Fall is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Crisp air, sweaters, football, and alllll things pumpkin. I don’t know what it is about pumpkin, but I just love it. I always look forward to the cooler air, because it gives me an excuse to finally start baking with pumpkin again! I’ve had plans all fall to make some allergy friendly pumpkin bread, or muffins. But, I just haven’t found the time (helloooo how is it already November!?). However, this weekend I finally took the time to whip up these gluten free AND vegan pumpkin cookies (with chocolate chips and cranberries). And by “time” I mean all of about 5 minutes.
The trick to busting these babies out so quickly? Namaste Foods Organic Pumpkin Baking Mix. They recently asked if I’d be interested in reviewing a product, and I literally couldn’t wait. I have been a huge fan of Namaste Foods for quite a while now. I use their Perfect Flour Blend ALL the time because it’s easy, and delicious. They are a completely allergy free facility, which gives this allergy mama a huge sigh of relief. So when I had the opportunity to do a review for them, I made sure to have them send me this delicious Pumpkin Baking Mix. Giving me the perfect excuse to satisfy my pumpkin craving.
These cookies are SO easy, and absolutely perfect. I am a huge texture person when it comes to anything gluten free. It can often result in a doughy end product. But, not these cookies. They are perfect. Noah and I devoured all 12 of them in an embarrassingly short number of days. And I have already made them again this week. We can’t get enough. And anytime I can find something Noah absolutely loves that is 100% safe for him, I’m totally sold.
