Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, soft at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • cup oat flour
  • 4 tsp pumpkin spice (2½ tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp nutmeg, ½ tsp ginger, ¼ tsp ground cloves, ¼ tsp allspice)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • tsp or sprinkle of salt

Cinnamon Glaze

  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp nut or oat beverage

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, egg, brown sugar, coconut oil and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, pumpkin spice, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a spatula, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or two spoons, portion out the cookies on the parchment-lined baking sheet. It should make 12-14 cookies. With the back of a spoon or clean hands, flatten each cookie dough ball into a puck shape.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until small cracks appear on the surface of the cookies. Allow cookies to cool completely before adding the glaze.

Cinnamon Glaze

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cinnamon glaze ingredients. Drizzle or dip the tops of each cookie with the icing. Allow the icing to harden before storing, or serve immediately.
