Two Peas and Their Pod: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies



I hope you are not sick of pumpkin recipes, because I have another one for you today:) I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They are a MUST bake every fall. This year I did some playing around and came up with a fabulous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie.

Halloween is the kick off to the holiday eating season. I decided to create a healthier cookie to balance out the rest of the sugary treats. I cut the butter in half and used applesauce and pumpkin instead. I also used half whole wheat flour and added in oatmeal-yea for added fiber! I did add chocolate chips because I love pumpkin and chocolate together, but raisins or dried cranberries would be good too!

I loved these cookies. They are plump, cakey cookies that don't disappoint. I put some in the freezer and I liked them better frozen:) Mmmmm!




Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


(Printable Recipe)


4 T unsalted butter, at room temperature

½ c. brown sugar

1/3 c. white sugar

1/4 c. applesauce

¾ c. pumpkin

1 egg

1 ½ tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. nutmeg

¼ tsp. all spice

¾ c. all purpose flour

1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1 1/4 c. oats

1 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cream the butter with the sugars until soft and creamy, using a mixer.

3. Add in applesauce, pumpkin, egg and vanilla.

4. In a separate bowl combine the salt, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, and flour. Whisk the ingredients together.

5. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients, with the mixer on low. Mix until blended.

6. Add the oats and briefly mix. Stir in the chocolate chips.

7. Scoop tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet that has a Silpat or parchment paper. 8. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes! Let cool on a rack.

I am on a mission this weekend to grab as many pumpkins and I can find to cut up for future use. For some reason I just can't get into the season and I blame the mild summer we had.

Awesome job!!!!
