Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies & Pumpkin Bread

I wanted to use up the can of pumpkin puree I used for the Pumpkin and Shiitake Risotto with Crispy Sage so I made two treats this past weekend, both Happy Herbivore recipes.

The first was Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies (recipe here; I omitted the raisins). I've made these before and love them. They have a great pumpkin spice taste and are moist and, with more than 2.5 grams of protein in a cookie, are also filling. Most of the batch is in my freezer to tide me over this fall until I start my holiday cookie baking.

I also made the Pumpkin Bread (recipe here), which I hadn't made before. It was also super quick to mix, and the bread turned out really moist and delicious. I've been eating it for breakfast spread with peanut butter.
