Grabbing Paleo Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

It’s the hottest day of the year, and my kids want cookies (of course). I have yet to go grocery shopping this week, so we are entirely out of the basics for making Paleo chocolate chip cookies. After rummaging through the pantry, I found a can of pumpkin puree. I thought, what the heck we are making pumpkin cookies today! There’s never a wrong time to make pumpkin flavored anything, even in the dead of the summer heat.

You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety for more helpful tips and tricks you’d typically by-pass. Or, if you are feeling lucky, jump to the recipe below and get started!

Either way, I’d love to hear how your pumpkin sugar cookies turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.

How to Make Paleo Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine almond flour, tigernut flour, coconut flour, pumpkin pie seasoning, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine butter, pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla with a hand mixer on medium speed for 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.

4. While using the hand mixer, slowly pour the mixed dry ingredients into the large bowl on medium speed until thoroughly combined.

5. Next, roll dough into golf-sized balls (a little less than 2 inches) and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a small piece of parchment paper or your hand and flatten the cookies down to about 1/4-inch thick.

Tip: Roll your dough balls into coconut sugar for well coated and sugary cookies or sprinkle additional coconut sugar on top of the flattened cookies.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

7. Remove from the oven and transfer cookies to a wire rack and cool completely before serving.

How to Store Paleo Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Pumpkin sugar cookies are best stored in an airtight glass container in a single layer (or between sheets of parchment paper) in the refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 days for optimal freshness.

Essential Equipment for Making Paleo Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Hand Mixer – A hand mixer is used to combine all ingredients in one bowl for less mess! Hand mixers are amazing because they get the job done but don’t take up too much space for storage!

Baking Sheet – I love my baking sheets, there is plenty of room and they are easy to clean. (Especially when topped with parchment paper or a silicone mat)!

Basic Staples for Making Paleo Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Butter (or Coconut Oil) – If you can tolerate dairy using butter for this recipe is my to-go, for those who can not tolerate dairy using softened coconut oil is the perfect Paleo swap out.

Pumpkin Puree – For this recipe you can use either my homemade pumpkin puree recipe or organic canned pumpkin puree.

Coconut Sugar – Coconut sugar is the perfect refined sugar replacement because it offers some nutrients but also has a lower glycemic index!

Almond Flour – For this recipe, make sure you use blanched almond flour. If you do not have tigernut flour on hand, you can substitute the 1/2 cup with additional almond flour.

Tigernut Flour – I love the taste of tigernut flour in my fall baked goods. It gives an extra fall-like feel because of its nutty flavor.

Pumpkin Pie Seasoning – I love making a batch of my homemade pumpkin pie seasoning. It’s excellent to have extras on hand whenever the pumpkin cravings call. If you don’t want to have extras, you can mix 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon cloves.
