"Spooky" SunButter Chocolate Pumpkin Sandwich Cookie

I don’t know about you guys, but usually I am all about Thanksgiving and Christmas and let Halloween go by the wayside. And this year was going to be no different, until Natalie, Daniel and I had an idea to make a video. This of course was going to suite the theme of Halloween well and offer you guys a Gluten and Dairy free holiday treat, which is something I could’t say no to!

Well, let’s just say the creative process got a little out of hand, but don’t worry it’s for your benefit! Not only did the cookie recipe turn out to be an out of this world amazing recipe, but we basically made a mini movie for the recipe…

Therefore even if you aren’t feeling the Halloween baking spirit…? Preheat that oven, watch the video and let the spooky Halloween vibes roll!

SO now that you know you need these cookies in your life, here’s the recipe!

Ingredients

Cookie

  • 1 cup (250g) No Sugar Added SunButter

  • 1/2 cup (80g) coconut sugar

  • 1/4 cup (30g) tapioca speech

  • 1/4 cup (20g) cacao powder or cocoa powder

  • 1/3 cup (80g) nondairy milk

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp salt

Filling

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/2 cup No Sugar Added SunButter

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

  • Optional: 1 tbsp coconut oil (if it’s too thick)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the SunButter, coconut sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.

  3. Add the tapioca starch, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Mix to form a thick dough.

  5. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Arrange on a baking pan lined with parchment paper (leave room in between, they will spread so I only recommend 8-10 per pan). Repeat until all the dough is gone, you will need 2-3 pans/batches.

  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350F.

  7. Let them cool for at least 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  8. For the filling, stir together all the ingredients until smooth.

  9. Spoon a dollop of filling onto one cookie, top with another, and squish into a cookie sandwich. Add sprinkle eyes for extra Halloween vibes!

Now that you are have all of the creepy baking vibes rolling, enjoy the recipe and let us know what you think of our creation!
