There’s no shortage of pumpkin recipes on the blog, however, nothing quite like these Soft Paleo Pumpkin Cookies! They’re made with the best quality whole foods, are soft and cinnamon-spiced, and pair perfectly with Fall drinks. Also important: they’re healthy enough for breakfast, or anytime snacking 😉

They only take about 10 minutes to make the easy-peasy dough, and then just 10-12 minutes to bake. A lot faster than pie!!!

They’re delish warm, chilled, & room temperature. Pair with hot coffee or tea, hot chocolate or a chilly glass of non-dairy milk. Can’t go wrong! Make sure to eat at least one, warm from the oven, while the chocolate is melty perfection 😻
