Vegan Pumpkin Cookies
When it comes to health and wellness, you’re a smart cookie. That means you deserve a cookie recipe that’s as smart as you are, like this one. How is it smarter than others? For starters, in place of conventional white flour and sugar, this recipe uses gluten-free, organic and non-GMO ingredients. Plus, you won’t find any eggs in these cookies, so feel free to enjoy a spoonful of raw dough before you start baking. Put on your smarty pants and take a bite!
Makes 20 cookies
1/2 cup organic vegetable shortening
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour
1 cup Organic Gemini TigerNut Flour
1/3 cup organic powdered sugar
1/3 cup Nutiva Coconut Sugar
1/8 tsp. Redmond Real Salt
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat shortening and pumpkin puree until creamy. Add sugars and continue beating until well-blended.
