GAPS Pumpkin Cookies – Nut Free

These cookies are made with coconut flour which is not my favorite alternative flours. However, as I am on Nut-Free diet on the top of GAPS, I started trying all coconut flour recipes instead of almond flour. As not big fan of coconut flour, it is hard to find good recipes. Coconut flour has the smell (of course!) and the texture is very different that I don’t like.

This cookies still have coconut flavor, however, texture is nicer with pumpkin puree.
As usual, coconut flour recipes call it for lots of eggs in the recipe to make it to hold together. My 3-year old “helper” insisted to crack all 8 eggs for me, so FUN! lol
Made the taste even yummier for sure!

The night of Halloween, I always bake/steam the pumpkin to make puree every year. (A lot of work, Halloween is not my favorite event for this reasons) Measure it to freeze in a freezer bag for later use like this! Save money and time, most importantly, very Fresh and Safe.
