Peanut Butter Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Vegan)

If you love salty meets sweet flavors, this spin on a peanut butter cookie is for you. These Peanut Butter Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chunk Cookies with a hint of sea salt on top are everything your cookie dreams are craving. They are chewy and nutty with loads of melty chocolate and pumpkin seeds nestled in each bite. I used my fave spicy raw pumpkin seeds and a vegan chocolate bar broken in pieces for the chocolate. Whip a batch of these cookies up today! And see how I like to eat them...

So these were so freaking good.

Like, really good.

Like, I may have been eating them at inappropriate times of the day good.

Like 10am.

And then 1pm.

And a nibble after dinner, too.

But for good measure guys, I have been serving them with a dollop of my favorite peanut butter on top. Best move on my part! So good. Reminded me of a sort of "Nutter Butter" flavor..

These vegan cookies are a fun spin for peanut butter cookie lovers' like me.
