How It's Made: The Cookies


  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (replace both quantities of flour with 1 1/4 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour if necessary)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup white or dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • zest of half an orange


  1. Place the oven rack in the middle and preheat the oven to 375 ° F (190 °C) or convection oven at 350 °F (180 °C).
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dried apricots, walnuts and chocolate. Put aside.
  3. In a mixer, beat the melted coconut oil and gradually add brown sugar until it becomes a light mixture. Add pumpkin, egg, vanilla and orange zest and mix well. Then, using a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients.
  4. Using a spoon, place the dough in balls on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Repeat this process with all the remaining dough

How It's Made: Pumpkin Purée Recipe


  • 1 pumpkin


  1. It takes a 500g pumpkin to get 250mL of mashed pumpkin so you will need at least one 360g pumpkin for this recipe.
  2. To make the puree, cut the pumpkin in two and scoop out the seeds and filaments. Bake it with the flesh side down at 375 °F (190 °C), until the flesh is tender (about 30 to 40 minutes). Let cool, and scrape the flesh.
