Paleo Pumpkin Cookies – Makes approximately 20 cookies
1 cup almond meal*
½ cup finely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking powder
1 cup canned pumpkin or freshly cooked and mashed pumpkin
¼ cup coconut milk
3 tbsp real maple syrup
½ cup raisins
While your oven preheats to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk egg, coconut milk, and maple syrup in a smaller bowl, then combine with dry ingredients and mix well. Add pumpkin and stir until combined. Drop cookies by heaping tablespoon onto a greased baking sheet. Dough will not spread much during baking, so leaving 1″ between cookies is just fine. Flatten slightly and cook for about 20 minutes.
After removing from oven and allowing to cool for a moment, transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Once cookies are cool to the touch, enjoy! Their texture and flavor will just keep improving overnight.
*Almond meal can be made by pulsing untoasted almonds in your food processor.
