Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake made with gluten-free ingredients for a naturally sweetened, dreamy pumpkin cookie recipe!
It is pumpkin season. So that means you are either hyped up and eating all things fall and pumpkin spiced OR you cringe at the thought of anything pumpkin (like Jord).
This Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake though is perfect for the pumpkin lovers or the haters. I gave a slice to Jordan and he had no clue there was even pumpkin in it! It adds just the right creamy and moist consistency but the flavor isn’t overwhelming at all. Plus whenever you add chocolate to something, it tends to overpower most of the other flavors, ya know?
I had my Dad try this recipe too and he said it is one of his favorites from the blog ever. Massive compliment coming from the traditional dessert king who doesn’t usually fancy the healthier alternatives.
I love that this Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake is a crowd pleaser for everyone. It is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and has no refined sugar in it. I use a mix of organic unsweetened pumpkin (make sure you get unsweetened, it is such a waste of sugar if not!), creamy almond butter and coconut oil for the wet ingredients. You can use flax egg or pasture raised eggs, so feel free to make this recipe plant-based if needed.
