Pumpkin Pie Sugar Cookies (Paleo)

Monday, September 23, 2013


Well happy official fall!  In my opinion there is no such thing as too much pumpkin anything once fall starts.  I have been wanting to make a low carb Paleo pumpkin cookie for quite some time now but its seems like every recipe I have attempted is more like a breakfast bread cookie with just a hint of pumpkin.  I wanted to make a pumpkin cookie that was moist, soft and sweet and tasted just like a pumpkin pie.  Well these are exactly that and they will make your taste buds do a happy dance. My boys basically fought over the last of these cookies and that is always a good sign since they are my official taste testers.

What you will need:
  • 1 cup of almond butter
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 5 tbs of coconut sugar + a little extra to sprinkle on top
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 tbs of pumpkin pie spice
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine all of the above ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix well until you have a sticky dough.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and drop rounded tbs size cookies onto the sheet. 
  4. Use a the bottom of a glass or the back of a spoon to gently flatten out each cookie.
  5. Sprinkle a tiny bit of coconut sugar on top of the cookies. 
  6. Bake for 13 minutes or until edges are golden.  
  7. Enjoy! 



These are extremely moist and beyond delicious.  I promise you will not be disappointed.  If you make these please come back and let me know what you think!

Made these yesterday as I was craving something pumpkin and came across your blog. Had to make with stevia, but are great!!!

I subbed 1/4 maple syrup for the coconut sugar and added a handful of dark chocolate chips (because that's how I roll!) It's been pumpkin protein punch breakfast cookies with my coffee this week! (Because seriously, I have a hard enough time getting the kids ready and fed in the morning...) Thanks for the recipe!

Yum, yum, yum! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Christina said...

These look yummy... how many do these make? And is it possible to roll the dough and use a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter? :)

SO good! I was surprised how good these were, because it seemed too simple! I did 2/3 cup almond butter and 1/3 cup applesauce since I don't love a strong almond butter taste and it worked well, although quite a bit runnier than you're much prettier ones! I also added chocolate chunks. Thanks for the great recipe!!

How do you make your cookies look so nice?! I tried to flatten my cookies with a spoon and the bottom of the glass and they both would stick to the batter. Any tips? Even though they were not pretty, there were delicious!

These were awesome. Turned out so yummy and soft! I will definitely make again! Love your recipes :)

My batter was very runny, there was no way it would form cookies (I am thinking the almond butter was more liquidy), but I poured it in a baking pan and made pumpkin bread instead which turned out pretty well.
