Why I Love This Recipe

Substitutions in this recipe:

Vegan Substitutions: I tried making these cookies with out the egg and they were not as soft/chewy, and instead a little more crumbly. I didn’t try these with a flax egg, but that might also be a good substitution. If you decide to try that – let me know.

Flour Substitutes: Almond and coconut flour are extremely finicky to bake with. I wouldn’t try to sub out either. If you’re looking for a nut free cookie recipe try this one. If you’re looking for a coconut flour free cookie try this one.

Sweetener Substitutes: I did not test this recipe with any other sweetener. I personally love baking with maple syrup and wouldn’t recommend that you change this part of the recipe. Honey may work, but I can’t guarantee it!

Chocolate Substitutes: Any chocolate will work in this. You can use chips, chunks, mini chips.. whatever you choose!

WW Freestyle note: Points calculated using Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Chips. Save 1SP per serving by using sugar free maple syrup.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon coconut oil melted + cooled
¼ cup pumpkin puree
⅓ cup maple syrup
1 egg whisked
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup dark chocolate chunks I use 80% coarsely chopped


Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a lined baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat baking sheet.

In a bowl whisk together coconut oil, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and an egg.

Gently whisk in almond flour, coconut flour, spices and baking soda.

Fold in dark chocolate chunks to the batter.

Drop the dough in one tbsp balls onto the cookie sheet, pressing with your hands to flatten into small circles (about ⅓ inch thick). These cookies will not flatten on your own, so be sure to press down before baking.

Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes until bottom of cookies are browned and start to get crispy on edges. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!

Coffee or milk!
