Paleo Pumpkin Craisin Cookies

It’s amazing how much the weather dictates my cooking! Today it is rainy and chilly out, so Lyra and I don’t plan on leaving the house (or jammies for that matter) all day!

My hubby roasted some pumpkins this weekend while they are in season. It freezes great, so we keep it in portioned baggies in the freezer for whenever we need a pumpkin fix! It’s great in muffins, smoothies, and these cookies! Don’t have the time to prepare your own pumpkin? No problem! Canned pumpkin works just fine, but make sure you don’t use the seasoned variety.
