  • 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)


  • Prep: Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Mix dry ingredients: Stir together dry ingredients (flours, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and sea salt) in a mixing bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients: Mix together wet ingredients (eggs, pumpkin, sugar and vanilla) in a separate mixing bowl.
  • Combine: Combine wet and dry ingredients. The dough will seem really wet for a cookie dough. This is ideal!
  • Add chocolate chips: Stir in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
  • Scoop: 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.
