  • Once combined well, add the almond flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking powder. mix well, and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
  • This will make the dough firmer and easier to roll into balls.

  • Place on baking sheet.

    These are unreal. I have been yelling off the rooftops for everyone to make these. I have made them twice this week. I love that they are not overly sweet. We plan to make them into ice cream sandwiches for Halloween.

  2. I made these last night for my roommates and I and we all loved them!! I made my own almond flour and used a little less coconut sugar for dipping and they were the perfect amount of sweetness and gooey texture that melts in your mouth. Tasted amazing with a bowl of ice cream 🙂
