Weekend Sweets: Low Calorie Pumpkin Cookies (Vegan)

This recipe is really really good and it's low calorie, less than 50 calories per cookie. It's also vegan, which is kind of fun, I'm not vegan or anything, but I appreciate a good vegan recipe, especially for baked goods! Here's where I got the original recipe and I changed it a bit. This recipe makes about 40 cookies. We had some people over the day I made them and the four of us (five if you count Ada) managed to eat all but eight of the cookies. I'd say they were a hit!
1 C canned pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 C applesauce
1 t vanilla
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 C wheat flour
1 C flour
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
dash of ground cloves
dash of ginger
dash of nutmeg

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Mix the first five ingredients (pumpkin, applesauce, vanilla, brown sugar, and sugar) in a bowl until well mixed.

Step 2: Combine the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to the pumpkin mixture. Mix well.

Step 3: At this point, it'll be more of a batter like consistency instead of a cookies dough, but that's ok. Plop cookie sized globs onto a greased cookies sheet and bake at 350 for 18 minutes.
