Soft Paleo Pumpkin Cookies with Salted Maple Frosting

Soft Paleo Pumpkin Cookies with Salted Maple Frosting – Bestrecipe005





  • 1/4 cup melted and cooled coconut oil (or sub melted butter)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar (regular sugar or coconut sugar
    will also work!)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups packed fine almond flour (do not use almond meal)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon,
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon allspice or
    cloves)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional if not using frosting: Roll dough in cinnamon sugar
    (1/4 cup sugar + 2 teaspoons cinnamon)

For the Salted Maple Frosting:
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk, plus 1-2 teaspoons
    more to thin if necessary
  • Pinch of sea salt, to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet
    with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, add the coconut oil, pumpkin puree, sugar,
    maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined and smooth. Next
    add in almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Process until
    a dough forms. Allow dough to sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. Next use your hands to roll dough into golf sized balls.
    Roll in cinnamon-sugar if you’d like. Place on prepared cookie sheet then
    flatten each dough ball with the palm of your hand, but still keep the cookies
    nice and round. They should be about 1/4 inch thick before baking because we
    still want them to be nice, thick and fluffy. Bake for 8-11 minutes. 
  4. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and allow cookies
    to cool completely before frosting. Makes about 12 cookies. 
  5. For the frosting: In a medium bowl, mix together the
    powdered sugar, pure maple syrup, melted butter and almond milk. Add a pinch of
    sea salt to taste. If frosting is too thick, you can add a teaspoon or two more
    milk to make it spreadable. Frost each cookie then enjoy! Sprinkle top of
    frosting with a little cinnamon for a gorgeous look. Cookies will get softer
    each day. Cookies can be stored in a container at room temp for a few days,
    then I recommend storing them in the fridge.
