Pumpkin Cookies For Halloween!
Pumpkin Cookies for Halloween

By Jonathan Galland

Pumpkin CookiesTo celebrate Halloween, we wanted to share with our newsletter readers a holiday treat—Pumpkin Cookies.

This recipe is from Dr. Galland’s book on children’s nutrition titled Superimmunity for Kids. This book is a favorite of parents who are looking for ways to get good nutrition for their families. The whole idea of Superimmunity for Kids is to provide recipes that contain superfoods that children of all ages need. And these pumpkin cookies are kid-tested: they won rave reviews at my brother’s Halloween party.


Pumpkin Cookies
2 eggs
3 ounces apple juice concentrate
3 ounces orange juice concentrate
2 tablespoons yogurt
1 1/2 cups pumpkin, either cooked fresh or canned, with no additives
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup raisins
1 cup seeds or nuts, such as pumpkin or sunflower, or chopped nuts, such as walnuts
½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, to coat the pan

Preheat the oven to 375 F., and lightly coat two cookie sheets with oil. Put the eggs, juice concentrates, yogurt and pumpkin in a blender and puree well. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients, and then add the wet ingredients from the blender. Stir just until combined, but don’t over mix.

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the lightly oiled cookie sheets. These cookies don’t spread when baked, so shape the dough as you wish.

Bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes at 375 F., or until cooked through and nicely browned. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on a rack.

Superimmunity for Kids explains to parents how to feed their children so they can stay healthy, maintain peak disease-fighting capacity, and conquer illness most efficiently. Using optimum nutrition and selected supplements, this unique program provides special requirements for infants, toddlers, school-age kids, and teens.
