Pumpkin Puff Cookies (clean and gluten free!)

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Nope, not Christmas. Fall baking! If you haven't been paying attention, I've busted out the pumpkin.  We needed a cookie recipe. Bad. Something that would satisfy even the sweetest tooth without the guilt.  Enter pumpkin puffs.  These bad boys are so light and fluffy they almost floated away!  I added dark chocolate chips (kid pleaser) and am calling them gluten free because I substituted brown rice flour and they turned out great!  I hope you enjoy them!

Preheat oven to 350*.  Whisk dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients.  Fold wet into dry.  If needed add 1-2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk or a little more Greek yogurt.  Spoon by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges start to turn golden/brown.  Cool on wire rack for 5-10 minutes.  Enjoy!
