Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Flourless and Dairy-Free) The Healthy Family and Home


  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil (melted/liquid)
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand)
  • 1/2 cup organic walnut pieces


Step 1 Add all ingredients in a medium size bowl and stir until well combined.

Scoop about a tablespoon at a time, roll into a ball in the palm of your hand (using slightly moistened hands to prevent sticking), gently pat them down flat and then put them on a baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 - 15 minutes watching them closely so they don't overcook and burn.

Let them sit in the baking pan until completely cool before removing them.

    I just tried this recipe and while it tastes delicious, the cookies didn’t congeal very well since I didn’t have coconut flour. So yummy though!

      Hi Aly! I just happened to make a batch this morning and made a few adjustments to the recipe (I’ve updated it in the post) and eliminated the coconut flour all together.

      I added a little more almond flour and they held together great.

      I hope you give them another try with the revisions. Thanks so much for the feedback ;)
