  • cup vegan butter melted
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • cup caster sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 flax egg mix 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water, let sit for 15 minutes
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum if not in gluten-free flour mix
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add the melted butter, brown sugar, and caster sugar to a large mixing bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Add the pumpkin puree, flax egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, xanthan gum, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  • Sieve the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Mix together gently.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour to make it easier to handle. You can also put it in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Roll the dough into balls. Place them on lined baking sheets.
  • Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, until golden brown on top. Leave the cookies on the baking sheets for 5 to 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack with a spatula.



  • Xanthan gum is only necessary in this recipe if you're using a gluten free flour that does NOT include any. I suggest using this flour, that does have Xanthan gum in it. If you use regular AP flour, no xanthan is needed.
