Raw Pumpkin Spice Cookies!

It is pumpkin time! Those beautiful orange globes that light up the halloween season are also very high on the “good for you” scale!



Pumpkins are full of caroteniods, a pigment which helps protect your cells from the damage of free radicals, are full of vitamin A, and enhance your imune system. They are also a great source of fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and zinc. They are anti-inflammatory and can help protect your joints from arthritis. Pumpkin is said to help with depression and in some cultures, is used to fight intestinal bugs. On top of everything else, pumpkin is a natural diuretic and helps with flushing out toxins.

When you take all of that into consideration, not only should we be carving them, we should be eating them! You want to make sure you buy a pumpkin that is a “cooking” pumpkin. The typical jack-o-lantern is not very good to eat. Sugar pumpkins (pictured above) are great. If you aren’t sure, just ask your grocer or pumpkin patch owner!



Today I have a tasty  cookie recipe for you that stars pumpkin as the main ingredient! Bursting with flavor, and high in nutrients, it is the perfect after-school snack for kids and a great treat for adults, too!

    What would this be like without dehydration?

    Hello Susan, thank you for the recipe. Do you know how long you can store these cookies at room temperature? Thank you, best regards, Joeke

      Hi, Joeke, I think for around 5 days. Cheers!

    Just wondering if you could use canned organic pumpkin?
    I am relatively new to eating raw…Thankful I found your site!
    Thank you very much!

      Canned organic pumpkin is cooked. So if you want raw, it isn’t. It will also have a lot more moisture in it and will throw off the other ingredients. Cheers!

    Hello, I’m not a fan of coconut. What could I replace it with?

    115 is it F or C?

      Hi, Tatsiana, In the U.S. we use Fahrenheit. I hope that helps!

    I was wondering if the 10 hours after the first hour was actually suppose to be just 1 hour and the 0 was just a typo. 10 hours seems like a lot…

      You are dehydrating at 115 degrees. Dehydration takes a lot of time. The numbers are correct. Yours might be done in 6 – 8 hours. Check as you go. Cheers!
