In my house…pumpkin season has officially begun! I just couldn’t wait any longer. My whole family agrees that pretty much every dessert is better when it involves pumpkin and cinnamon. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin cake, and pumpkin cookies. What is your favorite pumpkin dessert?
These gluten free vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies have a good balance of sweet with a touch of spice. I love the flavor combination of cinnamon and chocolate. It’s magical. The pumpkin flavor is subtle, but that pumpkin puree sure does make these cookies soft and tender. They are quite tasty and just might be the perfect treat to kick off pumpkin season in your house!
