This was my view on  one of my late morning run.  It was about 5 fahrenheit (-17 Celcius), and with a breeze. I am so glad that it is “dry” up here, and not wet like on the coast. That would be a killer. The snow is sticking, and it looks like I can take out my snow shoes here soon. My cardio and stamina def. gonna be better this season due to me not being pregnant this time around 🙂 20131106_134409#1

If you don’t know this already I work out  quit a bit. I do love to workout, I always have. Fitness, and health is two things that is very important to me.  That is one of the reasons I came up with this blog. Now I am considering switching names on my blog. “Alternativeeating” can mean so many things. Any ideas? I of course have a couple of them lined up in my head. We’ll see. But enough said, back to why you actually dropped by my page. Thank you! For checking out my blog, do feel free to look around. Look at the articles, recipes and maybe peak into some workouts.

Back to the recipe, I made these “Christmas  pumpkin cookies” a while back. This is a different version of them:

This recipe makes about 30 cookies:

1  3/4 cups ( 5 dl) cooked pumpkin ( or canned)

2 tbsp melted ghee ( coconut oil, or any other oil of your choice works too)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup (2.5 dl) almond milk

4 tbsp blackstrap molasses

4 cups (10 dl/ 1 l) spelt flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cream of tartar (optional)

1/2 tsp ginger

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp nutmeg

3 tsp chia seeds

I like using products that are from family businesses, organic and give back to the communities.

The cookies are excellent by them selfs, but also very good with frosting.
