Thanks to Food Babe for finding this great recipe.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies that are gluten-free with no refined sugar! 

Almost every holiday cookie out there is packed with refined white flour and refined white sugar…but not these babies! I use nutrient-dense oat flour that is gluten-free and sweeten the batch with organic coconut sugar and maple syrup.

I recommend using Arrowhead Mills Organic Oat Flour to make this recipe, as this will give you the most consistent result.

You can also make your own oat flour with One Degree Sprouted Rolled Oats and blend them into a flour in a blender. If you make your own oat flour it is very important to increase the total amount of oat flour to 1 3/4 cup in the recipe. These are my favorite oats because they are sprouted (making them more nutritious and easier to digest) and certified glyphosate-free. You don’t want no Roundup weed killer in your oats!

I often use organic coconut sugar and maple syrup in my baking because these natural sweeteners are unrefined, which means their vitamins and minerals are intact. White sugar is stripped of minerals and has an acidic affect on the body, so I try to avoid that as much as possible. You can take almost any recipe and substitute coconut sugar for the white sugar on a 1:1 ratio!

These cookies bake up perfectly crisp on my 360 Cookware Stainless Steel Cookie Sheets: 

I’m totally obsessed with 360 Cookware* because their products are so high quality, made with stainless steel and free of any harmful coatings such as PFAS, PFOS, PFOA and PTFE.

The way they conduct the heat in the oven is great, and I come out with perfect cookies every time. I know these cookie sheets will last me a very long time and I’m so happy to have them in my kitchen!
