Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Gluten free, Dairy free, High Protein Cookies)

Ok so I admit this Fall has meant a ton of pumpkin spice recipes coming from yours truly (check out my instagram @svelte_philosophy for more!) but can you blame me? Pumpkin is one of my favorite squashes! Itโ€™s super versatile meaning it can be savory or sweet, it packed with nutrients such as potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, vitamin E and B vitamins. Plus itโ€™s lower in carbohydrates than sweet potatoes but still can add moisture to desserts or baked goods! 

Also since I adore chocolate I decided to add some to these delicious cookies! These cookies are so easy to make, moist and almost cake like! Needless to say they didnโ€™t last long in my house!

  • – 2/3 cup pumpkin purรฉe 
  • – 1/2 cup almond flour
