Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies..
why haven’t I shared this recipe with you before??
This recipe is an oldie but goodie! I got this recipe from my sister-in-law many moons ago. I love how it uses a whole cup of pumpkin.
I had a friend who needed some cookies for a bake sale that they are having at our local library. I decided these needed to be made for the event.
Here is the recipe…
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp. soda, dissolved into 1 tsp. milk
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup nuts, optional
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Combine pumpkin, sugar, oil, and egg. Add dry ingredients. Mix in soda/milk mixture. Add remaining ingredients. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
- Remove and let cool.
How are you enjoying pumpkin season??
I have to admit since going on this lifestyle change I haven’t had as many goodies… which is very good I know… but that means its hard when you have to bake goodies like these and not be able to enjoy them. I know the benefits and the reason or purpose behind my lifestyle change and it truly has blessed me and made me healthier, but my problem isn’t with the cookies themselves, it’s the fact that I just cannot have one. I am sure you can relate!!!
These definitely are not healthy just because they have pumpkin in them… but they are really good pumpkin cookies!
I simply melted some orange candy chocolate melts and scribbled some on it! I think it gives it a little bit more of a pumpkin flare!
Do you have a favorite pumpkin cookie recipe?? Here is another one that I share earlier on the blog that is made with a cake mix… just as good!
I need to add more real pumpkin into my life through other means… but cookies is always a good idea!!!
Happy Pumpkin Day!!
I hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!!
