Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies - Gluten & Milk Free

I have been sick now for most of the last 2 months with horrible ear infections.  They go away, then come back and well - back again today (as well as a torn ear drum) so I decided I have been good enough the last month with not making sweets that I was due a splurge :)   I found a recipe on and pretty much followed it except of course substituting my flours.  The link to the recipe is here.

Also, note that I did use canned pumpkin. I normally NEVER use this, but always do it from scratch.  But it is -20 outside and even if it were not a Sunday (shops are all closed on Sundays here) I would not have felt like going to the shop for a pumpkin anyway. I found a can that has been sitting in the pantry now for years (still good use by date though ;-) so I just used that. Will use up the rest of it on the weekend to make some Gluten Free Waffles and muffins and freeze them so will have munchies now and then.
