I just love it.
I also love the pumpkin craze. Yep, I'm one of those... I like to stock up on as many cans of pumpkin I can possibly get my hands on. And maybe some pumpkin yogurt, coffee, crackers, hummus. You name it.
So, naturally, I had to kick the season off right by making some pumpkin pie cookies. I love these cookies because I get my sweet tooth fix and just so happen to feel great after having one. I also don't mind giving Parker one since the ingredients are so simple.
Pumpkin Pie Cookies (Paleo)
makes about 10 cookies
1 cup of peanut or almond butter
1 cup of blanched almond flour
3/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1/3 C. coconut sugar
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla
1 1/2 tbs of pumpkin pie spice
1 pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl and mix well.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
With a spoon, scoop out a heaping spoonful of mix per cookie.
Mold the cookie into a ball with your hand, place it on the parchment paper and lightly press the cookie down to slightly flatten it.
Optional: sprinkle a pinch of coconut sugar on top of the cookies.
Bake for 12-15 minutes and enjoy!
