Sugar Detox Pumpkin Cookies (low carb)

11/10/2013 - 13 comments

During my 21 day sugar detox, I am looking for ways to satisfy my sweet cravings without something sweet and I have found that sometimes just eating something in the form of a cookie is emotional satisfaction and does the job.

The other day I posted a Sugar Detox Cookie Recipe made with almond butter, today I have one made with one of my most favorite things.


I actually had some “third-party” testing done on these and they said “these aren’t bad” which is a great testimonial regarding a cookie without ANY form of sugar or grains.

Low Carb Pumpkin Cookies
  • ½ - ¾ cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease with butter or line baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. In a bowl, whisk pumpkin, oil, eggs and vanilla together until blended.
  4. Add the cinnamon and coconut flour (sifting will provide better results) and stir until fully combined.
  5. Add in the coconut and mix thoroughly.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheet and flatten slightly. Don't make it took flat, these should be over ¼" thick, closer to ½ inch.
  7. Bake 15 minutes until browned on the edges.

Next time I am going to add some nutmeg and a pinch of salt to see how it tastes, but overall I really am enjoying these. They are quite moist and tasty.

    Could I substitute almond flour for the coconut flour?

      I would think you could. It might be a bit denser but should still work.

    I think the recipe calls for a pinch of salt. I used pumpkin pie spice. They are really good. I might like to try walnuts in them.

      Yeah I forgot the salt and they were fine, although my testers suggested salt. I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice but I think the walnuts will be a great addition too.
