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!
How to Make
First, combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Then, add in all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
Finally, fold in chocolate chips. Serve!

Baking This Cookie Dough
This cookie dough is a great base for cookies! This dough is missing 1 teaspoon of baking soda, but otherwise it is great for cookies.

Just when I thought cookie dough couldn’t get any better. So yummy!!
What did you do to eliminate the bacteria found in raw flower? (Both grain-based and gf)
Hi Riley! I will bake the flour separately beforehand for about 10 minutes to kill off any bacteria.
Can you use coconut or maple sugar instead?
Hi Elle! Yes, both of those should work great!
