For the moist elements:

For the dry elements:
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (83 g) almond flour*
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon (127 g) white/gentle all-purpose spelt flour**
  • 3 tablespoons (27 g) arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) pure cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon wonderful sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
For the Fluffy Pumpkin Pie Spice Buttercream:
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (75 g) soy-free vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (190 g) powdered icing sugar, sifted if vital
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch wonderful sea salt
  • Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, for garnish (optionally available)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line one extra-large baking sheet (or two medium-sized sheets) with parchment paper.
  2. To a small bowl, add the moist elements: grapeseed oil, maple syrup, pumpkin purée, brown rice syrup, floor flax, and vanilla. Whisk till mixed.
  3. To a big bowl, add the dry elements: almond flour, spelt flour, arrowroot starch, cane sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda. Whisk till mixed.
  4. Pour the moist combination over the dry combination (being certain to scoop all the moist elements caught to the perimeters of the bowl), and stir till it comes collectively right into a dense, very thick dough.
  5. The dough might be very sticky, however that is regular! Scoop a barely heaping 1 tablespoon of dough into your hand, and roll it right into a ball. Proceed with the remaining dough, putting every ball onto the baking sheet about 2 to three inches aside. If wanted, you possibly can evenly moist your fingers throughout this course of. Don’t flatten the balls earlier than baking as they may unfold out on their very own.
  6. Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes till evenly golden (I like baking them till evenly golden as the perimeters get a bit crispy throughout cooling). Cool the cookies utterly on the baking sheet. To hurry up the cooling course of, cool the cookies for 10 minutes on the pan then switch the cookies to the fridge till utterly cooled.
  7. In the meantime, put together the Fluffy Pumpkin Pie Spice Frosting: To a big bowl, add the vegan butter. Utilizing electrical beaters, beat the butter till clean (about 30 seconds). Add the powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Beginning on low pace, beat till clean and fluffy, steadily growing the pace because the elements mix. It’s going to look very crumbly at first, however it should finally come collectively and turn out to be fluffy. If the frosting continues to be too dry, you possibly can skinny it with a tiny little bit of almond milk (1/2 teaspoon at a time), and proceed beating till clean. If it’s too skinny, you possibly can add a little bit extra powdered sugar and beat once more till clean.
  8. Unfold the frosting onto the utterly cooled cookies, and prime with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, if desired. Serve and revel in! Leftover cookies may be saved in an hermetic container within the fridge for 1 to 2 days. The cookies will soften when sealed in a container.


* Remember to use almond flour and never almond meal which is far coarser.

** I favor the white/gentle spelt model. If yow will discover some, it’s so pretty in these! For those who can’t discover it within the retailer, although, you possibly can sift whole-grain spelt flour earlier than utilizing. The flour received’t be as wonderful and delicate as white/gentle spelt flour, however it should work in a pinch. To sift: place a big bowl on prime of a kitchen scale, and tare the size to zero. Spoon flour right into a wonderful mesh sieve, and gently shake the sieve side-to-side till you’ve about 127 grams of sifted flour within the bowl. Discard the coarse flakes that stay within the sieve. Utilizing sifted whole-grain spelt flour produces a extra healthful flavour and texture. Alternatively, you should use 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (127 grams) all-purpose white flour as a substitute of white/gentle spelt flour. When utilizing all-purpose white flour, the cookies will style a bit much less candy and complicated in comparison with spelt flour.

Flours are measured utilizing the “scoop and shake till degree” methodology, the place you scoop the measuring cup immediately into the flour and shake the cup aspect to aspect till the flour is degree. I like to recommend weighing the flour every time attainable for essentially the most accuracy.
