Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together 1/4 cup melted coconut oil, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and salt in a bowl and stir. Fold into the almond flour. Knead together using your hands until completely combined.

  • Step 3

    Using two pieces of parchment paper, place dough in between it. Flatten out evenly with a rolling pin. About 1/4 inch in thickness.

  • Step 4

    Using 3 inch circle cutters, cut out 12 cookies (re-roll dough if needed). Use a 1/2 inch cutter to cut out centers.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 13 minutes. Carefully move them to a cooling rack and let cool for at least 30 minutes before glazing with chocolate sauce.

Chocolate Sauce:

  • Step 1

    Using a double boiler over medium heat, add chocolate chips and remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix until completely smooth and combined. Remove from heat.

  • Step 2

    Dip bottoms of cooled cookies in chocolate sauce, place face side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for 5 minutes to set chocolate.

  • Step 3

    Once chocolate bottoms are set, flip face up and drizzle chocolate sauce over top using a spoon. Freeze another 5 minutes to set.

  • Step 4

    Remove from freezer and bring back to room temperature before serving.
