Let’s Bake, or Not!

Pop these in the oven, or make a no-bake version.

  1. If baking, preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add nut butter, pumpkin or mashed sweet potato and vanilla. Mix into a batter. If needed, soften the nut butter first to make it easier to stir.
  4. Roll dough into balls, place them on a cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
  5. If baking, put in the oven for 10 minutes. Let them cool for another 10 minutes. They will firm up as they cool.
