Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of my favorite things, in the whole wide world is pumpkin.  No, seriously. I love it so much that you could even ask someone I’ve only had a couple of conversations with, and they could tell you, pumpkin would be on my list of favorite things. It’s almost embarrassing. 😉

I remember the first time I  bit into a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie, I was around the age of 13, and my older sister was making them. From the first moment I tasted it, I knew…it was true love. I then proceeded to eat every last one in that cookie jar! And let me tell you, I still have no regrets about that decision.*cue smirking*

These are not all that unlike the ones I had that day. The difference you ask? Well, I’d be glad to tell you. Because of my eating restrictions, and the eating restrictions of the people around me, I wanted to make these work for both me and many of them. So, after some trial and error, I’ve managed to make these both gluten-free and vegan!  Not to mention they’re also very easy to make. 🙂

I hope these bring as much warmth to your table as they did to mine.
