    Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge Cookies

    So does anyone remember those Dark Chocolate Avocado Cookies from a few years ago?!? They 100% inspired this new recipe.

    These paleo cookies taste like the fudgiest brownies in cookie form.

    They are extra fudgey and chocolatey and so so good. You also wouldn’t ever expect there to be pumpkin in there. I definitely didn’t set the bar high for these cookie when I put them in the oven. The dough looked a little too liquidy despite adding more flour. But next thing you know these amazeball cookies came hot out of the oven. And they were ready to be devoured.

    What I love about these paleo cookies is how simple they are to make. You only need about 7 ingredients to whip them up and they are relatively low in sugar since the whole batch just has a little coconut sugar to sweeten them. Plus some dark chocolate of course 🙂 Code RACHL for free shipping on this refined sugar-free chocolate.

    I find that these cookies taste best fresh out of the oven or cold in the fridge or freezer. But I am also one of those weirdos who loves eating desserts extra cold or just out of the oven. I took one of these cookies off the tray so quickly that I burned my hand (oops).

    Dipped in some nut or coconut milk, you are golden! They have a little extra chewiness to the texture too. SO good you guys!!

    Here are a few of my other favorite pumpkin desserts too from the blog. I rounded up all the staples we need for baking this season! I have already made my Paleo Chocolate Pumpkin Bread a few times. And this 5-ingredient Creamy Squash Pasta (vegan + gluten-free).

    would you recommend subbing oat or coconut flour if I do not have almond flour on hand?

    When you call for “dark chocolate” in a recipe, do you mean sweetened or unsweetened?
