method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Add the pumpkin puree, melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, smooth peanut butter and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl. Stir until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture is a smooth consistency.

  • Next, add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until a dough begins to form.

  • Once your mixture has formed a dough, use your hands to roll the cookie dough into 12 even sized balls.

  • Place these on the lined baking tray and using your palms, gently press the cookie dough balls to flatten them slightly.

  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until cookies are a golden brown.

  • Leave the cookies on a cooling rack and begin making the salted maple frosting.

  • In a small mixing bowl, measure out the ingredients and beat until the cream cheese and maple syrup is well combined.

  • Frost each cookie and get creative with the decorations!

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days.
