Pumpkin Spiced Cookies

pumpkin spiced cookies

Lots of you have been asking for autumnal recipes and now that the temperature has started to drop, I've been feeling really inspired! These Pumpkin Spiced Cookies aren't too sweet but contain comforting spices, oh-so-autumnal pumpkin and have a crumbly, cookie-like texture. 

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, promotes healthy skin, anti-inflammatory 

Makes 10-12 cookies

1 cup gluten free jumbo oats
3/4 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp gluten free baking powder
Pinch sea salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I used canned)
1/2 cup coconut oil (liquid)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with a silicone sheet or baking paper.
2) In a mixing bowl, combine both types of oats along with the pumpkin seeds, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves).
3) In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, coconut oil and vanilla.
4) Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.
5) Using your hands, take a small portion of the mixture and shape into a ball (approximately the size of an energy ball). Squash the ball so that it forms a flattened cookie shape and place on the prepared baking tray. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up.
6) Bake for 20 minutes, until golden. Carefully remove the cookies from the baking tray and allow to cool on a wire rack.
