Tasty Tuesday's

It's Tasty Tuesday again folks and I got another post for you! If you saw my last TT post, or if you have been following along on my blog with my weight loss journey, you know that I have been on the healthy kick. Though, that doesn't mean I no longer want anything to snack on! I made these yummy cookies, very low fat, and guilt-free!
These are Low fat Pumpkin Oatmeal cookies....

Here is the recipe.
1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/8 tsp. ginger
1 cup rolled oats
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup raisins or dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, blend together first five ingredients. Mix in spices, oats, and baking powder; then fold in flour, raisins or dates, and nuts. Drop cookie dough by tablespoons onto a nonstick cookie sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Yields 2-1/2 dozen cookies.

Now, as that is the recipe, I tweaked it a bit. 

I used Pecans instead of Walnuts. Hubby's Nanny has a pecans on her property (well, the property she used to own, the current owners still allow her to get pecans) and she sends us some every year.

I used Cranberries in place of raisins.

I used Vanilla yogurt, since that is what I had.
I added a small amount of all natural apple sauce.

I used Pumpkin pie spice instead of all the other individual spices. 

Added a touch more cinnamon than it calls for.

Yum and YUM!

So come on over and add yours today!

I'll have to give these a try. I love oatmeal cookies, and love pumpkin, so I should love these, right.

Hate to say it but I'd eat that dough raw-they wouldn't make it to the oven!
