Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

These Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies are gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and egg free. They can also be nut free, but don’t think that they aren’t delicious, because they are!

Loaded with fibre and healthy fats, this cookie with satisfy you and keep you going.

I like to purchase organic pumpkin puree and I use Nuts To Your Organic Pumpkin Seed Butter. Check your local health food stores or healthy aisles as your grocery store to find these ingredients. I buy my nut butters by the case from Rainbow Foods.

I had two of these Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies for my breakfast the other day and I poured a bit of coconut milk over them and they were so delicious!

Who says you can’t have cookies for breakfast?
