These cookies are soft with a slight crispiness around the edges. They are sweet with just the right amount of pumpkin spice and cinnamon. A perfect cookie to enjoy in autumn or during the cold winter months.
- 1 and ½ cup white whole wheat flour*
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp ginger
- ⅓ cup cane sugar*
- 3 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4.5 tbsp coconut oil (melted)*
- 3.5 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 3 tbsp milk of choice (or a touch more if your dough seems a bit dry)
- Pre-heat oven to 325ºf or 160ºc.
- Put dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Mix until all the spices are nicely dispersed.
- Put wet ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together until very smooth and creamy.
- Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix the dry and the wet together until you form a ball with the dough. I find working the dough with clean hands works the best!
- Leave the dough to chill out in the fridge for at-least 30 minutes.
- Put cinnamon and sugar in a small dish. Mix. Roll cookie dough into little balls (1 tbsp size for medium size or 1 tsp size for mini cookies). Roll the cookies around a bit in the dish until the "cookie balls" are lightly covered with cinnamon.
- Place cookie dough balls onto lightly oiled cookie sheet.
- Flatten cookies out slightly with your palm (they will puff up again!)
- Bake for ten minutes.
- Let sit for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet and Voila! Enjoy!
- If you don't have cane sugar on hand use white or a light brown sugar.
- If you don't have any coconut oil on hand you can also use walnut oil, canola oil, peanut oil...
- If you want to make these cookies lower in fat you can try subbing some of the coconut oil for pumpkin puree but this will result in a "cakier" cookie.
- Make sure to leave the cookies on the cookie sheet for ten minutes... they will continue cooking a little bit and will be much easier to transfer (hehe, I admit, I "tested" one when they came out of the oven 😉 They pumpkin spice and cinnamon sugar smell soo good... it's almost impossible not to!)

I’ve loved cookies as long as I can remember. When I was little I would happily help my great-grandma make her famous chocolate chip cookies… she taught me so much about baking and cooking 🙂 Now, whenever I make cookies I think about her and the wonderful times we had together in the kitchen.
