Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s definitely been a cookies kind of week. I put these together using some leftover pumpkin from a batch of pumpkin cheesecake muffins. Can’t let good pumpkin go to waste now can we? I love fall cooking. Yes, I have justified having one with my breakfast on occasion simply because of its pumpkin content…don’t judge me monkey.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbl pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin (canned or cooked, not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (if you make it with my hardcore hobbit applesauce this become even more numly!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Combine the sugar, applesauce, and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in the pumpkin.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spice.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Using a teaspoon drop the mix unto a baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 350F for 20-22 minutes.

Makes 46 cookies. Each cookie contains 34 calories, .4 grams of fat, and .4 grams of fibre. These are such a light and cake-like cookie. Pumpkin and chocolate were made to go together!
