- Preheat oven to 350F. And line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl mix together the pumpkin, molasses, vegetable oil, and water.
- In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients stirring until dough forms. (add a little extra water if necessary)
