No-Bake_Gluten_Free_Pumpkin_CookiesOne of the challenges when looking for #TrueGlutenFree cookie recipes is finding those that do not include any form of grain. For example, today I found a great recipe for No-Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies, but as we all know oats contain a type of gluten, avenin which is comprised of 16% of the gluten protein. 

Here is my variation to No-Bake, True Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies: 

  • 3/4 cup of coconut flakes 
  • 1/2 almond pulp; I always save my leftovers from making my homemade almond milk
    • If this isn't an option, I'd recommend tossing some almonds in a food processor 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: pinch of pumpkin pie spice
  • Optional: 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips (try Enjoy Life) 
  • 1/3 cup of canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 

Combine all dry ingredients. In separate bowl, combine all liquid ingredients, then stir to combine and form into balls or cookies. I put mine on parchment paper and then put in freezer for 30-45 minutes.
