Paleo Pumpkin Cookies!

Long time no post eh? Well I adapted one of Elena's Pantry recipes last night to have a little more spice and cookies instead of muffins. Since Piet and I have been Primal, I've been experimenting with different baked goods and so far this might be my favorite!

Paleo Primal Pumpkin Cookies


1.5 cups almond meal or almond flour (I use the Trader Joe's brand)

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1.2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

2 TBSP grapeseed oil

1/2 cup agave

2 eggs

1 cup organic canned pumpkin, or fresh pumpkin

few handfuls of walnut pieces or other nut


Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

Combine all the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl and mix until smooth.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until mixed well.

Drop large TBSP's full of the batter into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Should make about 18 cookies.

Bake for 16 minutes at 350 degrees.

Viola guilt free cookies you can munch on through the holidays!
