Pumpkin s’mores cookies are a delicious twist on a pumpkin cookie! Made gluten free, with vegan marshmallows and dairy free chocolate chips in every bite.
As I continue my journey to infuse pumpkin into literally anything and everything, I’m excited to share the perfect pumpkin cookie for summer, pumpkin s’mores cookies!
You don’t need a fire pit and skewers to make these, just a few simple ingredients and pumpkin and pumpkin spice. S’mores are such a summer staple, and pumpkin such a fall one, so I though combining the two made for the perfect summer or fall treat!
These pumpkin cookies are thin and crispy with gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate chips in every bite! The recipe is super easy to make, gluten free and a little lower in sugar than a typical cookie recipe. Made with almond flour and just a couple other simple ingredients, you’ll love how easy they are to make.
In my book, pumpkin is a year round food and If you’re reading this post right now I’m betting you like it that much too! I’m really excited because in just over a month, my first cookbook, The Great Big Pumpkin Cookbook is hitting store shelves! From pumpkin pancakes to pumpkin dog treats, everything is covered in the book with plenty of dairy free, gluten free and paleo options as well!
pumpkin cookies with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips
Thin, chewy and delicious, these cookies have an awesome taste and texture! Usually to get a really nice thin and crispy cookie you need to refrigerate the dough. Not with these! These cookies are made with almond flour and almond butter which contribute to their thin and crispy texture. I also found that vegan mini marshmallows work the best in the recipe. Regular marshmallows will melt into the cookie batter while cooking. I REPEAT: regular marshmallows will MELT into these cookies and not turn out like this. They will still taste good, however will not look exactly like these do!
After they’re a day old, I recommend heating them up in the microwave for a couple of seconds to get the marshmallows and chocolate chips inside each bite all warm and gooey again!
ingredients for gluten & dairy free pumpkin s’mores cookies
- creamy unsweetened & unsalted almond butter– I love this one from Target. Make sure it’s a very drippy, creamy consistency
- pumpkin puree – I always have a can of LIBBY’S 100% Pure Pumpkin
- almond flour
- light brown sugar or coconut sugar
- vanilla extract
- vegan mini marshmallows — I use this brand every time I make these cookies. **PLEASE NOTE:The marshmallows MUST BE VEGAN in order for the cookies to turn out like this. **
- chocolate chips or chunks (I love this brand for baking)
- baking soda
** I have not tested this recipe with other flours or regular butter or vegan butter vs. almond butter. I recommend using creamy, unsweetened almond butter! Please note that subbing different ingredients will most likely give you a different result.
