It's a cool, blustery day in Florida and perfect for making apple cider and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies but with an all-natural and vegan twist! 

I decided to make hot apple cider in my grandmother's cauldron and vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! 

Hot Apple Cider

Ingredients
  • 12 apples, cored and quartered- can be any kind! I used an array.
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tbsp whole cloves
  •  Half tsp allspice
  •  Pinch of ground ginger
  • 1 sliced orange
Directions

Dump a bunch of apples into a crock pot or cauldron and cook on high for about 4 hours. 

Now lets get to the good stuff......

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients
  •  1 cup whole wheat flour
  •  Half cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •  Half teaspoon baking soda
  •  Half teaspoon sea salt
  •  pinch of ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup stevia
  • Quarter cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • Half tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Quarter cup vegan chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand) 
Directions 

Stir together dry ingredients (flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, sea salt, nutmeg) in a mixing bowl.

Mix together wet ingredients (pumpkin, sugar, coconut oil, flaxseed and vanilla) in a separate mixing bowl.

Combine the two bowls. 

Stir in chocolate chips

Drop rounded tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Press cookie dough down into a cookie shape with a spoon or your fingers. Cookies won’t spread very much so don't worry about spacing.

Bake about 15 min

Snuggle up, watch some football and ENJOY!
