Homemade Clean Eating Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Homemade Clean Eating Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

So we’ve been busy packing and selling for our big move across the country this month. The house is wreck, but things are selling fast and the house is starting to look cleaner and cleaner by the day. Getting rid of all of our stuff has been pretty hard, especially for our 4 year old, but honestly, it’s been more of a weight off of our shoulders the more that leaves our home.

And one bonus has been that we now have the money to pay for our moving trip. I’ve made enough to pay for the moving van, the gas and food, and even hotel stays along the way. Being that this trip was a surprise, we didn’t have the money saved up for it. But now not only are we lighter on a bunch of stuff we didn’t need and weren’t using, but our trip has been funded in the process. It’s been a good, mind (and house) clearing process for all of us.

But one thing that most people may not think of, is that I’ve also have to clean out our two garage freezers full of all of the good deals I’ve found to stock up on over the months we’ve lived here. So I’ve had to find all sorts of creative ways to use all of the food. One thing I found was a bunch of frozen pureed pumpkin, and I immediately got excited about making some pumpkin spice banana bread and some pumpkin spice cookies. Yum! I know it’s not the fall season anymore, but boy would these both make great fall recipes when pumpkin is available.

I’m so glad I made them too! Both recipes have been amazing. Apparently they are just what we needed too, because they were gone in just a couple of days. It’s really too bad I didn’t find even more. Now to figure out how to get rid of a bunch of frozen fruit in a delicious way. Let me show you how I pulled these amazing cookies together so you can enjoy them too!
