Paleo Pumpkin Cookies...Bake It Off.

I, like MANY other people turn to the kitchen when I am stressed out or feeling bummed about something. However, when I turn to the kitchen I do so to create, not to binge. Baking is definitely one of my stress relievers. I love to create new recipes, revisit old favorites, and sing to my favorite tunes all the while. Some people say, "shake it off," I say, "bake it off." I was feeling the need to get some kitchen time in today, and I decided it was time to start what I like to call, the season of pumpkin flavored goodness. Why is everything pumpkin flavored so dang good? I really don't know, but it is. I have posted a PLETHORA of great pumpkin delights on the blog before, (Click HERE for all of my previous favorite pumpkin recipes.) However, I haven't ever posted anything that was pumpkin flavored and paleo. I loved the Banana Chocolate chip Paleo Cookies that I made so much that I decided to try my hand at another flavor. Pumpkin time!
Paleo Pumpkin Cookies 

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/2 cup pureed pure pumpkin
2 TBS almond butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
1 pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of almond meal/flour
1/4-1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix together bananas, pumpkin, almond butter, and vanilla. Add to that, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, salt, almond flour, and chocolate chips (If desired. I made some for my roommate without any chocolate chips, and she loved them!) Spoon dough onto cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 13 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Makes 18 cookies.

 These cookies were so easy, and really tasty. I love pumpkin flavored anything, and you throw some chocolate chips in there, and you're good to go.
I froze a bunch of my banana cookies when I made them, and they were great reheated! I popped them into the microwave for 15 seconds and they tasted great. I plan on doing the same with this batch! I'm still sad that summer is over, but I guess a little pumpkin makes me feel somewhat better. ;)
