Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil warmed so it's liquid
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2/3 cups almond meal
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the pumpkin, syrup, coconut oil and vanilla in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add rolled oats, almond meal, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder, and coconut and stir well.
  • Fold in pepitas and chocolate chips.
  • Using roughly 2 Tbs, form the mixture into balls and place on the baking sheet.
  • Once they are all rolled, gently press to flatten just a bit. You should still have a thick cookie.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Notes

If you don't have almond meal or almond flour, simply grind up some whole almonds in a food processor or high powered blender, such as a Vitamix.
Pepitas are the green pumpkin seeds. I find mine at my local health food store. Walnuts or pecans could be substituted for the pepitas, or added to the recipe.
