Pumpkin Cake Cookies

The Casual Classic | Pumpkin Cake Cookies

I'm back with yet another delicious (and surprisingly healthy), pumpkin recipe! This one is, as most of my recipes are, extremely easy. Just a few ingredients, no special tools needed. These are moist, fluffy, delicious little cake cookies that you can eat pretty much any time of the day. Yes, I do eat them for breakfast occasionally... Oops!

To make these it is super simple: mix all the wet ingredients together (pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, coconut oil (melted), and honey). Make sure that there are no clumps and everything is mixed well - a whisk works great for this. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (coconut flour, spices and baking powder). Add this mixture to the wet ingredient bowl, and mix well. Finally, add in the dark chocolate chips. 

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper, and scoop about a tablespoon size for each cookie onto the sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes (sometimes, I leave them in a little longer to get them a bit firmer). Cool for about 10 minutes. These are best served warm, but like I said, I also eat them for breakfast on occasion...
