Vegan, Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Cookies

I created this recipe to capture the magic of Fall in a cookie. Specifically, in a gluten free, vegan cookie.  Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread (which I also have a gluten free recipe for…), pumpkin seeds, pumpkin picking, pumpkin spiced egg nog – basically all things pumpkin – are very high on my list of things to enjoy in the fall.  I wanted to create a cookie that not only embodied my favorite flavors but also took dietary restrictions into consideration.  This cookie tastes like pie and crumbles like a cookie. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Ingredients:

  • 15oz of organic pumpkin (I used a canned version)
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 tbsp sorgum flour
  • 3 tbsp Agave
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp gluten free vanilla extract
Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all ingredients well. The mixture will be sticky, but not as sticky as traditional cookie dough.
  • Use a rounded tablespoon to place the dough on a lined cookie sheet.  Flatten the dough to a two inch diameter. Leave 1/2 inch between cookies.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature then refrigerate overnight to allow them to set.  The cookies will be soft but still well formed.
