Pumpkin Pie Cookies (Paleo)


It's that time of year! Seriously, I don't know about you, but I feel like I come alive in the fall time. I always have. The cozy, not too cold weather; the fruits and vegetables that are in-season, the colors, the smells, the comfy clothing, the excuse to do nothing at all.

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 egg
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

Directions:

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!
