Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!

They melt in your mouth, not in your hands. For real.

I’m really loving the dark chocolate/pumpkin combination right now. Actually, I’m just really loving sweet things right now…and I’d rather make my own, relatively sweet thing, than eat a girl scout cookie that’s been in my freezer for 9 months.

So, I made some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from Food Lover’s Primal Palate)

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1  1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Guittard 63% cacao)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, pumpkin, maple syrup and vanilla until well combined
  3. In a small bowl, mix the coconut flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, making sure to mix with a hand mixer or vigorously with a spoon to avoid clumps
  5. Add your chocolate chips
  6. Plop on a parchment lined baking sheet (I use a nifty scoop that spoons out about 1 Tbsp of batter, so I ended up with about 30 tiny cookies)
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes
  8. Allow to cook on a wire rack.
  9. The end

So these were horrible. They need eggs and almond butter rather than butter. Really crumbly and disappointing. What a waste of expensive ingredients.

Hi Jessica! You could definitely add an egg-- or a little more pumpkin if you wanted to. The coconut flour sometimes dries things out-- it sucks the moisture right out of the batter! Let me know how they turn out!

I was wondering did yours come out kinda crumbly? I think adding 1 egg would have been a great binding agent... What do you think?
