  • Preheat oven to 350 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 350 for 18-20 minutes until bottom of cookies are browned and start to get crispy on edges. Allow to cool for 10 minutes + enjoy!


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.
