Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know, that’s a mouthful. The title and the cookie. One sweet, delicious, tantalizing mouthful of goodness. How can you go wrong with mixing pumpkin and chocolate; two of my very favorite ingredients. The pumpkin in this cookie adds just the right amount of moisture and flavour, without taking over. The thing is, I’ve thought about making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for a while now, but hadn’t taken the plunge. Hello? What was I waiting for. The right Sunday afternoon, I guess.  

Low and behold, it came. I have Laura Secord to thank for that. They sent me a big ol’ box of goodies, including their semi-sweet chocolate chips from their new baking line. Well, they couldn’t have found a happier home in my gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They turned out wonderfully. Little A. gobbled two up straight away. Mister Smith was next and the following day at work, there was a small taste test which produced ooohhhs and aaahhhs, with the promise of me making a full batch just for my co-workers.
What I truly enjoyed about these cookies is their texture. It’s not crunchy, but it’s bit like a dense, rich cake… however in a cookie. It’s good, I can tell you that – even if I’m not explaining myself quite right. You’ll have to hide them, maybe wrap them individually and stuff them in nooks and crannies of your refrigerator as to not devour them in one sitting. Although, the cookie-hunt might excited the whole thing and lead to that anyways. Use your judgement dear reader and above all else, enjoy! 
p.s they taste wonderfully with a cup of fresh coffee. Seriously.
As a side notethe next day the flavour sinks in even more and they are equally, if not better than fresh out of the oven. Something to keep in mind.

Since we did SO good this health and wellness month; with green smoothies, detoxing, and fitness – why not indulge in a little chocolate. Life is all about balance, is it not?  Join me in celebrating 100 years of delicious chocolate from Laura Secord! Wow, can you believe it’s been that long.  And for those of you who don’t know the origins of Laura Secord, here’s her history.  It’s pretty cool!

  • 3/4 cup of canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 1/2 cup of room temperature organic butter or virgin coconut oil (refrigerate to get similar consistency)
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
  • 2 cups of gluten-free oat flour (gluten-free oats, grounded)
  • 1/2 cup of brown rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 cup of Laura Secord semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 300 F
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and pumpkin spice.
  3. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add in 2 eggs and mix well.
  4. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and then add in pumpkin puree.
  5. Finally, add chocolate chips.
