Ingredients

  • Ingredients for cookies:

  • 1

    cup coconut flour

  • 1/4

    cup ground flaxseed

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/2

    cup pureed pumpkin

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    cup unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk)

  • 2

    tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1/2

    cup grade B maple syrup

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Ingredients for glaze:

  • 6

    large pitted dates

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • 2

    tablespoons grade B maple syrup

  • 2

    tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1/3

    cup raw pecans

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions

Directions for cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix first four ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing by hand until well combined. Drop cookie dough by the tablespoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat, or lightly greased with coconut oil. If you would like the cookies to be flatter in shape, you can flatten them down a bit (they won't flatten out when they bake). Bake for 15 minutes, and remove from the oven to cool before icing. Directions for glaze: Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Glaze cookies immediately. Store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Note: If you want a less sweet cookie, they're also great on their own without the glaze.
