- Using a rubber spatula, fold through your chocolate chips.
- Form 12 small balls of dough and place on the lined tray. Press each ball into a slight cookie shape, and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice over the top.
- Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes, or until the edges have gone slightly brown and golden. Remember, cookies will continue to cook as they cool.

To enjoy cookies from the freezer, allow thawing at room temperature or in the refrigerator overnight.
Can you substitute the pumpkin pie spice?
if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice or don’t want to make your own, you can use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
Can I use eggs if I’m not vegan?
If you don’t follow a strict vegan diet, you can substitute the ground chia seeds with a large egg.
I haven’t tried another vegan substitute so I can only vouch for what is recommended.
What is a substitute for tahini?
You can easily substitute tahini for another nut or seed butter, like almond, peanut butter or cashew butter.
