Sultana and Pecan Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookies

Deliciously soft and chewy vegan and gluten-free pumpkin pie spiced cookies stuffed with sultanas and pecan nuts. The perfect quick bake for a tasty afternoon treat with a cup of tea, plus they come together in 5 minutes in one bowl.

Pumpkin pie season is most certainly here, and I am loving playing around with lots of autumnal flavours and recipes. It really is such a cosy and warming flavour and this year, more than ever, I am getting involved with this seasonal blend. This recipe for Sultana and Pecan Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookies uses my DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend which only contains 4 ingredients mixed together and stored in a jar. In my experience, it is so much easier to make this up in big batches to have to hand whenever the pumpkin pie spice cravings kick in.

These cookies were one Sunday afternoon experiment. I knew I wanted to make cookies but I wasn’t exactly sure where I was headed – but often those are the best recipes! I started with some almond butter for a rich base and added some mashed banana for natural sweetness. I love playing around the coconut flour which adds a light and crumbly texture while helping to bind the mix. The oats add substance, fibre and more protein along with the chia seeds, a little baking powder for rise and then sultanas and pecan nuts for bite. You can certainly use different combinations of nuts and dried fruits here – but I think these two work really well with the autumnal pumpkin pie spice blend.

These cookies take only 5 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes in the oven, so you are only 15 minutes away from a delicious and cosy cookie. They are great fresh from the oven, although they are quite delicate until cool. They are chewy and soft, moist and golden brown with gorgeously warming aromas.
