Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t get any ideas… I haven’t joined basic b***h #pumpkinspicenation. I’m just capitalizing on the opportunities at hand, i.e. fall. And we do a monthly feature called Seven Things We Love on the AEO blog and of course, I choose “what we’re eating/drinking”. It’s turned into me asking my team what they want me to make and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies came up… also I wanted pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. There, I said it.

Full of real ingredients, unlike that #PSL you’re holding.

Pumpkin is so good for you, though. It’s full of beta-carotine and fiber and is a vegetable. You can easily add veggies to your normal breakfast with pumpkin pie oatmeal or a two-minute pumpkin quinoa breakfast muffin. So, I’m a fan of all things pumpkin, when it involves actual pumpkin of course.

A way to get your pumpkin spice fix while also not ingesting things that cause cancer.

These cookies aren’t super sweet because I don’t typically eat refined sugar so I have a really sensitive sweet tooth. You might want to add a couple more table spoons of maple syrup if you want them sweeter. Did I mention these are gluten free, refined sugar free and oil free?

I think I’m one of the few out there who doesn’t care for PSLs… and that was even before I knew all the crap that went into them. Pumpkin I can do, though… especially when it involves chocolate. I’d have to say that breads or muffins are my favourite way to get a fix, but I won’t turn my nose up at soups or chilis either!

Thanks for this! I’ve been bringing in so many fall-flavored treats to work and one of my coworkers is GF so I keep feeling awful for not having anything for her! This will be perfect :)

I need to try these! I’m doing some gluten free baking this weekend to test out Davida’s gluten free blend so this is on the list.
Also, thanks for making my day with ‘basic b***h #pumpkinspicenation’ <- that should be your opening line. Always.

I had to cool it on the pumpkin a few years ago. My fingers turned orange. As in, a coworker asked, “Did you have Cheetos for lunch?” ORANGE.

Agreed – the best combo!

dude my PS blondies are insane. I keep making them for other people but then just eat 90% of them myself. I feel so cliche for my obsession but I can’t help it. Checking out the AEO blog now!
