Cinnamon Coating

  • 1/2 cup granulated sweetener (as healthy as possible--use xylitol for low-carb)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine ingredients for Cinnamon Coating and set aside for later use.
  • Combine flour, salt, baking soda and spices in a medium-sized bowl.
  • If coconut oil is not soft enough to mix easily, melt in a pan over low heat. Place in a bowl.
  • Add sweetener and egg (or substitute) to the softened oil. Beat well. Add pumpkin puree and vanilla. Beat well again.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly, but do not over-mix.
  • Take a small amount of dough (I use a small cookie scoop for this process), roll into balls, drop in cinnamon sugar topping, and roll to coat. (NOTE: For gluten-free cookies, the smaller the cookie the better as they will crumble more easily than those made with gluten flours.)
  • Place on a baking stone or cookie sheet (I highly recommend baking stones) about 2 inches apart, flattening a bit with your hand (or the bottom of a glass).
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
  • Cool for approximately 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet to cool on a cooling rack.
  • Try not to eat them all at once :-).
