Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Apple Cookies

Holidays often feature fun, nostalgic cut-out cookies in seasonal shapes. But between the cookies, icing, and sprinkles, these treats are loaded ingredients that don’t fuel our bodies. This version uses apple cut-outs as the “cookies”, a pumpkin-yogurt “icing”, and OHi Bar “sprinkles” for a much more nourishing, whole-food version. Kids will love cutting out the shapes and decorating the cookies! This recipe makes for a great “snacktivity” any time of the year when cut-out cookies are traditional, and the pumpkin makes them especially appropriate for Halloween and Thanksgiving.


Ingredients

(For two snack-sized portions; scale up or down as needed)

  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp thick, full-fat, plain yogurt of choice
  • ½ tsp maple syrup
  • Generous pinch of cinnamon
  • Very large honeycrisp apple
  • 1 Almond Dark Chocolate OHi Bar

Directions

  1. To make the “icing”, mix the pumpkin puree, yogurt, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
  2. Cut the apple into large, thin slices, each about an eighth of an inch thick.
  3. Dice the OHi Bar into small crumbles.
  4. Using small cookie cutters, cut shapes out of the apple slices.
  5. Spread “icing” on top of each “cookie”, then decorate with the OHi Bar “sprinkles”.

Customize It

  • Keep it vegan by using a plant-based yogurt.
  • Keep it free of added sugar by omitting the maple syrup and by choosing an unsweetened yogurt.
  • Add additional protein by mixing a spoonful of nut butter in with the icing.
  • Change up the cookie cutters! This idea will work great for any season.
  • For a kid-friendly “snacktivity”: adults should cut the apple and the OHi Bar, kids can cut the cookies, spread the icing, and decorate the cookies.
