    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together sweetener, oats, wholemeal flour, soya flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in pumpkin puree, rapeseed oil, water, egg whites and black treacle. Stir in linseed, if desired. Roll into 14 large balls and flatten on a baking tray.
    3. Bake for 5 minutes in preheated oven. DO NOT OVERBAKE: the cookies will come out really dry if overbaked.
