Paleo Pumpkin Cookies [Recipe]
If you have an obsession with pumpkin, a jar of pumpkin cookies within your reach will work great in satisfying your cravings. And when they are home-made, the freshness of these baked goodies makes your munching experience more delicious!
Every bite of pumpkin cookies welcomes your taste buds with subtle sweetness of the pumpkin, which in turn is complimented by the zesty kick of the spices. And if you are too lazy to get hold all the spices, a dash of pumpkin pie spice will do without compromising with the flavours. But the secret of a perfect pumpkin cookie not only lies in its yum flavours, but also in its interesting texture. After all, the crispy edges, in combination with the soft, chewy centre set it apart from all its cookie counterparts and turn it into a must-have among pumpkin lovers.
How can you ignore the slice of health if offers with every bite, owing to its low-fat, high nutrition quotient!?
- 1 cup almond flour
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree, canned
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips (paleo friendly)
- ½ cup almond butter
- ½ cup walnuts, chopped
- ½ cup honey
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and spread a parchment paper over a cookie sheet.
Place all the wet ingredients in a large bowl and whisk them thoroughly until they mix well.
Place the almond flour in a different bowl and stir in rest of the dry ingredients until well combined. Fold the dry mixture gradually into the wet one until they blend together to form a uniform mixture.
Drop small portions of the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet and press each of them gently with your palm to flatten them out slightly.
Place the cookies in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Turn off the oven and leave them within it for a couple of minutes then place them on a wire rack, outside the oven and continue to cool completely.
Seal them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge.
Munch on them whenever you feel hungry and enjoy!
