Check out this easy to bake, gluten, sugar and dairy free gorgeous, healthy and really yummy cookie recipe, you're going to love it: Pumpkin Spiced Cookie Cutter Cookies
- 1 3/4 cup almond flour (I prefer Honeyville)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup or xylitol syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine coconut oil, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and sea salt. Stir in almond flour and mix until well incorporated. Place dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
Roll dough out between two pieces of parchment paper into ¼ to 1/2 – inch thickness. Cut out with cookie cutter of choice and carefully place on prepared baking sheet. If the cookies soften too much to place on the cookie sheet, transfer again to the freezer for a few minutes. Place in freezer for 15 minutes and then bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes or just golden around edges. If you have remaining dough left roll out and cut out cookies and repeat.
Allow cookies to cool for 5 – 10 minutes on pan until transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cookies can be kept in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days or they can be stored in the freezer for longer.
Note: If you cut out cookies to 1/2-inch thickness they may need to bake a little longer.
