  • 3/4 Cup Gluten-free Baking Flour or Gluten-Free Oat Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Gluten-free Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Maple or Sticky Syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil melted
  • 1 Tsp Flax Meal
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Dairy Free Chocolate Chips
  • pinch sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips). Add in the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Separate the dough into 9 evenly sized balls and place them on the baking sheet.
  • Press them down just slightly. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Let cool before serving.


  • For a non-Gluten-Free version of these Healthy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies, you can use whole wheat or oat flour.
  • For a non-vegan version, you can use dark chocolate chips and honey in place of the maple syrup.
  • Allow the cookies cool on a cooling rack for a while. They are certainly delicious warm, right from the oven, however,  their chewiness and flavor do intensify over time.
  • The cookies spread just slightly in the oven, so it's best to gently flatten out the cookie dough balls (just a bit) with your hand or the back of a spoon before baking.
  • Cookie recipe can easily be doubled by doubling each ingredient.
  • Use canned pumpkin for the best consistency. Don't use canned pumpkin pie filling, it contains added sweeteners and spices.
  • Line your baking sheet, don't grease it otherwise will brown too much and spread out.
  • Be careful not to under-bake the cookies or they’ll taste raw, and don’t over-bake or they won’t be soft.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
