Pumpkin chocolate chip almond cookies - haven't heard of them before? Well, now you have. And you will be glad you did!
Now I know what you are probably thinking. "Julia, you put pumpkin in cookies! Why would you do that? Vegetables don't belong in cookies." I'm here to tell you that yes, yes they do. Because I like to bend the rules a little and in this case, it was well worth it!
Now before you go closing this recipe down, here me out. Cookies are incredible - we all love them (even if you won't admit it aloud). They are handy, convenient, and most of all, tasty. All of this and more apply to these cookies. Pumpkin is a power-packed ingredient containing a host of incredible benefits, that also enhances the flavour of any dish.
Let's dive straight in and check out these cookies.
To make the pumpkin chocolate chip almond cookies, you will need 13 ingredients, and 30 minutes.
This recipe is packed with a whole host of essential vitamins and minerals we need on a daily basis. The most notable ingredients include pumpkin, almond flour, almonds, and coconut oil. From this short list here, we benefit hugely from high sources of protein, fibre, antioxidants, magnesium, 'healthy fats,' and iron.
Flax seeds also provide us with a good source of Omega-3. In fact, just a single tablespoon of flax seeds offer *3 grams of Omega-3*
Wow, all of these amazing health benefits from natural resources! This is one reason that many of us choose to go vegan (among other reasons of course).
Pumpkin chocolate chip almond cookies are the perfect snack because they are:
Once you have baked your cookies, let them cool to room temperature. You can then store these cookies in an airtight container or storage bag (plastic ziplock bags etc) for 48 - 72 hour, depending on your climate and temperature. This recipe will make9 serves of cookies, which really is a good size. You can choose to store them for the next couple of days, share them with your friends or family, or eat extras. In case you want to avoid the temptation of overeating with these (and yes, it is a hard battle), you can simply half the ingredients list to make a smaller batch.
I really hope you enjoy these cookies! I certainly enjoyed making them. Be sure to share your results with us.
