Ingredients:

Here’s the list of ingredients you need to make these delicious gluten-free pumpkin cookies: 

  • Pumpkin Puree: It is required for a perfect pumpkin flavor that melts into your mouth. 
  • Coconut Oil: For a non-sticky batter we will add coconut oil in a cooled and melted form. It will not only make it viscous but also add the aroma of coconut to it.   
  • Brown Sugar: For making a perfect gluten-free snack we will add brown sugar resulting in slightly sweetened cookies with golden color. 
  • Almond Flour: For keeping it healthy, I add almond flour which is rich in proteins and all essential nutrients. 
  • Baking Powder: For the fluffiest and softest cookie Baking Powder is required.   
  • Cinnamon Powder: We all love cinnamon in snacks. That mild aroma and flavor can only be achieved with its presence.  
  • Ginger Powder: It will be used to drive flavor and traditional aroma.

How to make Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cookies? 

Just three easy steps to make these perfect soft pumpkin cookies.

1. Prep 

First, preheat the oven to 350 F. Also, line the baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

2: Mix Mix Mix 

In the meanwhile prepare cookie mixture. First, In a large bowl mix three ingredients including sweet pumpkin puree, coconut oil, and brown sugar with a hand mixer. Next add almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, and ginger powder and mix again until they form a nice thick paste-like texture free from any lumps. Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for 30 min for a firm consistency.

3: Shape & Bake  

Once the mixture is ready, take heaped size dough and roll them into a small cookie-like shape. I prefer doing it with the hand rather than using any cutter so that they look more natural. Ideally, the cookies should be about 1/2 inch thick before baking so that they will be nice, thick, and fluffy when prepared. Bake for them for 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven. Once it’s done remove them from the oven and transfer to a wire rack and allow cookies to cool.

Serving with Perfection  

Serving can add power to any dish including evening snacks and desserts. That’s why I always recommend some powerful ways to make them speak for themselves on the table.

These soft and thick cookies can be served with creamy frosting along with chunks of pumpkin pie. It tastes similar to a muffin and looks perfect for a teatime snack. 

Another way is to sprinkle some powdered sugar for a crinkle cookie look. That powdery topping on golden-brown cookies just looks marvelous. You can also add just whipped cream on the top for a single serving.

Another trick is to place them on the top of your favorite gluten-free ice cream. They are so moist and thick and will convert your normal ice cream into a mouthwatering dessert. 

Storing Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cookies 

Some of us love the convenience of keeping cookies. As preparing them on a daily basis requires effort. To escape this situation, I prepare for the whole month and store.

But don’t worry here’s my secret to keep them fresh! 

In order to prevent cookies from going stale, storing in a fridge or freezer would be the best option. All you need is a sealed plastic bag. Place the cookies inside it and remove the air in it. It will prevent cookies from bacteria growth and going stale. It is the only way to keep them fresh for the longest! 

Fun Fact: Pumpkin Cookies can stay fresh for about 6 weeks to one month if they’re stored in freezers. So you don’t need to worry if there are some extra ones left on the table. Simply reheat them in oven for 2 to 3 minutes and you are good to go.
