Description

These soft pumpkin cookies are like pillowy clouds that melt in your mouth. They’re loaded with pumpkin flavor, grain-free and made without any oil! Top with frosting for a delicious treat.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (175 grams)
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pumpkin (canned or homemade)
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • vanilla frosting, for piping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Stir together dry ingredients (flours, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and sea salt) in a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix together wet ingredients (eggs, pumpkin, sugar and vanilla) in a separate mixing bowl.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients. The dough will seem really wet for a cookie dough. This is ideal!
  5. Stir in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
  6. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop and place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. Press cookie dough down into a cookie shape with a spoon or your fingers. Cookies won’t spread very much so you can space them about 1 inch apart.

  10. To store: store leftover cookies in a container in the fridge for up to one week.
