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

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

Recipe 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.
