  • ½ cup vegan butter - softened
  • 1 ¼ cup organic brown sugar - packed
  • 1 tablespoons flaxseed meal - mixed with 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 ½ cup canned pumpkin puree - not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts - chopped and optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • Mix the flaxseed meal and water together and set aside.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the dairy-free butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the pumpkin, prepared flaxseed meal, and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture until well incorporated.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, if using.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Dot 3 or 4 extra chocolate chips on top if you wish.
  • Bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.



Place cookies in an airtight container and store for several days at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Freeze for up to 3 months.
