It’s all the goodness from a grain-free, gluten-free, flourless dairy-free, and vegan chocolate chip cookie with the beautiful addition of pumpkin and all it’s wonderful spices that compliment it.

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon organic cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon organic ground cloves
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand)
  • 1/2 cup organic walnut pieces

Directions

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.

Enjoy!

    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 ;)
