Oatmeal Cookie Day!

So, apparently today is national oatmeal cookie day. We have one of those, maybe two.. I've noticed some of these things wind up with duplicates because someone wasn't paying attention.. anyway, as luck would have it, I've been planning on trying to come up with a cookie recipe to use up some of our supply if bottled carrots. They made such lovely dog cookies that they really just needed a wee bit of tweaking to make decent people cookies.
So here is my first ever attempt at cookie recipe creation. It might go through some refinements over the next few months, but it's a pretty good start, and it's pretty simple.

Oatmeal Carrot Pumpkin Cookies

3/4 c pureed carrots
3/4 c canned pumpkin or home made pumpkin puree
1 c certified gluten free oats (I am using Bob's Red Mill brand)
1 egg
1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients and mix well, adding chocolate chips last.

Drop by spoonfuls onto your baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes

Remove to a wire rack or plate and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container, refrigerator or freezer.
