No-Bake Maple Pumpkin Coconut Macaroons, Vegan+ Gluten-Free

Yesterday I shared a super quick and easy Thanksgiving side dish and today I’m excited to share one more dessert idea.

These No-Bake Maple Pumpkin Coconut Macaroons are the perfect vegan and gluten-free Thanksgiving dessert – especially when your oven is already jam-packed with other goodies! I added a chocolate topping just for fun but the pumpkin spice flavor definitely holds its own with or without chocolate.

One thing to note with this recipe, the coconut oil holds everything together so if the macaroons are left at room temperature for too long they’ll begin to get a little melty. I recommend storing them in the refrigerator and not letting them sit out at room temperature for more than an hour.

  1. I made these yesterday, without the chocolate, and they tasted very similar to the pumpkin Coco-roons (I think that’s what they were called) that are like $8/bag. I actually had found some of them at the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market for $4/bag, but that’s still about $.50 a piece! I knew there had to be an easy copy-cat recipe that would be much cheaper, so thanks for sharing this! I’ll definitely be making them again, especially since Grocery Outlet also had bags of Let’s Do Organic shredded coconut for $2. Score!

    The only slight change I made was to use half coconut flour and half almond flour.

    Have you ever tried doing an apple version?
