If you could smell my kitchen right now, you’d be in a warm pumpkiny-spiced Heaven.
That’s right, my kitchen smells g o o d. (Side note: I’ve made sure to take the garbage out before taking a bit whiff.)
As the fall weather hits, the gold and red leaves touch the ground, and the wonderful season that hosts winter squashes, brings about such a whimsical sense of holiday cheer.
And nothing, absolutely nothing, says holiday cheer to me than PUMPKIN.
Actually, pumpkin, kabocha, butternut squash, kabocha, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, kabocha, fairtale pumpkin squash… they’re ALL my way of getting into that holiday feel.
I have a slight squash obsession… (and at any given time have a nice stash of squashy-cheer)
If you’ve been to any grocery store lately, you know that pumpkins, squash!, are everywhere in drones. Fitting since it’s Halloween, but still. It’s time to start incorporating squash in your life.
Which leads me to today’s post.

Chocolate Chip Pale-umpkin Cookies aka Paleo Pumpkin Cookies
Makes 12 soft, spiced, pumpkin cookies
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- dash salt
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar crystals
- chocolate chips (1/3 cup-ish)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine eggs, pumpin puree, spices, and salt in a medium bowl.
Add the coconut flour, coconut sugar, if using, and chocolate chips, mixing only until incorporated. Let sit for a few minutes to have coconut flour soak up some of the liquid. Try to not over mix.
Mix slightly again, making sure all of the coconut flour is broken down and incoprorated.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, scoop 2 tbsp batter into rounds and flatten slightly.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until goldeny brown or slightly crisped.
