I could not go through the fall season without making these scrumptious treats. I absolutely love all the things I can do with pumpkin! I used some pumpkin puree in my Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Stuffed Shells and Pumpkin Muffins recipes the other day and had some left over.
I decided to try making these mouthwatering cookies. The cookies were moist in the center with a nice crisp outside. The cookies were sweetened with coconut palm sugar. If you haven’t tried this sweetener, I recommend you do for not only is it healthy but it also lends a nice caramel flavor to your desserts.
How To Make Vegan Pumpkin Cookies
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl, In another bowl combine all the liquid ingredients including pumpkin puree. Mix wet and dry ingredients together.
Scoop and drop cookies onto the prepared baking sheet and slightly flatten cookies with your fingers. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Cool completely and add frosting one of the two frostings.
Note: If you don’t want to use cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice substitute with 1/4 teaspoon cardamom and 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander instead.
