Paleo pumpkin cookies (no eggs, low sugar)

How to make the easiest pumpkin cookies without any grains, gluten, dairy, eggs or soy!


Well, our days continue to be one big blur over here. Madison seems to sleep her best from 7am to 9am, so that is usually when I sleep too. With me sleeping in until 9am my mornings don’t really start until 9:30am after I finish nursing her. It feels so weird to be sleeping in when I love my mornings. I am a morning girl. Not sure yet if Madison will be or not.

Like we mentioned yesterday we can’t seem to stop making cookies over here.

One can never have too many cookies recipes right?  Especially if they contain pumpkin and minimal ingredients.

Who doesn’t love a good ‘healthy” cookie to enjoy.

Here is our current favorite go-to quick and simple pumpkin cookie recipe.

Do we have you wanting to make these pumpkin cookies right now?

If so, go now and make them. We will wait 😉

It’s scary how easy these pumpkin cookies are to make!

How to make 5 ingredient pumpkin cookies


Just like with our 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies, these cookies have a ridiculously short list of ingredients and bake for only 10 minutes!

Doesn’t get any better than that 🙂

Pumpkin cookies made in minutes. Perfect for your Fall treat!

No flour needed. No processed sugars needed.

These are great made with maple syrup or even stevia.

If you want to use stevia to sweeten your cookies – omit the maple syrup and coconut flakes.


Our purely fit sisters sure have been seeing us eat these cookies a lot in our daily eats posts.

We are so excited to be sharing our newest favorite pumpkin cookie recipe with you.


These cookies can be enjoyed raw as there is no dairy or eggs!  Due to the pumpkin these cookies are more soft and moist and not as crunchy but taste AMAZING!  They literally melt-in-your-mouth! They have a lovely pumpkin buttery flavor.

These cookies are yummy warm out of the oven or cold straight from the refrigerator.

Here is your recipe for 10 minute pumpkin cookies made without flour and eggs.


5 ingredient pumpkin cookies (grain,gluten,dairy,egg,soy free)

Yummy pumpkin cookie recipe. Made from just 5 ingredients and can be made sugar-free! 10 minute pumpkin cookies that are gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, soy-free, and paleo friendly.

  • Prep Time: 2 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: makes about 8 cookies 1x


  • 1 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons gelatin
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree


  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Mix together until it forms a dough.
  4. Scoop onto baking tray.
  5. Dough is thick.
  6. Flatten cookies if you desire a flat cookie.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes.
  8. Let cookies cool on cooling rack a few minutes.


Can enjoy cookies raw for a yummy dough ball cookie or dehydrate them for a few hours.

Substitution ideas:

We used coconut butter – any nut or seed butter would work just fine.

For the gelatin you can use any protein powder of your liking or you can try any ‘flour’ of your liking.

For the coconut flakes you can use a nut meal.

For the maple syrup you can use stevia or coconut nectar.

Simply the best pumpkin cookie recipe! The only pumpkin cookies you will eat from now on 😉

oh inlove pumpkin. And coconut butter – I love this ingredient but it’s so hard to find sometimes! Do you think agar agar would work in place for gelatin? I know you said protein powder would work well here as well. Thanks for sharing and I hope you get your mornings back soon!!

purelytwins October 16, 2014 - 4:54 pm

Coconut butter is so easy to make yourself 😉 Do protein powder or nut flour over agar for the gelatin.

Leah October 16, 2014 - 5:54 pm

Must try! I can’t tolerate nuts so this looks great!

purelytwins October 16, 2014 - 7:18 pm

Let us know how you like them!

Leah October 16, 2014 - 11:44 pm

purelytwins October 17, 2014 - 10:52 am

Same here 😉

Jenn October 16, 2014 - 10:58 pm

ive never had coconut butter. It sounds Iike a lot of butter. Are these good for you? Maybe coconut butter is better for you than regular butter?

purelytwins October 17, 2014 - 10:55 am

Jenn it depends on the person, some people can handle more fats than others. Regular butter is good to you if you can handle dairy. We do our best to limit our dairy. Coconut butter is full of essential amino acids, calcium, and magnesium, plus it’s healthy fats, so keeps you full longer. It has lauric acid, which boosts immunity and destroys harmful bacteria, viruses, and funguses. And coconut can help boosts your metabolism. No need to fear your fats 😉

Pumpkin and coconut sounds like an awesome combination. I recently made a loaf of pumpkin bread. I am obsessed.

purelytwins October 17, 2014 - 10:56 am

Yes love pumpkin bread!

Michelle @ Vitamin Sunshine October 18, 2014 - 2:56 am

I love the ingredients! Anyway I can put more pumpkin in my mouth 🙂

purelytwins October 18, 2014 - 9:30 am

yay for pumpkin 😉

Donna October 18, 2014 - 8:00 pm

These were very good but they were also rather crumbly. I put them in the fridge and they hardened a little but still had to quickly pop them in my mouth. Which wasn’t a problem! Maybe I would just eat them raw if I made them again.

purelytwins October 18, 2014 - 9:15 pm

Glad you enjoyed the cookies, maybe add a little more maple syrup or make sure your coconut butter is more wet not dry. If it is dry it will be crumbly. xoxo

Maya October 19, 2014 - 3:58 am

I made these using brazil nuts and coconut flour! Check out my recipe tweaks here

purelytwins October 19, 2014 - 9:04 am

Glad you enjoyed our recipe.

Do you use the gelatin in the green can or red can?

purelytwins November 4, 2014 - 9:23 am

We used the green, but we have had people tell us they used the red and it worked okay (provides more a chewier cookie)

kristin November 9, 2014 - 10:31 am

YUmmm!!! You guy are awesome and so likeable!! I seriously love your videos!!! I need to buy some gelatin!! Thanks for all the sub options too!

purelytwins November 9, 2014 - 11:48 am

Thank you for the sweet comment and support!

Jana November 13, 2014 - 6:00 am

Love pumpkin and love to experiment with dessert recipes using it – so this one goes to my list of must try recipes :)! Thanks for the tip ;)!

Taylor December 22, 2014 - 12:10 pm

Can you think of anything that I could sub for the gelatin as I’m vegetarian?

Nancy T December 31, 2014 - 10:50 am

Thanks for such an interactive post, sisters! 🙂 I really enjoyed following the video and your step-by-step pictures. The recipe looks very easy and yummy! I love pumpkin and I love cookies —> Pumpkin cookies? That’s 2 of my faves in one! 😀

Jill Mason April 26, 2017 - 6:54 pm

Ok so i’m New to AIP Paleo cooking… I have tried for two days to make different cookies including this one just now, but I’m sad to say I followed eactly and they just ran into a liquid and filled the cookie sheet???
What am I doing wrong please help, husband ready to jump ship!!

purelytwins April 27, 2017 - 3:18 am

Did you watch the video? Did you use homemade coconut butter? Did you use gelatin?

Lisa December 16, 2020 - 12:24 pm

If you use stevia in place of maple syrup for this recipe, what quantity would you recommend?
