shot of pumpkin chip cookies


another week down and excited for the weekend. we are expecting a cold weekend here. what about you?

we have been working hard over here with the bakery and getting some recipes made for the blog. yesterday we had so much fun in the kitchen. listening to Christmas carols listening to no music as we baked and ‘unbaked’ away. we are excited to share more holiday inspired recipes with you all. (we forgot to put our music on while baking)

today’s recipe is a gluten-free vegan pumpkin flavored chocolate chip cookie recipe


it is actually a re-make of our first time making these pumpkin chip cookies last October. we realized when baking these cookies how much we love pumpkin and chocolate together! the love started with this original recipe then our pumpkin brownie cupcakes re-confirmed our love and then remaking these cookies again only heighten our love.

pumpkin chip chia seed cookies

this time when we made our pumpkin chocolate chip cookies we wanted to use chia seeds in them for more texture. and we did not have our sprouted flours on hand like we did the first time. but with those few changes the cookies still came out great.  these gluten-free cookies are more of a soft cookie then a hard crispy one. we prefer soft cookies over hard ones anyways so it worked out nicely.

They look so adorable! And I love fluffy cookies. One of my favorite “fluffy” cookies are banana chocolate chunk.

Maybe you already addressed this, but you’re not longer showing up in my google reader. Is there a new feed I should subscribe to?

Lori and Michelle December 9, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Thanks Bitt!

Lori and Michelle December 9, 2011 at 8:56 pm

Anne, we are having major issues with our RSS feed not showing up in google reader. we are not sure why it stopped. we have tried everything to get it back, we are still working on it. and once we figured it out we will let everyone know! sorry for the confusion.

Totally love a good soft cookie – and pumpkin and chocolate is one of my favourite combinations…. was first introduced to the idea through a local cafe which had the most amazing whole wheat spiced pumpkin and dark chocolate chunk muffins (and we are talking some mega chunk action in these bad boys!)

Did you guys ever figure out what was up with the Google Reader issue? I miss seeing you guys pop up on there :( Maybe I should try resubscribing?

These cookies look amazing! I can ONLY eat soft cookies and don’t care for hard or crunchy ones very much at all. In fact, I think I’d rather eat cookie dough than a hard cookie 😀

just pulled these out of the oven. YUM!! thanks again! I’m on #3. Is that bad? I subbed sorghum for the amaranth flour. Amaranth is just too strong for my palate–even if it’s only a small amount in other recipes…I’ve tried several times to like it, I promise! :-) I also did about 1/4 cup and change of coconut sugar and no stevia and it was plenty sweet for my palate. Actually, I ate too many chocolate chips while I was putting it together so maybe I satiated my craving that way! As I type, I’m drinking a giant bottle of homemade coconut water kefir to help to offset my naughty behavior! Merry Christmas, ladies!

These are SO good. my 2 year old and I whipped up a batch of these yummy morsels this morning. I best pop them in the freezer to avoid eating the whole batch this afternoon. :)

I didn’t have any amaranth flour so I subbed with quinoa, millet and sorghum flours. I had little bits of each left so this was the perfect way to make us of it.

Thanks for such a delicious recipe! Happy New Year!

These look great. I have bought my first package of chia seeds but haven’t used them yet– these look like a good way to get started. Pinning….

I made a small batch of these today. I am just learning how to bake and they are delicious. They are so soft and easy to make. I am wondering, what would be a good substitute for amaranth flour? I have teff, brown rice, millet, and chickpeas flour. Also, can I omit baking powder or substitute with something else? I am just not sure how my son will react to baking powder.

Thanks :)
