For the Pumpkin Cookies:

- 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)

- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

- 1/2 cup maple syrup

- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

- 2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)

- 1 cup almond meal

- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Raw Chocolate Filling:

- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder

- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

- 1/4 cup maple syrup

- A pinch of salt


1. Pumpkin Cookie Preparation:

- In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined.

- In a separate bowl, combine the rolled oats, almond meal, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt.

- Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until a dough forms. If the dough seems too wet, add a bit more almond meal. Conversely, if it's too dry, add a splash of almond milk.

- Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to firm up slightly.

2. Shape and Bake:

- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

- Remove the dough from the refrigerator and scoop out spoonfuls to form cookies. Use your hands to shape them into round discs. These cookies won't spread much during baking, so shape them as you'd like them to turn out.

- Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown around the edges. Keep a close eye on them; they can burn quickly.

- Once done, let the cookies cool on a wire rack while we prepare the raw chocolate filling.

3. Raw Chocolate Filling:

- In a bowl, whisk together the raw cacao powder, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt until you have a silky, smooth chocolate filling.

4. Assemble Your Pumpkin Cookie Raw Chocolate Sandwiches:

- Take one pumpkin cookie and spoon a generous dollop of the raw chocolate filling onto its flat side.

- Place another cookie on top, flat side down, to create a delightful sandwich.

5. Chill and Enjoy:

- These treats are heavenly when served immediately, but they can also be chilled in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to firm up the chocolate filling.

- Serve your Pumpkin Cookie Raw Chocolate Sandwiches with a warm cup of chai tea or a pumpkin spice latte for the ultimate autumn indulgence.

There you have it, a simple yet utterly delightful fall treat that brings the cozy flavors of the season to your taste buds. These Pumpkin Cookie Raw Chocolate Sandwiches are perfect for sharing with loved ones or savoring in blissful solitude. Enjoy every bite of this autumn-inspired delight! 🎃🍪🍫
