Ingredients 

Cookies:

  • 3/4 c. paleo flour
  • 1/4 c. Glean’s Pumpkin Goodness
  • 1/4 c. maple sugar*
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 c. cashew butter
  • 1 egg**
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TB vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt

Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup***

*You can also use coconut sugar.

**To make it vegan use 1 flax egg. Mix 3 tablespoons of warm water with 1 tablespoon of flax seed meal. Let it sit about 3 minutes until it forms a gel = 1 egg

***You can use honey or agave if you prefer

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Make your flax egg and set aside.  
  3. If you’re not using a flax egg, mix all wet ingredients: coconut oil, cashew butter, egg, and vanilla in a medium size bowl until smooth. You can do this by hand or with a hand mixer. 
  4. Mix all dry ingredients in another bowl: flour, maple sugar, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sea salt.
  5. Combine the wet with the dry ingredients until combined. 
  6. Using a cookie scoop to ensure cookies are evenly sized, scoop cookies onto baking sheet. I used this one. It’s about 1.5 teaspoons or so. 
  7. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
  8. While the cookies are cooling, make the frosting. Mix pumpkin puree, cashew butter and maple syrup together until fully combined. It should be thick. If you prefer it sweeter, add a little more maple syrup. 
  9. Once they are completely cooled, frost the cookies & enjoy! Frost as you need them, don’t frost and keep in the fridge as the cookies can get soft and a bit soggy. Best to keep the cookies in the fridge.
