WELCOME FALL

There’s just something about cooler weather that makes me want to BAKE. You too? It’s been entirely too long since I baked cookies!

With fall officially here, and the temps dropping, it’s time to crank up the oven and get cozy with some FRESHLY BAKED COOKIES. Yummmm.

Since I had some leftover pumpkin puree from my last recipe, Pumpkin ‘Cheesecake’, I just knew some pumpkin cookies were the perfect thing to make.

These did not disappoint! The flavor, texture, and pumpkin deliciousness were on POINT.N'Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies - PrettyPies.com

What is N’Oatmeal??

N’oatmeal is faux oatmeal. Imitating the flavor and texture of oats, but without any grains.

Ever since I developed a food sensitivity to oats, I had to stop eating them, or my stomach pays for it dearly (which is a bummer, since I LOVE them so much.)

Well, now I’ve found an amazing alternative! I can’t believe how much these cookies remind me of oatmeal cookies. My whole family agreed!

Almond flour, coconut butter and cinnamon make the winning N’oat combination! (ps. there’s no almond or coconut taste, just yummy chewy warm oat cookie flavor!)

Pumpkin LOVE

The perfect cookie: tender, CHEWY and slightly crisp! Adding pumpkin puree into the cookie dough keeps these cookies tender, and the coconut makes them chewy and crisp on the outside edges.

The pumpkin also adds some natural sweetness, so you don’t need much sweetener for this recipe. ONLY 1/4 cup! SWEET! So these cookies are lower in sugar that traditional cookies, but still SO delicious!

In every bite, you’ll taste all of the warmth of FALL: cinnamon, pumpkin, with hints of nutmeg, allspice and ginger. And your house will smell AMAZING when these are in the oven!

WIth the amount of spice I used in the recipe, it was subtle, making these taste like oatmeal cookies (not a strong spice). But if you’re a major pumpkin spice LOVER, go ahead and add another 1/2 -1 tsp MORE pumpkin spice. You’re gonna love it!

Free.. SO FREE

Not only are these free from gluten/grains, dairy, soy, and refined sugar, they are also EGG-free, which is a big deal for cookies. (I hear a big YAY from my egg-free friends!) So they fit both vegan and Paleo diets.

And there’s no flax or chia eggs either! So the flavor is not altered by the strong taste of flax.

The coconut butter acts as a binder, and their petite “Two-Bite” size helps them not fall apart like other egg-free cookies.N'Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies - PrettyPies.com

Are you ready to fill your house (and belly!) with the wonderful aromatic N’Oatmeal Pumpkin GOODNESS? Bake on, friends!

What I used:
Shredded Coconut I made homemade coconut butter by blending 2 cups of shredded coconut in a food processor until liquefied (about 20-30 minutes), scraping down the sides as needed.
Or use store-bought Coconut Butter (also called Coconut Manna). Warm the jar in a bowl of hot water to soften, or microwave for 30-60 seconds and be sure to stir each time before using.
Almond Flour
Storage:
These are best served same-day for the optimal texture. Store these in the refrigerator, lined with paper towels in between to absorb the extra moisture. They're also delicious from the freezer.
These cookies will get soft after being stored. To serve after storing, heat them in a toaster oven @ 350 for about 5 minutes OR on a dry skillet over medium until they crisp back up. (Careful not to burn the bottoms. Just keep an eye on them.) 🙂
To make these, I adapted one of my favorite cookie recipes EVER-- these chocolate chip cookies! - and transformed them to be full of FALL yumminess.

    These sound amazing. What is the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil? Are they interchangeable? Thanks for all the great recipes!

    • Emily says:

      Thank you! Coconut butter is different from the oil. It is made of dried coconut– blended into a butter. See my notes below the recipe. It’s really easy and inexpensive to make if you have a food processor. If you don’t have one, I included a link where you can find coconut butter. Hope that helps!

    • Emily says:

      You could try replacing the maple with an equal amount of coconut milk, and sweeten with stevia to taste (the equivalent of 1/2 cup of sugar).

      That might make the cookies more fragile, though since the stickiness of syrup helps them stick together. So handle with care 🙂

      If you try replacing the sweetener, please report back how it goes
