Ingredients & Substitutions

Gluten free 1 to 1 flour is a great substitute for all purpose flour. I prefer the brands King Arthur Flour or Bob’s Red Mill since they most closely replicate regular flour. If not gluten free, all purpose flour can be used.

Tightly pack brown sugar while measuring. This adds the sweetness to the dough.

Cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg bring all the fall flavors. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, add a pinch more cinnamon.

Coconut oil or Vegan butter act as the fat. Use refined coconut oil for a neutral taste or unrefined for a slight coconut flavor.

Pumpkin purée adds the pumpkin flavor. Use pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie filling.

Vanilla extracts add a classic flavor to this cookie dough.

Use Vegan dark chocolate chips for Vegan and dairy free. Use any desired chocolate chips!

Baking This Cookie Dough
