The pumpkin puree in these delicious vegan pumpkin cookies gives them a great orange color and fall flavor and also acts as the “egg” to help bind everything together. Coconut oil takes the place of butter in these cookies and should be solid when you use it–if it’s not, stick it in the fridge for a few hours until it firms up. When we were developing this recipe, tasters said they wouldn’t have known the cookies were vegan if they hadn’t been told. We call that a win!

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

  • Beat brown sugar and coconut oil in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium-high speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to medium; beat in pumpkin, maple syrup and vanilla until just combined, about 1 minute. Reduce speed to low; beat in the flour mixture until just combined, about 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips. Using 2 tablespoons per cookie, drop mounds of the dough onto the prepared pan, at least 3 inches apart.

  • Bake the cookies until just set, 9 to 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt. Repeat with the remaining dough.
