Tis the season for pumpkin EVERYTHING!

Pumpkin spice lattes, cookies, bread, pancakes – you name it and we’ve probably pumpkin-ized it!

I love baking with pumpkin because it gives a soft and moist texture to whatever you use it in. These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are vegan and gluten-free and this was my first time baking with a gluten-free flour and I must say, it was so easy! Not only are these cookies absolutely delicious, they are guilt-free!

– 2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour blend
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
– 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

– 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
– 1/2 cup coconut oil
– 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
– 1/4 cup organic brown sugar
– 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
