Servings: 15 cookies


  • 1 cup almond flour blanched, super fine
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 ¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree homemade or canned
  • ¼ cup maple syrup pure
  • 1 flax egg*
  • 1 ½ t. vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips Paleo approved


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium-large mixing bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, coconut sugar, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl combine melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, flax egg, and vanilla extract. Mix with a handheld or stand mixer on medium speed for 1 minute or until well combined.
  • Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix at medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 1 ½ tablespoons-sized balls of cookie dough 2 inches apart. Press balls of dough down until the dough is about ¾ inch thick. (Cookies will not spread too much, so this step will help you make the shape of the finished cookies you want!)
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes or until cookies are done.
  • Let cookies sit at room temperature until completely cooled before serving. 


*1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed meal + 2 ½ Tbsp. warm water.  Whisk and let sit for at least 10 minutes before using.
Cookies keep well for 3-4 days at room temperature in an open container and up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
