Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin is simply awesome.  It is packed with vitamins and nutrients and adaptable for all kinds of recipes, and not simply sweets!  In case you missed it, I compiled a list of 30 awesome pumpkin recipes.  I didn't include this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, however, because I hadn't whipped them up yet.  But now, I have, and my family loves them!

Ingredients:

  • one 15 oz can of pumpkin (stock up at Amazon)
  • 1/2 cup of oil (I used grapeseed)
  • one cup of sugar
  • one egg
  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • two cups of semisweet chocolate chips
  • one cup of walnuts or pecans (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix together:  pumpkin, oil, sugar, and egg.  
  3. In a different bowl, mix together:  flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.
  5. Add vanilla, chocolate chips, and nuts and mix well.
  6. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and not doughy in the middle.  

(Because of the pumpkin, these cookies have a different texture and are more moist than your average cookie.)

  1. Ok. So these look amazing! Do you think you could send me some??

  2. I love making these but I'm lazy so – a box of cake mix, canned pumpkin and chips.  Yours looks like I should put more effort in :)

  3. Pumpkin and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combinations, so I am totally drooling right now!

  4. I'm very curious about this! I have never had pumpkin with chocolate. How is the pumpkin aftertaste?

  5. I have been totally meaning to make some of these!  Usually I make pumpkin muffins, but cookies are sounding pretty darn good right now.

  6. I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!  These look really soft and delicious!
