Yes, you heard that correctly.
Pumpkin spice CHEESECAKE FILLED cookies. The ultimate fall dessert recipe. Plus, each cookie is just 85 calories with 3 g fat, 10 g carbs, 5 g protein – and only 3 g of sugar!
Gluten free, refined-sugar free, high protein, and can easily be made vegan with simple substitutions.

Sound and look amazing!!!! Any paleo subs you would suggest for the regular flour? More coconut flour, almond flour?
I am not sure, I’ve only tried it with Bob’s Red Mill all purpose gluten free, which is grain-free but I don’t think it is paleo!
Wonderful idea! I LOVE pumpkin spice in everything!
