Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free)

Yesterday Michelle and I bought some canned pumpkin at the grocery store and decided to bake with it. And we thought of making pumpkin cookies! Our family loves pumpkin so we thought this would be a nice dessert for everyone to enjoy :)

Michelle and I also bought from Blue Mountain Organics their sprouted flours. We have always wanted to try baking with sprouted flours and were excited to see Blue Mountain Organics offering these flours!! We just have not had the time ourselves to make our own sprouted flours like millet and amaranth which are two of our favorite grains!! These pumpkin cookies turned out great and not only are they gluten free but free of many other top allergies :) We also made these cookies with coconut sugar and stevia to keep the sugar low, but the chocolate chips we use do contain sugar (therefore we consider these low sugar cookies).

Pure2Raw Recipe: Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup sprouted millet flour

Due to the sprouted flours in these cookies it does provide a different texture, a little grainy but still delicious! My oldest sister who loves pumpkin the most could not stop eating these cookies :)

So moist and delicious! Full of flavor! This was our first time using sprouted flours in our gluten free baking; so far the sprouted flours seem to work just fine. I love the health benefits of using sprouted flours like:

Sprouted whole grains provide four times the amount of niacin, twice the amount of B6 and folate, more protein and fewer starches than unsprouted grains, and low on the glycemic index.  High in fiber. Sprouting shifts the pH of grains from acidic to alkaline, thus promoting good health.

Now you could also put these cookies into a dehydrator if you would like to keep them more in the raw and use cacao nibs or even carob nibs for the chocolate chips. This recipe is flexible!

I am excited to try more things with these sprouted flours!

Have you ever used sprouted flours before in your baking or un-baking? What ones do you like to use?

What is your favorite  way to enjoy pumpkin? Any favorite combination of flavors?

Till next time,

Thanks Valerie, yes we have seen that article around in the blog world. Pretty crazy and sad. Thanks for letting us know.

I love pumpkin too, but I’ve never tried it with chocolate. I can’t wait to try these cookies :)
The mill by me just came out with sprouted flours so I’m so excited to try them out and I can’t imagine a better recipe to try them out with. Thank you so much for the recipe.
My favorite way is pumpkin pie, and I love pumpkin scones and muffins.

what a fun recipe! The only sprouted flour ive used is left over almond pulp for crackers and cookies– that’s sprouted right? I think so.

Heathy October 6, 2010 at 12:23 pm

What a great looking recipe girls! Now that I’m eating some baked things this is right up my ally – and a friend gave me 2 cooking pumpkins from her garden the other day – I love pumpkin!

Hugs and love to you! xo

Those cookies look yummy and I love that you’re working with sprouted flours! I really don’t do well with any grains, but am curious to try sprouted quinoa/amaranth and see how those work.

I bet the dough would be yummy by itself – that’s the beauty of no-allergen foods!

Thanks for sharing!
love

Ela that is so right! I hope that sprouted grains can work for you!

Lori October 6, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Woah these look fantastic! I want one! I love the use of the pumpkin in the recipe- they look so moist! Yum!!!

I like using the higher protein grains- they do have a slight taste but coupled with all the other ingredients, I’m sure it just adds to the amazing flavors.

As I said on twitter, these cookies look awesome!
I need to try your goodies from the bakery!

Oh wow, these sound amazing! I have never baked with sprouted flours before, but I’m curious to try them out! Thank you for mentioning Blue Mountain Organics, it’s always great to get some new healthy eating resources!

These look amazing!! I’ve been searching for an egg free, gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe :) question…would it be possible to substitute the flours in this recipe for an all purpose gluten free flour? If so, what would the measurements be & would anything else change? Thanks so much for your help!
