Ingredients needed to make this recipe
How To Make Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Mix the egg, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and maple syrup in a medium-size mixing bowl.
- Add in the pumpkin, almond butter, and vanilla and stir to combine.
- Stir in the almond flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Cover the dough and chill it for 20-25 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray or line a baking sheet. I used a baking mat but you could also use parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
- Drop the cookies in even-sized balls onto the baking sheet. I used a small ice cream scoop.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes, remove, add more chocolate chips to the tops with a pinch of sea salt and let cool for at least 30 minutes.
These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are so crazy good, a hint of sweetness + a hint of savory flavor from the pumpkin and pinch of sea salt, a perfect salty + sweet combo.

Recipe Tips and variations
- Use creamy almond butter and not chunky. The creamy almond butter acts as a binder in these cookies and also makes them super moist.
- To make these lighter, you can use sugar-free dark chocolate chips.
- You can use melted coconut oil or melted butter in this recipe, they both work.
- Add in extras like chopped nuts, dried cranberries, or raisins.
- Let the cookies cool after baking since they will still cook a little bit more and firm up after they are done baking.
- For that bakery-style look, add some more chocolate chips and a pinch of sea salt to the top of the cookies right after they come out of the oven.
- You can store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days!
