Ingredients (16)

  • 1 cup fresh pureed (or canned) pumpkin
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup natural applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour (KA)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (KA)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

These cookies are a great way to use pumpkin in a way that allows the pumpkin to shine without intimidating non-pumpkin eaters. Their cakey texture more similar to a muffin top than a traditional cookie but that doesn’t seem to stop the cookies from disappearing.


  1. 1Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil (applesauce), vanilla and egg.
  2. 2In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
  3. 3Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in.
  4. 4Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  5. 5Add chocolate chips and mix.
  6. 6Drop by spoonful on parchment paper and bake at 365° F for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
