Easy Vegan Soft Pumpkin & Almond Cookies

Now, a lot of people like crispy cookies, and sometimes crispy but soft and fudgy in the middle. However, there is this other type of people who just love soft cookies – and there is nothing wrong with that.
Today, I am presenting you my soft cookie recipe, that’s healthy but super delicious, perfect for fall!

When October hits, I pay a big case of pumpkin puree, and I am always on a mission to use up ALL of the pumpkin puree cans, so if you have loads of leftover pumpkin puree, but don’t know what to do with it, make these cookies ASAP!

How to Make Pumpkin & Almond Cookies:

Did I mention these fabulous pumpkin almond butter cookies use just one bowl? Yep, that’s right. You can mix ’em up and only have to do one wash. That is something I’m on board with!

We start with our wet ingredients. We’re beating up our nut butter, pumpkin, flax egg, and sugars until they’re smooth and creamy. Once you’ve got that you add your dry ingredients in, stir together, and done. Perfect cookie batter awaits!

Best of all, these cookies bake for just around 12-15  minutes. In the time it takes you to clean up, wipe down the counters, and put your baking supplies away, they’ll be done and ready to eat. Now you just have to make a cup of hot drink and dink into and you’re good to GO!

If you love sot cookies, you will absolutely love these almond pumpkin cookies!

    These were delicious!! I had left over pumpkin so I needed to use it up. This was a perfect way! I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt because I didn’t see the measurements for that. Thank you for a great recipe!

      Hi There, you certainly can, but that won’t make them vegan-friendly anymore :/

    Hello there,
    Wondering any difference in the texture, flavor, etc when using quinoa flour instead of oat.

      Hey there,

      quinoa flour tends to be dryer, so I would probably add a bit more moisture if you do use quinoa flour.
