Healthy Pumpkin Spice Cookies (gluten free)

Happy Friday everyone!

Hope you had a great (cold) week and have fun things planned out for the weekend. Life has been a little busy with school, work, getting ready to move to a new place, and everything else in between! But I can’t complain at all… Life is GREAT!

Anyway, today I want to share with you a new recipe I tried last week and was a total hit (I have done it 3 times already lol). These cookies are protein packed, nutrient-rich, and DELICIOUS!
