Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • ½ cup (120g) vegan butter, melted
  • ½ cup (120g) pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup (144g) brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cups (280g) gluten-free flour (1:1 baking blend with xanthan gum) *
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup (120g) vegan chocolate chunks **
  • ½ cup (80g) roasted salted pumpkin seeds
  • optional: coarse sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  3. Add in the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and mix until a dough forms.
  4. Add in the chocolate chunks and pumpkin seeds and mix until just incorporated.
  5. With a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop, place the cookie dough approximately 2 inches apart from each other on the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to fully cool on the cookie sheets. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt if desired. Enjoy!
  7. Cookies should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 7 days.


* I use this Kinninnick gluten-free all-purpose flour blend and love it! Make sure your gluten-free flour blend contains xanthan gum or you will need to add a ½ teaspoon to the recipe yourself.
