Pumpkin Pie Cookies

By abbeysue

Egg- and grain-free these cookies are lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, and loaded with nutrient-rich pumpkin. The result is a soft cookie with a pumpkin-pie-like center!

Pumpkin Pie Cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond butter (creamy)

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

  • 2 tsps pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a Silpat.

  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and mix until a thick batter is formed.

  3. Note: Because this batter is egg-free, feel free to taste-test it at this point, and adjust the flavors to your preference.

  4. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop the batter onto the line baking sheet, and gently press each mound with a wet fork (to prevent sticking) to flatten.

  5. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are golden.

  6. Allow to cool completely before using a spatula to remove from the baking sheet. Serve immediately, or for a firmer cookie, chill before serving.

EACH of the 24 cookies this recipe makes is the 80 calories and 5 grams carb so this is no bargain in my book. But that's just me.

These look really yummy. I think I might add some pecans. And I just happen to have almond butter in the cupboard.
