Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip CookiesThese pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are gluten-free and grain-free. They are made with almond flour and sweetened with honey instead of refined sugar.

I’ve added coconut, cranberries and a dash of cinnamon for an extra-special treat.

Recipe below.


Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. With a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, these ones are slightly spiced. The coconut and chocolate chips add a sweet touch and the cranberries add tartness.

They are best made bite-sized so they are golden on the outside, soft on the inside, and won’t fall apart.
