Tadaaah!

Seriously considering changing the name of this blog to “Pumpkin Paleo” or something.

On another note, you did read it right, I used “healthy” and “cookies” in the same sentence, completely guilt free, I’m serious, all goodness, eggs, coconut flour and pumpkin! what’s not to like?

Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Image

Ingredients (makes about 8 cookies):

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbs (heaping) pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice (or cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbs pumpkin seeds (optional)
  • 40gr/1.5oz organic dark chocolate chips (75% or higher)
  • 1-2 tbs sweetener (optional)

Now what?

  1. preheat oven to 185°C/365°F
  2. mix dry ingredients together, then stir in pumpkin puree, eggs and optional sweetener
  3. add chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds
  4. bake for ca. 15min
  5. best served with some almond or coconut milk as coconut flour cookies tend to be a little more dry and/or cake-like, but very delicious in their own right. The trick for a crispy cookie is to store them in the freezer & eat them right out of the freezer!

Starting tomorrow, we’re done with sweet treats! Bring on the soups, the lasagnas and the casseroles!
