I think if every season had a flavour then autumn would be pumpkin spice! Seriously, can you go anywhere without hearing about pumpkin spice everything? I can’t blame anyone though. Pumpkin spice is spectacular! Well I can’t be any different can I?
I would like to introduce you to my pumpkin cookies that are filled with lovely pumpkin spice! They are not only free from gluten, dairy, sugar, grains but they are also vegan, paleo and nut free! So what is left in my cookies? Just plain old deliciousness!!
Pumpkin Cookies (Paleo/ Vegan/ Nut-Free/ Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)

1/3 c. coconut flour
2/3 c. ground flax
2/3 c. palm sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/3 c. coconut oil- softened
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 c. pumpkin puree
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl whisk together tapioca starch, coconut flour, ground flax, palm sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spice and sea salt. Set aside.
In a medium size bowl beat coconut oil, lemon juice and pumpkin puree. Stir in dry mixture. Spoon batter into one inch balls onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Flatten cookie balls with fork or they will remain cookie balls.
Bake 10-11 minutes for soft cookies. These freeze beautifully.
