Inside-Out” Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

14 Oct
  • 3/4 cup white-ww flour (or white or spelt)
  • 6 T plus 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • scant 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 T sugar
  • 2 T maple syrup or agave
  • 2 T nondairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 T plus 1 tsp oil
  • 3 T pureed pumpkin
  • 3 T nut butter of choice (I used pb)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 packet stevia (or 1/2 tablespoon sugar)
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine first 5 ingredients, and mix very well. Add ingredients 6-9 and mix again to form dough. In a separate bowl, combine all other ingredients to make the filling. Using about a heaping tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball and then flatten. Place a little scoop of the filling in the center and fold up the sides of the dough. Form into a ball. (The sides might crack a little, but that’s ok. They don’t need to be perfect.) Bake at 330 F (preheated) for around 10 minutes. They should be a little undercooked when you take them out. Let stand 10 minutes… if you can wait that long!

This recipe makes 18 to 20 big, fat cookies. That is, unless you eat half the raw dough and filling while preparing them. Not that I know anyone who did this…
