Sugar Free Soft Pumpkin Cookies
This delicious and seasonal recipe for Sugar Free Soft Pumpkin Cookies can also be made gluten free, low carb, or keto as well.
Preheat your oven to 325° and prep your cookie sheets for nonstick.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg. Set this bowl aside.
Next, in a mixing bowl,cream together the sugar alternative with the butter. Once this is blended, you can beat in the pumpkin puree and then the vanilla extract and egg.
For this next step, we will add the flour mixture from the medium bowl to the mixing bowl. To do so add half of the mixture at a time gently mixing between the additions.
Bake your cookies for 18-20 minutes or until the cookies appear to start browning and firming. Allow the cookies to cool before adding a glaze. Alternatively, sprinkle with granulate sugar alternative about 12 minutes into baking to get more of a sugar cookie style to this cookie.
As mentioned, this cookie recipe calls for ground cinnamon. Please choose a ground cinnamon that does not come with sugar added to it in order to keep this recipe as low in sugar as possible.
Also needed in this recipe is ground nutmeg.
You can find ground nutmeg online if you are unable to find it at your local grocery store. Again, please select a ground nutmeg that has not been combined with other ingredients such as sugar.
Pumpkin puree comes in a can (usually 15 ounce) and is the kind of pumpkin that is used in baking recipes such as this one.
To make this low carb, use a low carb all purpose flour.
Also, to make this keto use a keto all purpose flour.
Lastly, to make this recipe gluten free, use an all purpose gluten free flour.
Also, if you are using Almond flour, please add an additional egg to the batter to aid in the binding process. I suggest anyone using any of the all purpose flour alternatives check the packaging to see if an additional egg or other binder for gluten free baking is needed as well.
