Quick Pumpkin Cookie Dough
This pumpkin cookie dough dip has a good amount of pumpkin spice flavor with the consistency of real cookie dough thanks to the coconut flour and peanut butter. I like adding chocolate chips because they make it taste more like a treat.
Having something fresh and ready to go for snacks eliminates the stress of what to eat when you’re on the run. And this pumpkin dip is made with healthier ingredients, so I can feel good about serving it to my kids.

Edible Pumpkin Cookie Dough Ingredients
To make this healthy pumpkin cookie dough dip you will need:
- pumpkin puree: make sure you use pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. There is a big difference in flavor between the two.
- maple syrup: just enough to sweeten the dip, but not too much. You can also use honey or a few drops of stevia for a sugar-free alternative. Read the recipe notes below on how to make it with stevia.
- coconut flour: highly absorbent and helps the dough hold together, like real cookie dough.
- peanut butter: this helps thicken the consistency. If there is a nut allergy in your family, swap it for one of these nut butter alternatives.
- pumpkin spice: to give it pumpkin spice flavor, but cinnamon works too.
- chocolate chips: the chocolate is optional, but my kids love it in this recipe. You can swap for chopped nuts or enjoy this dip plain.
This recipe calls ½ cup pumpkin puree, but don’t toss out the leftovers! I have an entire post on what to make with leftover pumpkin puree, so none of it goes to waste.
How to Make Edible Pumpkin Cookie Dough
If you can make chocolate chip cookies, then you can certainly make this cookie dough dip! Grab a large bowl, and let’s get to work:
- Open a can of pumpkin
Add the pumpkin to a large bowl and stir in the maple syrup, coconut flour, peanut butter, and pumpkin spice until evenly combined.
- Toss in some chocolate
Fold the chocolate into the pumpkin mixture, making sure they are evenly distributed into the dip.
And that’s it! Your pumpkin dip is ready to serve. Any leftovers can be refrigerated in single-serve portions for up to 5 days.

Could I use another type of fat instead of nut butter? Say maybe coconut oil, or vegetable oil?
I have not tried this recipe without it.
Can cinnamon be left out or replaced with anything?
absolutely. feel free to omit.
This looks really good, but I’m not sure what to dip it in. Veggies seem odd… (I’m thinking veggies & cookie dough? 🙂
My favorite pumpkin recipe – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
apple slices, pear slices, pita chips, or right over yogurt! 🙂
What brand of stevia drops do you use, Laura? I have the powdered Stevia that I use for my coffee and tea – would that work?
that works too! I use the ones from whole foods, 365 brand I think!
Is the coconut flour necessary? If I want to leave it out, what can I replace it with?
Yes, the coconut flour is necessary to give this dip its texture.
Is there something that I could substitute for the coconut flour?
Unfortunately not for this recipe with these measurements. You’ll need about 4x the oat flour.
So, if I used oat flour, would I then need 1/2 C (if I replaced the coconut flour)? I have oat flour on hand, not coconut flour.
I have not tried this recipe with oat flour. As a general rule of thumb, I always recommend finding another recipe all together since coconut flour-based recipes have been specifically developed to use it in the ratios. Sorry!
I love pumpkin season! I typically make a delicious pumpkin soup.
