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.
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.
