Are you ready for cookies this amazing? A little bit of this and a little bit of that, turned into ooey gooey pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with walnuts and the slightest hint of coconut flavor, mingled with delicious Fall spices. It’s a party for your senses, really. The moist, cake-like consistency of these cookies is over the top and paired with a glass of milk (ice cold coconut milk is sooooo good) – make the combo such a tantalizing indulgence.
I couldn’t resist dunking mine in coconut milk – it just made sense. I couldn’t believe how well coconut flour lent itself to this recipe, making the cookies tender and melt in your mouth good. I’m definitely going to have to make another batch before the season is through. Who am I kidding, these are going on the all-year round list!
It’s totally worth trying this recipe with the coconut flour, because it’s such a subtle addition to the complexity of flavors and there is no doubt it adds to the moisture and yummy consistency of the cookies. Oh enjoy friends!
