Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Grain Free & Vegan)

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies have been available in grocery stores for a few months now, but I promise my grain-free version is worth trying. Not only are the cookies delicious, but they are good for you.

These healthy cookies are bursting with fiber from coconut flour and omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseed meal. The pumpkin adds in a good dose of Vitamin A while the almond flour adds a touch of protein.

Ingredients:
1 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup baked or canned pumpkin
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal (+6 Tbsp. water)
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. liquid vanilla stevia
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two cookie sheets with olive oil or use parchment paper instead.

In a small bowl, add the flaxseed and 6 Tbsp. water and let sit for 3 minutes. Place flours, pumpkin, sugar, baking soda, vanilla, spices, stevia and salt in a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer for 5 minutes. Add in the thickened flaxseed meal and chocolate chips and mix for another 5 minutes.

Roll the dough into 1/2 balls and place them on the cookie sheets. Using a flat spatula or the back of a wooden spoon, press each cookie flat. Bake for 15 minutes on the top oven rack. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.

Makes approximately 30 cookies.

Cheers to good health!

  2. Hello! I am writing because I love your website and I am actually in the process of launching my own. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease recently, and started http://www.glutenfreedomblog.com as a way to keep myself organized as well as meet other gluten free people, and share what I have learned. The official launch party is coming up, and I am trying to spread the word. Tons of companies, including Kinnikinnick, Lucy's and Bob's Red Mill are giving away free products during the launch! I am asking if you could help spread the word in any way, from tweeting, to writing about it, Facebook, etc. People, yourself included, are encouraged to subscribe by email or through Google friend connect ASAP to get in on the giveaways! Thanks in advance!
