  3. Add the butter to the mixed dry ingredients and stir well. The mixture should look like wet sand before adding any pumpkin. Note: If your dough looks more like the photo in the next step (more moist), skip the pumpkin or add just enough to hydrate the cookie dough.)

  4. Add the pumpkin and stir/fold the cookie dough until it takes shape. It should be solid like cookie dough at this point and easily handled.

Recipe Notes

*Because food safety experts are party poopers, I felt the need to mention the risk of consuming raw flour. Since ingredients in flour can be contaminated before, during, or after processing, consume raw flour at your own risk. If you'd like to replace the flour, something like ground nuts would work. Check out my no bake white chocolate pistachio protein bites for an example of this.

  • Different protein powders may have different volumes per scoop. Weigh your protein powder if possible. They may also have different consistencies based on ingredients so add liquid ingredients slowly to avoid runny/gummy cookie dough.
  • If you wanted to omit the pumpkin, you could add a bit more butter or use something like unsweetened apple sauce to hydrate the cookie dough. 
  • Any granular sugar substitute like stevia or splenda should work fine. 
  • For the brown sugar substitute, a 1/2 tablespoon of real brown sugar wouldn't add that many calories.
