Paleo Pumpkin Cookies

I never intended for this blog to be a cooking/baking blog, but I’ve been having so much cooking and creating delicious foods that fit my new lifestyle. Losing 56 pounds and feeling so much better has been a huge motivator. While I do love a fresh piece of fruit after a delicious, healthy meal, I sometimes crave some of my favorite junk foods. So far, I’ve made pumpkin brownies, and now I’m trying pumpkin cookies. I love pumpkin, no matter what season it is.

Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil – 2 tbsp melted
  • Eggs – 3
  • Vanilla extract – 2 tbsp
  • Maple syrup – 1/4 cup
  • Pumpkin purée – 1 can (15oz)
  • Coconut sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Almond flour – 1 cup
  • Coconut flour – 1 cup
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Almond milk – 1/2 cup
  • Pumpkin Spice – 1 tbsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 tbsp

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and almond milk.
  3. Add pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice, and coconut sugar and mix well.
  4. Stir in both types of flour.
  5. The mixture should be nice and gooey. Spoon out into golf ball-sized balls and space evenly on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  6. Place on the middle rack of your oven and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Once done, let cookies cool on a cooling rack. Cookies should be nice and soft. If you want crunchier cookies, let them cool on the cookie sheet.
  8. DEVOUR THEM!!!

Give these a try and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy them!!
