yum. these are quite delicious!



These look and smell delicious! I haven't tried one yet and neither have my family BUT I know they will be awesome! (I tried the batter ;) ) hahaha
I added 1/2 a banana, and had no chocolate chips so I planned on adding some chopped almonds but I forgot! So they are just pumpkin with a tinch of banana. and I added a simple thin glaze on top (powdered sugar + almond milk + vanilla extract), then I sprinkled some cinnamon on top.


omg.  This is what true love tastes like, isn't it?

I added:
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C. dried cranberries

They're velvety soft and kind of gooey in the middle, which reminds me of pumpkin pie.  These cookies are perfect.  Bake for 15 minutes - they burned at 18 minutes.



I have made these cookies for birthdays, parties, holidays,  and just for me and my husband to eat!  They are his FAVORITE cookies, and already my sister-in-law (who is a baker, and it has to be said, nowhere near vegan) hijacked the recipe and makes them now too!  These are like little mini cakes of joy and wonder, I think it's time for me to get cracking and make a batch soon!


These are so good. And mine have turned out like pumpkin bread but in a cookie form and i love it.
I didn't have any chocolate chips, so i added a little nutmeg and chopped almonds and it's sooo good.
I followed i_h8meat's advice and they turned out so moist and wonderful.


Scratch that.  Don't mash them down.  They were definitely better in the first batch.  Perhaps the muffin suggestion might be a better use for this?

I dunno about these.  I don't think I'm making them again.  I'm always jealous when everyone else seems to have a better result than I do.


I made these tonight.  I used half apple sauce & half shortening.  I added nutmeg, cloves, and allspice in addition to the cinnamon.  I used whole wheat pastry flour and added raw pumpkin seeds.  I used carob chips instead of chocolate.  I did not use an egg replacer since it had pumpkin and apple sauce already.

These were decent.  I would recomment mashing them down as my first batch did not spread what-so-ever.  I've got the second batch in the oven now. 

The batter was excellent eaten with a spoon!  :o)


I couldn't find pumpkin at my local grocery store, so I used canned sweet potato instead, and WOAH.  These cookies were damn good.  They came out super soft and chewy - just the way I like 'em.  I also doubled the amount of chocolate chips (because it seemed like the right thing to do).


A new favorite quick and easy recipe!
I used ENER G egg replacer and whole wheat pastry flour.  My oven had them done in like 18 minutes on 375.
LOVE them and they are seriously addicting so look out! ;)b
5 stars!


I tried these out last night. The bottoms burned terribly! I only had them in the oven for 10 minutes and the bottoms started smoking. I'm not sure what went wrong. The tops were cooked fine though. I wasn't too impressed with the taste of the cookies that weren't burnt. They were good in a subtle way but not amazing. I put a pecan in the middle of each cookie and the pecan was the best part. I put a ton of pumpkin pie spice in mine too and I barely tasted the pumpkin. I followed the recipe so I'm not sure what went wrong. I really wanted these to be awesome. Oh well, I'm glad they worked out for so many other people!
