These flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are healthier, gluten free, crisp on the outside, soft inside, delicious and super easy to make! This is my favourite cookies for fall.
I would like to start this post apologizing for being a little bit absent on my blog recently. These past two weeks I’ve been having severe lower back pain and because of this I took a break from work to try to get better. I’ve been doing lots of exercises to treat this pain and that’s why I’ve been doing better these days. I am now doing yoga 7 days of the week and swimming too, which has been very helpful. I know it is normal to have lower back pain during pregnancy, but since I’ve already had serious problems with my back before (one day I’ll write a post talking more about this problem that I have in my spine) the lower back pain during my pregnancy has been very aggressive. I am still exercising every day and as a result I got better quickly.
I am doing well and my baby is growing healthy every day. I didn’t share with you yet, but we did the ultrasound for the 20 weeks and of course we asked to know the gender of the baby. I was dying to know but as I said before I knew I was going to have a baby boy and I was right. We are expecting a little baby boy and I couldn’t be happier. I always wanted to have a boy and now I will be into the world of monsters, superheroes, dinosaurs and cars hahahha… So awesome! I can’t wait to have my baby in my arms. I am more and more exciting everyday. I already can feel him moving and it is the most wonderful and weird feeling you can have. We are also preparing his little nursery. I am so lucky that my husband is such a handyman and knows how to do everything. In a couple weeks we are going to paint the room and after that start to decorate. How exciting!! That is the best part.Talking about best part, I have to say that these cookies are the best fall cookies I’ve ever made. I have to be honest though I am not a huge fan of pumpkin. I know I must have some kind of palate problem. I mean who doesn’t like pumpkins?!! And it is also weird because my family loves pumpkins specially my mom who can eat it even for breakfast (I am not even kidding… hahahahah). But since all my food bloggers friends are baking fall recipes they all inspired me to make these cookies. I was surprised how they are tasty, light, crispy from the outside and very soft inside. Since I love crunchy cookies I always bake my cookies a little bit more approximately 10 minutes instead of 8 minutes. But if you like them chewier you should bake them for only 8 minutes. As I am crazy for dark chocolate I put lots of chocolate chips in there, which made these pumpkin cookies even better. I didn’t feel guilt eating them because actually they are healthier than other recipes since they don’t have contain any butter, oil or flour. It is gluten free and delicious!!! Hope you enjoy them this fall! Please try it and let me know how they turn out 😉
