Pumpkin Protein Cookies

In honor of cooking and baking with lots of pumpkin lately, I’ve created these tasty, healthier variety of cookies using whey protein.  They were moist and delicious and so pumpkiny! I used Metabolic Nutrition’s Protozyme Whey in Vanilla Cake, but you can use any vanilla whey you have.

Feels like fall, even Phoenix thinks so!
