As you read this post I will be flying high in the sky on route to Arizona….to celebrate my birthday!  My mom called me a couple months ago with the idea of a getaway for my birthday.  Not just any getaway but a spa and hiking getaway to Sedona, Arizona.  It didn’t take much convincing and I’ve been excited ever since.  But I didn’t want to leave without a treat.  Since it’s my birthday a treat is needed and this treat comes in the form of a Paleo-ish Pumpkin Cookie Sandwich with Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream sandwiched in between….I’m telling you this is the perfect treat to celebrate a birthday with in a Paleo fashion.  Since I’m leaving on my birthday we had to celebrate in my house and my request was not to have the traditional cake or ice cream so instead we had these!  They were heavenly and I have to say I’m so happy it’s that time of the year for pumpkin.  I love the stuff!

Ok, before I leave you I have one more treat….a giveaway!  The lovely folks at Taste of Home sent me two copies of their latest cookbook that just hit the bookstores.  It’s jammed pack with 800 baking recipes, which even include a few gluten-free items.  I’ll be giving away 1 copy to 2 readers.

Now let’s get to the treat.  First off the cookies!  Now there are a couple ways you can make these.  With or without the chocolate chips.  I did half the cookies with and half without.  Either way they are delicious.

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Print Recipe

2 cups blanched almond flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for sprinkling on tops of cookies

1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree

1 small ripe banana, mashed

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

In a small bowl mix together pumpkin puree, mashed banana, maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract. 

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until combine.  Then add melted coconut oil and stir to incorporate.  If you are using chocolate chips stir those into the batter.

Drop spoonful of batter (about 1 to 2 tablespoons in size) onto prepared baking sheet.  Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with additional pumpkin pie spice.  Bake cookies for 25 to 30 minutes until golden.

Cookies are best kept in a airtight container in the refrigerator. 

Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream

Print Recipe

1 can of coconut milk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice


In a bowl whisk together all ingredients until well combine.

Pour into the bowl of a ice cream machine and follow the directions of your ice cream machine. 

To assemble sandwiches:

On one side of the bottom of a cookie place a scoop of ice cream.  Take another cookie and place flat side down on top of ice cream and slightly press down.  Eat right away or wrap in plastic wrap or airtight container and store in freezer. 

Note: It’s best to assemble sandwiches when ice cream is soft.

    I would love to win for the fact that their recipes always seem like things that the average person can make. Items for the recipes are not odd or out of the usual and and be found in a pantry. things that can be made perhaps at the last minute and I need ideas like that.

    I just started to find my baking/cooking mojo, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease and (possible) milk allergy. It put a damper on things for a bit, but I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. I would LOVE the new Taste of Home Cookbook…especially if they’re including GF recipes! If my netbook doesn’t short out from me drooling on it whilst looking at Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies, I will complete steps 2-5.

  32. These cookies were quite tasty. :) I did have a problem getting them to bake in the middle though. I’m not sure it was because I baked them in a convection oven…but the cookies baked on the outside and not so much in the middle. I feel like they needed an egg.

    Otherwise, we gobbled them up – very spicy and flavorful! :)

  33. Jim says:

    These did not flatten out during baking. Do you squash them into a cookie shape first?

  34. MDelicious says:

    Hi Jim,
    They aren’t really supposed to flatten out as you can tell from the photo’s above. If you prefer flatter cookies, you can slightly press down on them before baking. That will insure you get a flatter cookie.

  35. Abby says:

    These are really delicious. I follow a paleo food plan and love a treat now and then. So great! Thanks!

  39. Just wanted to throw out there that I made a batch of 20 cookies with this recipe and with my ingredients (honey instead of maple syrup) it came out to 7 grams of carbs and 100 calories/cookie. (We have a type 1 diabetic here, so I HAVE to analyze everything I cook)

  40. Dee says:

    Made your cookies… my oven cooks to temp but after 20 minutes they were burnt offerings. Will give it another whirl for less time, but just wanted to let ya know…

  41. dcrow says:

    My daughter helped me bake these cookies today, and they are amazing!

  42. Dana Crow says:

    Hi there! This is the third time in a month I’ve come looking for this recipe, so it’s a favorite. This time, I will print it, but I’m sure I’ll be back for more. I love that it is so simple and turns out perfectly every time I make it. I’m planning on turning orange from pumpkin consumption!

  43. Ashli says:

    Would love your cookbook! As a mom of a 3 year old little guy & 1 year old twins… I always love learning new recipes for my family! :)
