Macro friendly Pumpkin Chocolate chip cookies!

The problem with a lot of the typical holiday baking recipes is that they are LOADED with sugar and some questionable ingredients. I’ve been searching the web for new recipes to try that are easy on the macros and not full of a bunch of junk and came across this one by Lillie Eats and tells. Its not overly sweet but thats what I like about them! Plus, the pumpkin makes them super moist and the Flapjack baking mix makes them cake like. 

 

 

    • 106 grams of FlapJacked brand buttermilk pancake mix

 

    • 75 grams of Dannon light and fit greek pumpkin yogurt( vanilla works too)

 

    • 1 egg

 

    • 2 tbs sugar

 

    • 180 grams of pumpkin puree 

 

    • 1 tsp cornstarch

 

    • 1 tsp baking powder

 

    • pinch of kosher salt

 

    • 1 tsp cinnamon
