Pumpkin Pie Cookies (Vegan, Grain-Free)

I hope you’re not sick of pumpkin yet.

These cookies were inspired by the Vegan Pumpkin Pie I made last year. With only 4 ingredients, it’s one of the easiest and tastiest pies to ever come out of my kitchen.

Out of curiosity, I decided to try tweaking that recipe to create portable, perfectly-portioned cookies that are bursting with Fall flavor. The result is an egg-free, grain-free cookie with a soft, pumpkin-pie-like center. Lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, and loaded with nutrient-rich pumpkin, I hope these cookies will be a hit with the pumpkin-lovers in your home, too!

makes 2 dozen cookies

Inspired by this Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients:

1 cup creamy almond butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

optional: 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a Silpat.

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and mix until a thick batter is formed. If adding the dark chocolate chips, fold them in last.

Note: Because this batter is egg-free, feel free to taste-test it at this point, and adjust the flavors to your preference.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop the batter onto the line baking sheet, and gently press each mound with a wet fork (to prevent sticking) to flatten.

Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are golden.

I always prefer my cookies slightly soft and under-baked, so I removed mine from the oven after 12 minutes, but for a firmer cookie, I’d recommend leaving them in for closer to 15 minutes.

Allow to cool completely before using a spatula to remove from the baking sheet.

As you can see, I made half the batch with dark chocolate chips, and half without. The pumpkin-chocolate-chip cookies have been the more popular version among my friends, but I prefer the “plain” ones, myself.

Notes
For longer shelf life, and a firmer cookie, we prefer to store these in the freezer and serve them frozen!

Whichever version you try, I hope you’ll enjoy them!

Reader Feedback: What’s your favorite type of dessert? Cookies? Pie? Cake? I used to be a cake-girl (I love frosting!), but now I prefer the ease and portability of cookies!
