Your ‘Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie‘ Questions Answered:

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

Yes, just swap the all-purpose flour for a GF all-purpose flour. My favorite is Bob’s Red Mill 1-1.

Can I sub the vegan butter for coconut oil?

I have not tested this recipe using softened coconut oil, but I believe the final results would yield similarly. I suggest using refined coconut oil, so the coconut taste isn’t prominent.

How do I store the cookies? Can I freeze the dough?

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. You can portion the dough and freeze in a plastic bag for 2-3 months. Let frozen dough rest at room temperature for 10 minutes then bake for 14 minutes at 340F. Bake for a couple minutes longer, if needed.
