Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

5 Dec
If you’re a regular PB&P reader, you know how much I love pumpkin flavored things!  I especially love using pumpkin when baking because A. I’m obsessed with pumpkin and B. it’s a low fat, low calorie, low salt and high fiber food.  It can be used to replace eggs and/or oil in many recipes and creates a really moist product.  So by popular request, I’m sharing my recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, a tasty seasonal treat for only about 110 calories each!


1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups flour (I use half whole-wheat flour)
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix pumpkin, sugar, oil & egg together in one bowl.  
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and milk.  
4. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and combine well.  Add vanilla and chocolate chips.
5. Spoon dough onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake about 10 minutes.

Makes about 2 1/2 doz cookies.  The final product is a little fluffier than a typical cookie, but I promise they’re delicious and always a big hit! 

Happy (& healthy) Eating! 🙂
