Healthy Pumpkin Halloween Cookies

Nothing  says Halloween like pumpkins! These healthy Halloween cookies feature the star of Halloween, PUMPKIN! Whats better, because these cookies use pumpkin puree we are able to skip on eggs and they still hold together nicely! That means that these little pumpkins are vegan, egg free, dairy free, and refined sugar free!

To keep things simple, I like to give the cookies little eyes and a mouth using raisins. This makes them have a slightly ghostly look, especially if you shape the cookies in more of an oval shape (rather than round).

Healthy Halloween pumpkin cookies keep well for a few days in an air-tight container and a little longer if refrigerated. They can be frozen; However the may loose some flavour and texture. So if you do freeze them, you may want to place them in the oven for just a bit to regain the lightly crispy top.
