (whether you be celebrating or not) and a lovely rest of your day!!

Cheers,
