Coconut Flour Pumpkin Cookies {Vegan, Grain-Free}

 

Good morning, everyone! I hope that all of you had a happy Thanksgiving, replete with great food and fun with family and friends.

I had a glorious time in bed with the flu. I know, boo hoo. But at least my husband and son escaped to visit my in-laws before I could pass it on to them.

I’m finally feeling like eating again, so to celebrate, I made some cookies. Specifically, pumpkin cookies made with coconut flour that are already making me feeling healthier as well as happier.

Vegan Coconut Flour Pumpkin Cookies

Using coconut flour instead of grain flour renders these cookies light and cakey; coconut sugar + pumpkin pie spice gives them a warm fall flavor without being overly sweet and spicy (i.e., feel free to eat one or two of these for breakfast or before heading out for a workout :))

Unlike the majority of baked goods made with coconut flour, my pumpkin cookies are made without eggs! A small amount of chickpea flour makes up for the protein structure of eggs in one fell swoop. 

Forget about spending a long time in the kitchen to make these festive, yet nourishing treats: you literally need about 5 minutes to mix them up and scoop them onto a baking sheet

Let’s get (power) baking!

Step One: Combine all of the Ingredients in a Bowl

Combine all of the dry ingredients (coconut flour, chickpea flour, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt) in a mixing bowl, then add all of the wet ingredients (pumpkin puree, water, melted coconut oil, and vanilla). Stir until combined.

Step Two: Scoop the Dough Onto a Baking Sheet

Using a small cookie scoop or rounded tablespoon, scoop mounds of the dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet

If you like (I do!), gently press a few pepitas (green pumpkin seeds) into the top of the dough. They add great flavor and crunch.

Step Three: Bake!

Bake the cookies in a preheated 350F oven for 15 to 19 minutes until the edges of the cookies are golden brown and the cookies feel just set and dry to the touch.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for two minutes before transferring (with a metal spatula) to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

If you cannot wait, go ahead and munch while warm.

Happy baking, everyone, and safe travels home!
