Paleo Pumpkin Cookies


I love all things pumpkin, and today I decided to try making paleo pumpkin cookies.  I’m delighted with the results–they are light, delicate, and delicious, and my apartment smells like pumpkin pie.  What more could a girl ask for?  Here’s the recipe:

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup stevia

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. cloves

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

4 tbsp. coconut oil

3/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine dry coconut flour, spices, stevia, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl.  Combine eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla in medium bowl.  Add wet ingredients to dry and fold in nuts, if using.  Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.  Enjoy!

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies.
