Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Truffles
- 1/2 cup (122.5 g) pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup (161 g) maple syrup
- 2 tsp coconut oil or vegan butter optional
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1/4 tsp ginger
- pinch of salt
- 1 to 1.5 cups (125 g) flour I use oat flour, use any flour that you would usually use to make cookie dough
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- Heat pumpkin puree, maple syrup, oil, spices and salt in a skillet at medium heat. Mix well and cook to thicken slightly,3 to 4 minutes.
- Cool the mixture, add 1 cup flour and mix in. You will have to press and knead the flour in. Add more flour if needed to make a soft smooth dough. (Use any flour that you normally use to make cookie dough).Taste and add some sugar if needed.
- Make balls out of the dough. In a bowl, mix in sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls to coat and serve.
- Store in the refrigerator for upto 5 days.

making these now and cant seem to get the dough firm enough to form balls. Any suggestions?
chill it for an hour see if its firm enough , add more flour if needed.
Are they ok to freeze?
they should work fine frozen
Wow…i love the flavour and thank you so much for the recipe…
I’ll be following this blog….
I love oat flour, so I knew I would love them! I added more spice and these disappeared quickly!
I made these exactly as the recipe. The flavour was good but the texture was so awful. I had to throw them out 🙁
oh no. I am sorry they didnt work out. maybe use a different flour? or add chocolate chips to the dough. You can also bake them. roll in sugar, flatten the balls, and bake them for 11 to 12 minutes.
Holy moly I am making these babies tonight! I LOVE Snickerdoodle and have pumpkin puree that needs to be used up. This is perfect!
These are absolutely delicious. I made them first thing this morning with few modifications due to lack of ingredients/whimsy. I toasted the oats and I used raw agave nectar and found that I had to double the oat flour since agave seemed very runny. Also I substituted agave for a spoon of organic ginger syrup I had just cos I love ginger. Lovely receipe and very very easy to make. Husband and kid loved it
🙂 i am glad it worked out with the changes. add more sugar instead of syrup if the syrup makes it too wet. i love these with extra ginger too. i’ll add some candied ginger in them next time.
Curious about the maple syrup! At the moment we only have Mrs. Butterworths syrup, is there something else I can use instead of it? Recipe looks scrumptious!!
you can use any sweet syrup. they should work out fine with it.

I bet this taste like little bites of heaven. I love cookie dough and would probably devour half this recipe in the bowl before even rolling it into truffles then question your “16-18” count. Delish!
lol. yeah those are anyway small truffles because i like more sugar and cinnamon per bite!
What’s effect on recipe if made oil-free? And are there any other oil options besides coconut oil and Earth balance? Or oil substitutions entirely? Excited to try this!
You can make it oil free. The oil just makes it slightly more rich and fudgy. Use any other oils like safflower, canola.
Can I bake them? Not sure I like eating raw dough (flour).
These are cookie dough truffles, so they are not baked, you can bake them by shaping them into flat cookies. Sprinkle some sugar on top and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. i have another pumpkin cookie recipe coming shortly

i love the cinnamon sugar on them. they are nowhere like donut holes 🙂
Oh my those look wonderful! There’s really nothing like eating raw cookie dough. <3
