It’s cookie season! Or, I should say – pumpkin cookie season. If you’ve read any of my other pumpkin recipe posts, you know I eat pumpkin all year long.
For some reason the majority of pumpkin cookie recipes don’t surface until September or October (okay, not for “some reason”, it’s because pumpkin is a fall squash), which is considered pumpkin season by many food enthusiasts.
My girls and I love pumpkin cookies and we are so very in love with these Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are soft and chewy, and have the perfect amount of pumpkin goodness (in my opinion).
Usually I load these Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Enjoy Life Foods Mini Chips, but my girls insisted I make these ones with the mega chunks. I think they were strategically trying to work more chocolate into the cookie.
Can you blame them? Either way, we’ve been enjoying this cookies for some time now and love warming them up (to melt the mega chunks) before we devour them.
Can I use regular butter or another oil in this recipe?
You can use regular butter or your oil of choice in this gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe. You should get the same results with both.
Are oats gluten-free?
I get this question A LOT. Oats by nature are gluten-free naturally. Often they get contaminated while growing (for example, next to a wheat field), or during processing. Make sure to buy gluten-free oats or purity protocol oats. Here is a great article by Gluten-Free Watchdog on Oat Purity.
What oats are purity protocol oats?
There are luckily quite a few company’s now, but GF Harvest is my favorite. For a list of oats produced under the label purity protocol check out Gluten-Free Watchdogs Oats produced under a gluten-free purity protocol: Listing of suppliers and manufacturers.
One of the many amazing things about these Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies is that they are super allergy-friendly. They are free from the top 8, including gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, and coconut (unless you use coconut sugar by choice). So they are an all around champion of cookies.
