- 3 eggs
- 1 cup coconut oil (warm to make liquid)
- 1 cup coconut sugar (for more sweetness, use 1/2 cup organic sugar and 1/2 cup coconut sugar)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin works fine)
- 6 tbsp Teeccino Pumpkin Spice (follow the brewing directions)
- 3 cups TeeChia Cranberry Apple
- 2 1/2 cups gluten-free flour ( We recommend King Arthur or Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Baking Flour)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- Cover the dried cranberries with hot water and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain.
- Brew a strong concentrate of Teeccino by using 6 tbsp to 4 cups water in a drip coffee maker or 20 oz of water in a French press pot. Alternatively, brew 2 cups of brewed Teeccino in an espresso machine.
- Soak the 3 cups of TeeChia in the 2 cups of brewed Teeccino. Stir until all the liquid is evenly absorbed and let sit.
- Cream together the wet ingredients including eggs, oil (*if the coconut oil is solid, heat it until it becomes liquid), and sugar in a food processor or with a hand blender until smooth and buttery. Add the pumpkin puree and mix.
- Mix the soaked TeeChia into the wet mixture in the food processor or with the hand mixer until it is dispersed.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and spices in a large bowl and add the wet mixture to them using a large spoon or the hand mixer at a low speed until the dough forms (do not overmix!).
- Add the drained cranberries into the dough by stirring with a spoon until incorporated.
- Grease one or more cookie sheets.
- Preheat the oven to 325°.
- Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop (#40) or large spoon that holds approximately 2 tbsp of dough (ice cream scoops work too). Flatten the dough balls with a fork or pat them into round balls. Spread 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet.
- Bake about 18 minutes until a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
Makes approximately 3 dozen large cookies
