Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bites

I Want In!

Fall is here and that means pumpkin everything – taking a cue from our pal George of Civilized Caveman, I attempted to paleoify an old favorite:  the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. These little guys are so delicious that it’s hard to eat just one. But remember, a treat – paleo or not – is still a treat. These are perfect for your fall gatherings, parties; share them with your family & friends.


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • 2 cups coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a stand mixer, cream together wet ingredients. The palm shortening will not completely bind, which is normal.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Using ½ cup at a time, add dry ingredients to the wet batter and continue mixing. The batter will turn very dense.
  5. Once all of the flour mixture is combined into the wet batter, add in the chocolate chips. If adding walnuts, add them in here.
  6. Spoon batter onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool & enjoy.

[…] Lately I’ve been utilizing a lot of fall and winter vegetables in my cooking.  I love this time of year and last year I wrote about how much I love chili around this time as well.  The inspiration for this recipe comes from my old chili recipe and my friend George at Civilized Caveman since he makes pumpkin everything.  I figured with all the pumpkin recipes out there, why not try to make a pumpkin chili one?  Turns out, I just had to make a few minor tweaks to my previous chili recipe and it turned out amazing.  I woke up this morning to the most delicious smell, I can only describe it as ‘holiday magic’.  This would make an ideal lunch or dinner on a cold fall or winter day.  If you’re so inclined, treat yourself afterwards with some Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bites.
