Hey everyone! Can you believe we're getting closer to that time of year? Yep, pumpkin season is just around the corner. But you know what? I'm jumping into the pre-pumpkin excitement a little early this time. Late August has that special charm when we all start thinking about pumpkin spice, even though fall isn't quite here. I've got something awesome to share, and it's a throwback from the past!

Remember when we chatted about some fantastic pumpkin recipes? Well, I've dug into the archives and found a gem that's just perfect for this pre-pumpkin season buzz. It's none other than my beloved Pumpkin Spice Delight Cookies!

Pumpkins, those amazing gems that come from North America, bring in all those cozy feels. They're like a sneak peek into the warmth of fall. I've always had a soft spot for pumpkins. From September through December, my kitchen is a pumpkin haven, and I love cooking up pumpkin-inspired treats.

So, let's get to it – while we're all gearing up for pumpkin spice season and the pumpkin frenzy, I thought, why not start a bit early? These Pumpkin Spice Delight Cookies are a teaser for the pumpkin magic that's coming soon. And guess what? It's not just about these cookies. I've got more pumpkin-filled recipes lined up this week to go along with the pre-pumpkin season posts I shared earlier.

Now, about these cookies. They're not just any cookies; they're like a sweet blast from the past that captures everything we love about fall. Imagine taking a bite of a cookie that's moist, chewy, and packed with those cozy pumpkin spice flavors that bring a smile to your face. Recipe follows.

  • ½ cup almond butter

  • ¾ - 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • ½ tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • 2 tablespoons almond meal

Optional Add-ins:

  • 2 tablespoons cacao vegan chocolate chips

  • ¼ cup crushed pecans


  1. Begin by combining all the delightful ingredients in a food processor. Allow the mixture to whirl and twirl until a harmonious blend is achieved, resulting in a gooey delight.

  2. As you savor the aromatic symphony, remember to introduce the oats and almond meal during the final whirl. These ingredients lend a satisfying texture to the symphony of flavors.

  3. Transition this delectable concoction to a spacious mixing bowl. Feel free to fold in the optional treasures of chocolate chips, cacao nibs, or the delightful crunch of crushed pecans.

  4. Now, the creative masterpiece is ready to take form. Using generous spoonfuls of the batter, arrange them onto non-stick drying sheets, providing ample space for each cookie's transformation.

  5. The dehydrator then becomes the conductor of this culinary symphony. Allow the cookies to bask in its warmth at 115 degrees for 6 to 8 hours. This orchestration will coax the cookies into a tender, chewy state.

  6. As the crescendo nears, transfer the cookies to mesh trays for a final encore of 6 to 8 hours. The duration is guided by your desire for the perfect texture – an exquisite balance between chewiness and moistness.

  7. Once the final note is played, the cookies cool gracefully, ready to enrapture your taste buds.

  8. A gentle reminder – these symphonies of flavor are best kept in the refrigerator, where they will harmonize beautifully for up to one week.
